How do I make my naturescape mugs?

With this one, I used the image below as reference for Jug Island, BC (near Belcarra Park).  Then I etched the island trees and water line in and set in in for bisk firing.  Then, I painted the island and mountains with underglaze.  I dipped a clear green translucent glaze for the bottom half and a slight blue dip glaze for the sky.  The mug was thrown off the hump, the handle pulled.  Fun!
