Muggage

The last few days have been centered around our First Friday Exhibition Opening at LibertyTown. We're having a fundraiser this month and the support has been wonderful. I''ll write more on that later.
I did get back to the studio for a few hours today to finish this batch of mugs. I'll throw more tomorrow. Time's a'wastin'!

I like a strap handle on most things like a mug...mine have grown broader than at Winchcombe, but relative to many, they are somewhat understated.

I put several different 'dust catchers' where your thumb falls on the top of the handle. I like how this one mirrors the same shape as the handle itself.

Wonderful handles!

I'd love to see how you pull off your "dust catchers". They look mighty sweet.

I like the handles too, with their dust catchers.

But what I like even more is the practice of putting '...age' on the end of words to make a quantity or bulk of something - like kilnage - nice :)

I'll get my coat...
