I used to dread making handles. I can remember it like it was yesterday. They just never seemed to really be part of the pot but were more like something that just had to get stuck on to perform a function. I now enjoy making handles. I love when they are just right, the balance, the curves, the weight based on the mug etc. etc. etc. This mug although quite simple has a lot going on with the swirl riding up the pot like a barbers spiral, and the impression near the bottom and all that ash, sort of peppered on this side of the mug. #anagama firing over 3 days, cooled for 4 nights. #makersgunnamake#handsandhustle#canadianceramics#handtotable#craft#ceramics#courtenaybc #comoxvalley #weareyqq #hellobc #canadiancreatives #vancouverisland #pottersofinstagram #pottersofperiscope#art_we_inspire #craftsman ##shophandmade #handmadeisbetter #contemporarycraft#makersgunnamake#handsandhustle#canadianceramics#handtotable#craft#Ceramics

New discovery AMAZING. Thanks @jbrett_art this is a metal mesh face mask that used for protection when using a chain saw. We used it for this #anagama firing and it deflected the heat so much. Those like me, who are short, stand at this kiln when stoking with the flames and heat pretty close to face level. The radiant heat is painfully hot. This mask made it so entirely enjoyable to stoke with no facial burning. (I do t mean burning like, I need to go to the burn clinic… I just mean burning like oh my good ness that's ridiculously HOT
