Handles and Maker's Marks
So, now that I'm fairly consistent about my cylinders, I should probably face my fear of handles. They're just so hard. Pulling handles has quickly becoming one of my least favorite things, in life. So, I'm trying to find other ways that this can happen and have them not be so disastrously ugly. Maybe the extruder is the way to go?
And also trying to figure out a fun way to make a little stamp for the bottom of the pieces. A ceramicist I follow makes his marks from porcelain and carves his signature into it. I think that's what I'll be doing too. I like the idea of making it by hand, not just ordering it from a machine-made rubber stamp place. Everything hand-made, complete with the beautiful imperfections.
