A few posts back I mentioned the termination of the handle on my jugs. Michael Kline said he thought they looked like metal work. A former student of mine John Boyd followed up with pics of the forged iron and a form from the Han dynasty-China. Too bad nobody showed that Chinese potter how to pull a handle and a lip. A lovely form for a jug.
I do like that art deco style handle although it is a wee on the feminine side for my work.
