Some mornings require an extra late latte • I’ve been handling mugs for days… And I have another day of mug handles ahead of me. Handles are the bane of my existence. I feel like they truly are what separates the wheat from the shaft. I obsess over them. The proportions to the mug, the curve, the visual weight, the feeling in the hand. They never seem good enough.
So today I pulled out this old mug (circa 2010?). I keep him around to remind me that I have come a long way, but also that the road keeps going. Because I’m sure that at the time I felt like I was finally getting somewhere, and now it just seems so crude. So he gets to stick around. And I get to go back to the studio and continue the quest for the best handle I can make, today.
