(Thrown and handbuilt pottery often with wood additions such as lids,
knobs and bases) (Work may be gas-fired or wood-fired.)

Mark Issenberg (Rising Fawn, GA, USA)
(Recently I sent this link, and I wrote: "Hmmm, are there any handles
pulled from the pot here???" The short answer is "Yes" but you have to
look around the site to find it.) (About his decorative handles, he
explains: "One way to do this is to roll out a 3 x 4-inch slab of clay.
Roll a drill bit over the clay to create texture. Then roll the clay
around a pencil or small dowel rod with the texture on the outside.
Slide the clay off the pencil and attach the handle to the vase by
scoring and using slip. You also can add more texture around the
shoulder of the vase, using stamps and/or a sewing tracing wheel.")
(Beautiful website; beautiful functional ware.)
