Bamboo handles

Funny just how many studio potters used these bamboo handles on teapots.
Briglin used them extensively, I even have a David Leach one, with the exact
same handle.

Were potters apprehensive about making a full handle for some reason,
and this was just an easy way out?

Somewhee in the world, there must have been a thriving cottage industry churning these out.

Well it make sense as the the heat does not transfer to the wood. Thermal break and all that but they are not very piratical.

I'm assuming that someone brought the concept back in the first half of C20th. I've seen several, but not starting till 40s? 50s?

Well many biscuit barrels in the 20s/30s had those woven cane handles, not Bamboo
exactly, but a similar idea.
I'm guessing there were too many rejects in the kiln, so this was an easier way of
doing it.
