Ceramic Strainer

While cooking lately, we've had a bit of a problem.  We have to hold our strainer while straining.  It's like a pot with a handle and mesh basket on the end.  Basically, someone has to hold the handle while someone pours the pasta.  I have managed to do this one handed but it's high risk.  I'm trying to pour scolding hot water while holding a heavy pot with one hand and the strainer with the other, which leaves no hands to hold baby. And husband is not as coordinated.  Since I'm financially restricted, but have access to clay, I made one!  This bad boy is hands free!

Post glaze fire. Waxy Purple glaze and Black Pearl glaze.

Tested it out tonight, what do you think?
