"German sociologist, Georg Simmel argued that the handle of a vase (or mug) bridges two worlds, the utilitarian and the non-utilitarian. A vessel, according to Simmel, “unlike a painting or statue, is not intended to be insulated and untouchable but is meant to fulfill a purpose—if only symbolically. For it is held in the hand and drawn into the movement of practical life.”"(From Christopher Benfey's NYRB essay, "Wittgenstein's Handles.")
