Does anyone have any experience or tips, for how to create a "hand warmer" style of mug?
For those unfamiliar with the term, here is what they look like:
I've never made one, but had a student ask me how to do so. So, I said I'd look into it, and try to figure something out.
My first instinct, is to just throw the body, then cut out a portion of the wall, for the hand slot. Then form a thin slab on the inside to fill in the space, score/ slip it in place, and smooth together.
Is that about the gist of it, or is there a better/ easier way?
Edit: I noticed, that there is a part of the wall that bows out too. So it's not so much cutting a part of the wall out, as it is making a slice, pushing part out, part in, and then using a slab to make the interior slot?
