oldlady, thanks for the offer but it's really not necessary! We make our own molds for the pendant shapes. I really appreciate your kind thoughts, though.
We actually had a big flood in the last few days, haven't viewed the handbuilt videos yet but thanks for sending, Pres. I do already know sort of how to make handbuilt mugs, but am struggling to make them look less childlike while not using double or triple the time it takes to make them on the wheel. Labor time of course figures into our final prices.
One more quick question about the re-glazing...do pieces generally shrink AGAIN if they are re-fired? I was planning not to re-glaze the broken handle pieces as it's the inside of the mug that matters more (a few spots left bare by glaze). But I worry that the handle pieces won't match up to the body anymore if the mug body shrinks.
