Thank you. Now, these are just perfect. It looks comfortable. It would nice to cup in the hand and feel the warmth of a good tea or coffee. I particularly like the way the handle sits on the cup and not pushed into it. Nice curve too. It compliments the flower. Love it all.

Thanks, Mark! I used the larger one yesterday and it was very nice overall! I've recently started using a clay gun for the handles so they feel better in the hand, a little more balanced with the size of the mug.

Giselle, when you say clay gun do you mean a hand held extruder? If so which one did you get and how good does it work. I have been thinking about getting one so I could extrude round coils then attach them to my pot then pull the handle from the coil. I figured it would save me a lot of time from pulling the initial handles in the beginning from the large lump of clay. It would also give me more uniform handles.

Joseph, it's a Scott Creek Super Duper clay gun or something like that. I am really liking it for handles. They're becoming much more consistent. And I like that they have a bit of their own texture. I plan to do an extruder scope soon if you go on periscope.
