  1. From the album: Pottery 2016

    I love these new handles. I tried the "ruffled" pie plates but that just wasn't me. But these art deco handles make me happy!

  2. Looking through the gallery today I noticed a lot of mugs that had great potential, but such unpracticed and awful handles that the mug became rubbish. Why spend your time making a great form only to put a sloppy handle on it? Practice handles. They will set you apart. Just glance through etsy and see what I mean. If you have a great pot, but a shoddy handle, it is rubbish. However, if you have a weaker pot, but a fantastic handle, sometimes it can really work. Handles are powerful to the form of a mug and will blast you through to another level of potter. Need some help? Here are some ideas: Practice on finished cups or even smaller plastic buckets. You can pull multiple handles on a practice cup and spin it to compare the differences. Try different styles and don't become blocked or stuck in a certain way, regardless of your reason. Search Youtube for some great videos on how to make handles and get great ideas Look at online galleries to see what well-known potters do. I personally like http://www.schallergallery.com as their photos and setup are great for visual learning.
