How To: Put handles on your ceramics

Put handles on your ceramics

Simon Leach teaches us how to put handles on your ceramics in this tutorial. The key thing is to never let the handle fall as you are adding it to a cup, always keep it supported. Look at the handle as you are placing it on and think about proportion and size. If it's sticking out too far it's going to get knocked off. You need to have an elliptical shaped handle when you are shaping them so they can be gripped properly. Don't score the bottom part when you are joining the handle to the bottom of the pot. It's good to score with your fingernail to create the slip for the top of the ceramic. Once finished, you will be ready to glaze and fire!
