Handles are like chess, simple to learn but difficult to master. An intentional handle can really elevate the most basic form. Come join me in this 2 hour hands-on workshop as I demonstrate and articulate my view points on what makes a successful handle. We'll primarily focus on pulling a handle off of the mug with an emphasis on harmony and function. 

You Will Learn:

  1. How to pull a handle off the mug.
  2. Why handles need more attention than the actual vessel.
  3. How to find balance and harmony through your handle on a difficult form.

Suggested for Workshop:

  • Leather hard mug
  • Wedged ball of clay - 1 lb
  • Scoring tool
  • Sponge
  • Water
  • Clay Journal for notes
