Well, here are the pieces I made for class on Saturday to show the students. I put a few types of lugs on a couple of the tall cylinders, and made a few different types of handles for a set of mugs.
It was a really fun class to teach because it gets the students to take a quick break from the wheel and work on adding those finishing touches to the piece. Plus, they get to make something that feels very usable – a nice set of mugs. I demonstrated four types of handles – which was good for me because I don’t use all of them very often. I look forward to the next class because it is their final work day before they spend the last class glazing everything.
I am planning on posting some student work once it comes out of the kiln. Check back in a couple weeks for photos!
