Matching Handles






I don't have an extruder, so when I want to make matching handles with a vertical bead, I use my wheel. I can throw a ring large enough to cut handles for about eight mugs in the diameter of the wheelhead, or use a larger bat if I need more. After I cut the necessary length, I give it a few quick pulls to straighten the curvature that comes form being made as part of a circle, and to smooth out the slight roughness on the underside. Quick & easy, and no extruder to take apart and clean!
