great idea mark.
i think the concept of `the perfect handle` would
be a good theme for the clayart room/2008.
we could do a show, open to clayarters of
pots with handles.
i would like to join you and do my `japanese perfect
replicated handles`. in other words, do a hundred mugs
and have the handles all the same. it is called measuring.
others that have unique handle ideas could join in...
chris campbell could make handles of sixty colors.
confetti handles. (god almighty, her pots make me smile.)
ron roy could demo his (as he calls them) perfect handles.
but, that would be a four hour demo.
you will have to supply us with 50 hour blunged clay, aged
for six years. but then, that is all you use anyway.
i think all we would need is a roll of butcher paper
and some plastic for the carpet.

I have always loved making handles... Not so sure of
their "perfection" but they all 'fit' my hand without
allowing the burning of my knuckles when drinking something
When demoing clay where keeping the floor clean is a must,
I use the cheapest plastic table cloths I can find. The kind
with a flannel like backing. They do not slip, are water/
clay proof and can be rolled up and washed or thrown out
