I made some handles to hang some teapots on. I think Dan Finnegan was present in my workshop as he made me put little eyes on the back of one of my handle columns
which made it look like a gargoyle or some kind of weird animal. Dan beats me hands down in that arm wrestle. If ya think I started making really ugly knobs that is just a piece of clay supporting the arch of the handle. I put them together pretty soft so I had to offer some support. I troweled on some thick slip that I had hanging around. This was a slip my student Jordan Scott made for me 70% ball clay and 30% molochite. He used 25 mesh molochite so it is rather nasty for brushing but you can trowel it on with your hand up to an inch thick and it doesn't crack.
