In today's video, Sheila Clennell demonstrates this simple decorative "top knot" handle, a nice embellishment for a lidded form.

Adding binding cane and reed handles to pottery is a great way to spice things up if you're getting bored with your usual pulled or handbuilt clay handles. In today's pottery video, Sheila Clennell gives us a primer on working with cane and reed and demonstrates how to make a simple decorative embellishment out of cane on the handle on a lidded form. It is a great introductory project to try if you are new to working with this material. - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor
