A Simple Handle Pulling Technique to Dress Up Your Pottery


Over the past couple of years, I have been on an ongoing quest to make the perfect handles for my pottery. I have tried a million different techniques, and I am getting closer, but I am still not completely satisfied with my handles.

But, onward and upward (hopefully) I will go, and today’s video provides some more inspiration. In this clip from Intermediate Wheel Throwing, Jen Allen shares a super fun technique for adding a little more interest and detail to a pulled handle. Enjoy! – Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor.
