I'm a little late gettng in on this discussion but here is my hint for =
supporting handles and other loopy pot additions.
Try making a sling from damp newspaper to support it in the right curve.
Dip a strip of newspaper in the throwing water so it has a little =
clayon it to hold it to the wet pot.Standing behind the handle, gripping =
eachend of the strip use it to push the curve up and into the right =
shape . Thenwrap the ends onto the pot at an angle that holds the shape. =
The paper will
stick until it drys then fall away without marking the pot.
