Hey Bob,
If you put the handle on the mug as soon as you can so that you can
"blend" the handle+mug body clay like the handle "grew" there DO NOT
USE SLIP!! That makes the joint much wetter than the handle or the
body and thus the joint breaks, as the handle and the body dry faster
than the joint... May I suggest you look at the mug sequence on the
Pottery page of my web site...
