thrown mug handles

Sometimes I am just not in the mood to pull handles, and make thrown =
ones instead, by throwing a ring of clay just before each mug. I pay =
attention to the size, and to the symmetry. Some of them I leave whole =
and join the loop to the mug, others I cut and join in the normal way. =20

I'm sure a lot of you have experimented with this, maybe even do it =
routinely, but if you haven't, it's another approach.

I just posted pictures of my latest firing on my blog...the mug pictures =
are down a little ways.

Comments are welcome...
