I may not have the corner on the market with swooping handled pitchers much longer. I've been showing people how I make them, so I dare say lots of others will be out there soon. That's ok with me.
Here are a couple of medium size thrown pitcher bodies. The 's' curves will become handles. I roll out slabs pretty thin, and cut a 1" wide strip, then a 1/2" wide strip which is adhered with slip to the first one, then they are gently curved and left over night under plastic to "set up."
I don't trim the pitchers correctly, because I don't have much bottom in them, and the lips are no longer true. So I kind of gouge out a bit of the excess clay at the bottom to thin down that area that I never can seem to throw thin.
Then the handles are gently connected to the pot with scoring and slip, and here a blob of clay holds it in the curve I want. They will sit over night again, under plastic, to begin to dry.
Just thought I'd share this technique with everyone else so lots of pretty pitchers can be all over the place. Why not?
