Firstly, I mark all the pots before starting to facet the sides. To be able to replicate the cuts from piece to piece I use a wooden bat as a marker to divide up the sections, with a guide to mark the cutting height. A round cap marks the arch before I can start the facets.
The pots need to be thrown thicker at the base and in a conical style so when cutting the sides, I don't go through the pot.
The first attempt at this style I applied the handle from near the rim and kept it quite tight to the pot but it didn't look quite right.
I've started to pull the handles from just above the middle of the mug with the shape being sprung quite high giving a more classic, generous shape.
Handles I think are the most difficult, not the pulling or application, that does take time but comes relatively quickly with repetitive practice. The shape and consistency take a while to grasp but it's finding the right shape to suit the ware paying particular attention to the negative space.
