Handle Making Video: How to Make Custom Cane Handles for Teapots

|Most pottery supply stores carry a selection of cane handles for teapots. Those can be lovely, but, of course, these store-bought handles are not one of a kind. If you want to go completely one of a kind, you can make your own cane handles using binding cane and reed (available at craft stores). Sheila Clennell of Sour Cherry Pottery is an expert this subject and, a while back, we shared her primer on working with cane.
In today’s video clip, Sheila demonstrates a more complicated cane handle project: how to make what she calls her “Front Spray” style handle for a teapot. Have a look and then think about tweaks you can make to make it your own. The possibilities are endless! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
