Start with a small ball of clay. Gently press your thumb into the center and begin to pinch your way around the edges to form the shape of your mug.
Once your happy with the shape, set it to the side to slightly solidify whilst we create a handle. Roll out a coil and find the perfect shape. Be sure to smooth out any lumps and bumps as we go.
Now we need to attach your handle. You may need to allow your handle to solidify for a moment so gravity doesn't pull it from the side of your mug.
score both edges of your handle and also the section of your mug you'd like to attach your handle to.
Gently press your handle onto your mug.
For added support, you can roll two very small coils and wrap these around each end of your handle.
using your favourite blending tool or your thumb, gently blend your edges together.
Apply a small amount of water to your tool/thumb help you soften those edges.
Give your mug some much needed love. Smooth out any lumps, bumps or cracks as we don't want these to intensify when fired.
A wet sponge will help you hydrate any cracks in your clay.
Well done you! You just created your very own hug mug!
