Have you ever wanted to make your own handles? Sometimes we feel that shop-bought handles don’t quite have the character that we want for our pots. Join Danish potter Anne Mette Hjortshøj at her studio on the tiny island of Bornholm as she shows us how to make a simple handle from wisteria.
Anne Mette shows us how to prepare the material and how she makes handles for her little teapots. She discusses the importance of balance, proportion and function and talks about the importance of repetition in order to train the eye. She also explains how she looks at all the different elements of the teapots themselves in order to refine her designs.
