Slabbed Mugs

For the salt kiln. Much more time-consuming than wheel-thrown mugs,but I can't get such deep or even texture on the wheel. I cut the slabs [on one side] with a stretched spring,join edges in a rough cylinder,stick it onto a slab base,then throw [from the inside] a bit on the wheel,tidy up the lip and stick on a handle. And a thumb-stop,which helps one grip a larger [and heavier] mug,and is fun to do.
