Tips for making efficient handles using Relyef Handle forms

First, prepare a vessel on which you would like to put the handle. There are several ways you can do that:

1. Handbuild vessel 

 2. Wheel-thrown vessel


3. An extruded vessel using the Rélyéf Extruder Hollow Dies for the Nidec Shimpo EX 115 press.





Once the container is at the leather-hard stage handle can be attached.

It is wise to choose a suitable Rélyéf Handle Form with the ruler in your hand as the Handle form represents the inside shape of the finished handle. 

  • Even though it takes a bit of time to get used to working with the Handle form, using it ensures clean lines and consistency when making sets. 
  • The Handle form holds the fresh-clay handle securely while attaching it to your vessel.
  • The joints can be later reinforced, remodeled, and cleaned. The Handle form is removed to the sides after the handle is finished and settles almost to the leather-hard stage.
