Tonight I finished adding handles to the first batch of new mugs.
Generally I keep the mugs with freshly attached handles under wraps
overnight before leaving them out to dry. In my mind, it helps keep the handles
“happy” by allowing the moisture levels to balance out between the drier cup
and the wetter handle. After they “even out” overnight, then I can open them up,
add a few slip details, and then let them dry fully… with happy handles!
