Pottery - So Many Steps! Finishing Casseroles

Making a pot takes many steps.  Most people think of someone sitting at a potter's wheel throwing or turning a piece of clay.  That is only one step of many - the most photogenic and dramatic part of forming a pot.

Of course there is mixing and wedging clay before sitting at the wheel.  And After forming a pot there are more steps before the pot is fired.  When Ken makes casseroles, there is not only throwing bottom and lid, but also trimming bottom and lid

And then after fitting lids, there are handles on the bottom 

and a handle on the top

And at some point I always say, "Keppers, Get a handle on it!"
