BAND Band refers to lines marked round circular ceramic utensils, plates, jars or lids using any method, such as painting, drawing, scratching etc. It can be done at all stages: freshly thrown work, leather dry, bisque, unfired glaze-base, as well as on a glazed surface.

BANDING BARS 1. Banding with a bar: there are two ways to do this and for both you need a hand wheel, which has different sized circumferences marked on it; this makes cantering the pieces easier. A strong metal bar, high enough to decorate the largest pieces, is clamped tightly to the edge of a table, so it does not move with the pressure of working. This is to support your hand while drawing or painting lines round jars, plates or lids. When banding on top of an object, like a plate or a lid, you should stand, and when working round the object, one can sit or stand. I have never been able to buy the bars, I have always had to have them made. Hold the bar with your little finger and the brush between your thumb and first finger. See below for the working process as applied to a banding pole and binding bridge. susan
