Alternative to horsehair

I've been looking at some alternatives to the horsehair technique as the percentage of pots that don't make it through the process is too high (currently +40%!!!). Melting copper wire on to pots is something I looked at in my Foundation Diploma and something that I have wanted to revisit for a long time. So these pictures are the experiments so far.........
