Yet again; I did something, yesterday, that I have wanted to do for a long time. I threw some mugs and when I took them off of the wheel I squished the bottoms. A friend once told me about an antique Chinese pot that was so wet when they glazed it that the bottom where they held it in the glaze bucket was distorted and you could see the finger marks of the glazer. I always like spontanious marks left by the tools and hands. Most Americans are sort of anal about craftsmanship. I think I was a Korean potter in a previous life. Does every one want to go to the AAA meet and greet with me?
