Techniques -- Preventing "S" Crack When Throwing off the Hump
The title is a little bit of a misnomer. This video is more about just preventing "S" crack in pots thrown off the hump. I wanted to share this because of the measurement technique shown. Many of us have trimmed through the bottom of a pot. The tapping technique works for some but it takes years of experience to know that the "thunk thunk thunk" to mean a certain thickness and it's a guess at best. This method is sort of scientific and you can just measure the depth of your foot ring to know if you've hit your mark. Enjoy the demo and leave your feedback in the comment section.
