Hey Liz. You shouldn't mention the tidy rim it just makes me want to undulate them even more. I must admit you do have to pay attention to the cup when drinking from it. Pick a low spot or you could wear some bourbon on your shirt. Yes, it is another way I force you to look at the cup.
For decades I trimmed what I call an Asian foot which references the nod on a stalk of bamboo. With a switch to e-ware I look to it with more of a European foot. I exaggerate the foot. This is also a lazy man's way of trimming. Just push the excess clay down with a sharp rib to form the foot. The courtyard in front of the workshop is starting to look nice.
