It is important to compress the bottom of the pot as you are throwing as
well. Applying this pressure can prevent the "s" shaped curves that
sometimes develop during the drying of the pot.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] wheel throwing question

Water sitting too long in the bottom of the pot will cause that. Keep
the water sponged up.

Could anyone tell me why my students wheel thrown pots will get cracks
in the bottom of their ware?
