I enjoyed throwing 6 mugs, trying some stamping on them, and had pulled the handles too. But when I tried to take them home in the car, they all (the mugs being very soft still) all fell over and got bent out of shape.

time to recycle. I always cut thrown things in half to see how my walls are progressing. These were pretty sad. Still too thick at the bottom sides.
A bucket of worms? No, the handles which are too dry to try to use on the next batch.
