Okay. Long ago I stopped using lugs to hold my pots down to the wheel when trimming. Just some water and I'm good to go. Once in a while the water looses its seal and a mug can go flying. TIP: if you keep one hand on the bottom of the pot you are trimming you can more easily rescue the flying pot. Put it back on the wheel and keep trimming. Just saying. #nicesave #trimming #corisandlerpotteryvideos
