Packing for a show I suspected a crack in a bowl and in my mind tossed it=
, I
was in a hurry. but i felt compelled to find the crack. tapped it, tapped=
some more. I knew it was there but could not figure where. some times if =
pull on the bowl you can hear the crack, resisting the impulse again to
trash it i pulled and pulled until it snapped and nearly cleaved off the =
of my index finger. so I had to finish packing and do the show with my
finger wrapped in a bloody bandage. I had to lay off throwing for a while=

If it does not ring toss it.
