Chris; Take a look at page 16 of the latest Ceramics Monthly ( Jan 2014). picture #2 looks like a crude version of some of the things you are doing.

 

P.S to Norm...

Feynman said that anyone who said they understood quantum mechanics was lying,so I don't feel so bad about not understanding the underlying math.  Anyway, thankfully the process of breaking symmetry might end up pretty bad for the cat, It can be very good in ceramics.

Yes, another one! What do you call someone who copies your work before you even get the idea?
"Annoying"

Don't be annoyed . . . have you considered the possibility that these pots you are seeing are actually pots made in the future -- by potters influenced by your current and yet to be produced work -- and which have been transported back to the current time by quantum leapers travelling through gaps in the time-space continuum?

Charles Darwin & Alfred Russel Wallace came up with the idea of natural selection at about the same time. Leibniz and Newton both came up with "calculus" in the same time frame .  Many times good ideas have been hit upon by more than one person working in isolation. If ideas are new to you then they are "new" even if others have tried them.  You are an original Chris no doubt about it.

Good company to be in Bob!

It does make you wonder about the power generated by ideas and how they travel.
