Chantay, I'll check out John Britt. Can't believe I hadn't already thought to check out YouTube! Maybe I'll find some other "standers" out there.
CarlCravens, thanks for the information about the mirror. Sounds like a great idea! I agree--it's a tool, not a crutch. I don't understand the attitude of some potters; it's a sore spot for me. If a mirror is a crutch, then a potter's wheel is total cheating! It's not a crutch to use every available technology. Likewise, there's nothing wrong with going back to pinch pots and wood firing. Let's all respect each other's choices!
