  1. Hi Shawnhar, yes one piece. I do the flair collaring the clay with the fingers of my left hand and little finger and thumb from my right hand while using my right index and right middle finger to throw the rim flair all at the same time. It’s a little tricky until you get the feel, but the technique works really well making closed forms.

  8. I don't want to pick on BCS anymore I've had my say and given fair warning to those interested. I will comment on one of your points.

  12. Hi Neil, Great you have had good luck shopping with them, it seems many have not and my BCS experience matched exactly the negative reviews. It's taken me years to adapt, I now because the big box stores and economic trends in general have made it difficult not to do so shop online frequently and I seldom if ever have this problem without some previous disclaimer. Also, answering the phone/email and returning messages when you can't deliver is kind of basic good customer service and they dont score great in that arena, can't even leave them a message.
