[Clayart] Glazing the bottom of the pot

In my experience, glazed feet are just as likely to scratch a countertop as unglazed feet that have been properly finished.  I like to go over them with an abrasive flap wheel on a bench grinder or motor arbor.

In the past, I’ve glazed the feet of a piece and then put either a chunk of fire brick or a small post under the piece. The critical part is to make sure the glaze doesn’t touch the brick or post. I have Corian counter tops and don’t want the counter tops scratched. Glazed feet are a good way to avoid that.
