Throwing pots

I’ve been throwing pots on a wheel for a while now but this year I’ve started throwing with porcelain.  It was challenging at first – it felt like I was learning to throw all over again – because porcelain is much more elastic than the clay I’d been using before.  But now that I’ve figured it out, this elasticity is an advantage.  I’ve been using it to create thin, fluted rims on my pots – pushing the delicate edges as far as I dare.  I like the effect, what do you think?
