foot size on vessels

John Lucas
>I've photographed probaly 200 ceramic and glass vessels in the last month and I've noticed that the ceramic vessels almost always have a larger foot that we turners put on our pieces. The glass pieces probably more closely resemble the foot sizes that turners use. I thought it might be fun to discuss this again. I know it's been hashed around and thier isn't really a right or wrong. I think large feet look bad on some vessels and small feet don't work on funcional pieces. What do you all use as a criteria for the right foot size for your pieces.
