    I think it's good inside. But can be better

I have verified this with some bowls I bought. I will post pictures later. I found this cool. The next thing i want to do is buy the saucers at home depot and drill some holes in them and have a nice thin slab pot I just thought it was cool to know.
    I use masonry bits 'dry' at slow speed, minimum pressure, and lots of patience.

    .... and for that I use a coarse grinding bit to remove the glaze and roughen up the textur.

    Sometimes you see a ceramic pot that is outstanding and you "just have to have it".
