Raku too.

I made only one raku piece early on and, for the most part, I like how it turned out but the pot is so heavy I call it my hurricane-proof pot. I have since learned to lighten the load by either pulling up more clay or trimming a foot,  or actually making a thinner bottom to start and then throwing and adding a footring separately. (That tip I got from a video clip of Douglas Fitch of A Devonshire Pottery, link's on the right) So my more recent pots are considerably lighter, but if I ever have to fend for my life, watch-out, that's the pot I'm throwing!
