Did the mugs S crack go all the way though the mug so it leaked or was the
mug broken differntly [hair line crack down the side or broken handle} ? If
the S crack did not cause a leak when filled it was more an imperfection than
fatal flaw and it shoud have been reflected in the price Dave

If the s-crack was deep, and the walls were thin, it sounds as though the
bottom of the mug was probably too thick for the rest of it. This may have
been the cause of the s-crack.
I don't get them much any more, and if I do, they generally go all the way
through. I do hate to throw out a mug with a bit of an s-crack which doesn't
impair its usefulness, though. Which is why there are so many mugs in my
house we can hardly climb out of the kitchen.
At any rate, I'll bet that potter didn't see the crack. If you have his
address, I expect he'd be happy to send you a replacement. I doubt he'd ask
you to return the one you bought--too much hassle for nothing.

A crack in a pot doesn't need a definition, it needs a HAMMER.
