  1. Falls Creek Shino

    #2: Exactly. I'm pretty sure it's 266 in slip form but I may be forgetting the exact clay #3 It loves texture! It breaks on anything (lettering, throwing lines) but it sometimes has to be more of a severe texture like the mug to get it to break with two glazes, depending on the combination (test!). And yes, it plays well with almost all of our glazes except for the really funky ones that don't like to play well with others. #1 I only use 266 on rare occasions. I don't worry much about it wet but am super cautious doing anything that might create dust with it.
  2. Falls Creek Shino

    I know the falls creek shino really, really well. It's one of the favorite glazes my studio works with, and I've used it myself hundreds of times. It's the clay body that (mainly) causes the color change. It's always creamy/oatmeally on white clays. On anything darker, it's great. The first picture is using a really dark clay (Standard's 266), the second is using a porcelain with a dark slip decoration, and the last is Standard's Hazelnut clay (312, I think) with a green glaze over the top. All the pieces have the same thickness of glaze. On the darker clays, a thicker application can lighten up the glaze, but it always is creamy on the white clays no matter how thin of a coat you apply. Hope this helped some, Deborah

  9. White Clay Body Advice

    I'm a huge fan of Standard's 551 porcelain. It's really white, throws well, and doesn't seem to be particularly prone to warping. It's happy to be thrown thin, tall, collars in well, and doesn't collapse easily like when you're making large wide bowls. I've colored it with mason stains which also worked. It's a bit more expensive than highwater's little loafers which I've also used and liked. The two of them are almost identical in terms of whiteness at all stages. I prefer 551 for throwing (by just a tiny bit), but the cost difference may not be worth it for you. Hope this helped some. Deborah
