    Bite your tongue! ;) I freely admit that throwing porcelain is a skill I do not yet have.

Why is it so hard to find a direction...

    Welp. I think I might have found a temporary direction for a while. I just unloaded one of the best pots in my short career. Pictures coming soon. I also figured out how to layer my white so that it wouldn't be so boring. But I will have to do a ton of testing before that is ready to be used on actual pots. This black iron rich glaze is so darn beautiful.

    The problem with going in a direction is you never have consistent stock xD

    I think I am going to go for it and just see what I can do with these 3 glazes. Of course I will satisfy my testing hunger with my yunomis as they are a wonderful place to explore form and surface. Can it be true? Will I stick to it? I highly doubt it. HBP is always right.

    I never had any of my dogs destroy any thing. But they would snarf down any little piece of clay I dropped. Denice

    I have a border terrier who stays in my garage when I throw. She doesn't bother anything, but I have to deter her from trying to drink glazes. I made a yunomi for her that she drinks out of now.

    Joseph: It will be over a month before I get done testing various parameters. I work with a five clay blend recipe.

    Hmm, maybe a business opportunity for potters to make chamber pots for those denied bathroom usage, LOL but really not funny

Anyone have dreams about ceramics? I had one last night where I was trying to raku a complex piece and all these other people showed up and were building makeshift raku kilns out of inappropriate materials and causing great danger and making a huge mess. Makes me grateful for our safe and simple set up.

    Except it rained today! So I am throwing 3# bowls all day. I forget how much I enjoy throwing bowls. Something so simple that is so complex to get a beautiful inside and outside curve. Plus all the different profiles. So enjoyable. Kiln at 650F. MUST RESIST.
