Had a week solo as my husband went to a Physics conference at the Aspen Center for Physics. I had a few issues with technical things around the house but all is well now and he is back home.

I have that uneasy feeling that I accidentally added 2x the amount of Bentonite to a 5 gal mix of Ohio White...And I won't know the exact effect until I test it. Pooh!

I've already fired kilns 3 times this year. Usually bisque twice and glaze twice per year and that's it. I'm cranking stuff out this year!'.

    I will feel more magical when I get the results out of the kiln later this upcoming week. I will fire it tomorrow. I think one of them is a bit too thick. So only time will tell. But it was easier than I thought it was to mix the stuff together, at least a test batch of 400G.

I was looking at some pit fired pots, and saw how glossy some of them were--like lacquer. Would that have just been burnished/sig, or do you think something shiny was added? SUPER gloss.

    if you want yours shiny, ill take em to the wood shop and spray 3 coats of laquer on em, buff them out with a high speed buffer and those babies will blind a guinea potter. :)~
