    Has a good bit of tooth... Also, produces a good bit of slip, but remains rather firm while throwing. It took a lot of muscle to move it while throwing plates. The slip seems to go everywhere... I had to mop the floor twice to get rid of the red haze from the splatter. My hands looked like a corpse and had a red tint for 48 hours. My wife said my hands were so rough after only throwing a single bag. Oddly, the clay dries with a wonderful feel that made me want to play with it some more... Goi...

    The epk based clay is grey brown wet, but very white when dry. Less plastic than I expected, more meticulous pinch pots. But doable. Porcelain (ish) clay can be finicky. Wood fire next month
    Which is what clay is designed for.

You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose but you can't pick your friends nose...apparently

    it's much less satisfying picking a friends nose than your own.....you don't really pick friends......the ones that tolerate you just hang around longer....

    I hope it's going well with your dad, my mother-inlaw is 90 and she can get pretty feisty. Her car has been in the shop and I have been driving her every where. She's a good driver, isn't use to being stuck at home and is getting a little frustrated. Denice

    Sure thing... would you like that in gold ingots, or will silver bars suffice?

    it's actually part of an opening line to one of my favorite books "When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman, and a ride home." so when I see the little thingy that says what's on your mind I am reminded....
