I can't say exactly where I have been hiding, but my Mayan is certainly getting better :)

    That has been one long process. Glad it's coming to an end for you so you can focus on what you love instead of moving boxes!

    I read your post and it reminded me of many funny comments from my 50+ years in Clay. From the staff at Studio Potter decades ago, How did you get started in Clay? ANS. Jewelry class was full. Good to hear stories from others in clay. Good to ear yours. I add a link to my post with photos of the early potters wheel in action, the granite kiln the pots were fired in plus a finished pot.

    Thanks but luck is not in the equation-I have tons of stock and the weather is great and I have a25 year history at The UC Davis whole Earth festival-it will be epic.

So far I am really liking 75-104 utility porcelain. I formulated it to a specific set of limits in lieu of clay varieties. I can nearly pull up a bowl almost perfectly on the first pull. I pulled up a 4" x 10" cylinder with only one pound of clay. Think I will pug out 25 lbs here shortly, interesting properties indeed.

    I will be sending out a few trial samples in another two months or so. Currently running shrinkage and absorption tests. Shrinkage at bone dry green ware was only 3 percent.

    Ha ha. I wish I could slow down. Tomorrow four projects on the house we're selling in TX. replace cracked tiles, fixed garage door opener, and spackle nail holes and paint, and replace a section of broken pipe on the sprinkler system. Hoping to start back to Montana Thursday.

    As long as you have the space to store the finished pieces I'd say go for it. If it works do it again next year.

    Good luck.

Arrived in Red Lodge after driving a uhaul and pulling a trailer 1820 miles due North. happily here in Red Lodge. Unloaded the van Wed. and the truck yesterday. Sorting out things. Sat. I am flying back to Brownsville and touching up nail holes and returning with Matt and the dogs in his Mini. Should be a much faster trip. Glad we made it.
