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. :)~

    Tree pruning would win that battle in my life. Good luck with the tax, luckily my cycling business is reasonably easy.

    I think I'd like to participate. Do they plan to say, at
    3:01 our time, or 15:01 your time make a 2 lb. cup on 3,2,1? Go! Then, we are on the honor system, to make one in less than 20 minutes.

I am starting to really like slab constructed mugs...with all this practice, one might conclude that I "under-stein" the process :) *groan*

    Are you talking about the actual animal, or yourself. I guess the answer to either is, "Depends on the diet."

    Actual cavy poop! :D Read that it's full of nitrogen... bunny poop is bigger, though, and more plentiful. Pit fire stuff!
