Was doing a forum search on rare eath oxides such as Yttrium, Holium, and Samarium: wonder why these never came up in topics before?

    I refer to them as oxides because most usually do; they are actually lanthanides.

    Interesting- had to google it. The oxide is used in glass and it is an interesting read.

just received my newest book on Medieval pottery. I think the entire name is "A Dated Type-Series of London Medieval Pottery, Part 4: Surrey Whitewares" 1988. Its full of pictures, illustrations, and archaeological data. The last ten minutes have been great!!

    Yes, this book seems to rank up there with copies of my Tunica Treasure, German Stoneware: 1200-1900, & Pre-Industrial Utensils. The Surrey Whiteware book has decoration examples of trailing, incising, punctuation, sprigging, and modeling. This is about the 7th pottery book in the last couple of months!

    Can we buy this too in Europe? What would be an equivalent?

    I can't say Evelyne. I notice that each porcelain has its own response to crackling surfaces. You'd have to experiment.

    I couldn't get on either, I even e-mailed Joseph to see if he could get on. CMF accidently locked me out one time, so I was just checking I wasn't the only one.

My "mixed mess" single fire came out beautifully! And the few pieces that did not do so well taught me what I needed to know.

    I always learn the most from my mistakes. The stuff that goes right I get so happy I forget what I did right! Glad you learned so much and got good results at the same time.

    Went shopping today and I felt like I was grilled. If you like grilling and being grilled approximately 8 to 10 months a years, then South Texas is the place to be. It doesn't get cold for long here.

The weatherman's muggy meter is up there this week. I'd really like to do some firings but it is too hot. Now working on obligations to requests.
