    We could use some of that rain, not a drop in almost 3 weeks. Hitting high 90's everyday does not help.

    Sorry to hear that, their lives are so short comparatively, and we miss them so much when they go.

    I dumped into my college art teacher about a month ago. She's a fabulous painter and when I told her about ceramics she sounded excited and plans on coming over by the end of the month.

getting finished up on a commission, and getting some work fired and new ideas developing in the studio. Planning on working on Color development for my foil sagar firings. Material is at the post office for building my big raku kiln. Need to make bigger pieces for my galleries.

    I am afraid if I use porcelain I would accidentally put in my puugger with stoneware. And that would be very very bad or very very good, LOL.
    What porcelain do you use?

    I am using Bray porcelain ^6 for glazed ware. For saggar firings I use Coleman, Babu, Nara. I have Nara for ^5 and ^10. I have some black clay I want to experiment with and I have some of Nerd's ^6 porcelain cream cheese. I mix my own raku clay but got some Piepenberg raku from a friend here. Too many types, but I do a lot of different tye firing.

    that is a good idea. I was working on cleaning and moving things to the storage area in the kiln shed. Always something needs to be done. Got some cinderblocks today for the base of my raku kiln and figured out partial weatherproofing for it.

    Thinking the digital X-rays may be good enough. I had a ganglia cyst removed in '79 and back then there were no MRIs . I see the doctor in 2 weeks.
