  1. I have been experimenting with laminating super thin slices of colored clay patterns onto both sides of a white sheet of clay. All went well until after bisque firing ... when I rinsed them in water small confetti shaped pieces popped off with enough force to travel a couple feet away. Woke me up! Glazed and fired them to Cone 7 and washed them again using a little more caution ... and a couple more zinged off. Needless to say, none of the work is for sale ... ... my prime suspect here is very tiny air pockets since the pieces were dry enough to fire for a couple weeks just waiting indoors for a kiln load. But ... there were no visible air pockets while in process. I might need to try slip between the color and the white to fill those little gaps. Any other ideas?
