  6. Hi all, I've had an order for some slab platters for Christmas. I know last minute shopping! So I've slabbed four already, I've been told that porcelain slabs need to dry slowly. Problem being is we're in mid summer with temps of +30 deg C, I have no storage room since I work outside. Can anyone confirm this info? If so how long should I keep them wrapped in plastic? Bearing in mind that every time I work on them they dry even more. Thanks Andread

    This one is one of my more abstract pieces. It was actually an assignment. We were supposed to create a combination of a slab piece with a wheel thrown piece. So there you have it, this is what I came up with.

  11. What is your favorite clay for slab building small projects. Grog or no grog? Porcelain? Thanks! Linda
  12. I am in search of a translucent clay body. It is my understanding that porcelain is the best (only) clay to achieve this. I am making luminaries with hard slabs. I was considering using Grolleg Kaolin and am researching Frost as an alternative. My main concern is a clay that lends itself to hard slab techniques. I'm also interested in firing at cone 10 or lower, preferably cone 6. Would firing a high fire porcelain at cone 6 affect the translucency, make it less translucent if fired lower than cone 10?
