i am also doing a porcelain test. with 30 custer and 20 flint in the 25 25 25 25 basic porcelain . For the flint I am using Sioux quartzite because it has some nice purple Iron in it . I want to see if it crazes, or shivers the glaze off.

Seems like a good time to start a pool... I put my money on a 7.95 potassium level.
