Yes, that's what I figured. When the cups came out brittle and shattered I had no idea which ingredients/ratio of ingredients/lack of ingredients had caused it.

 

I've been learning VERY slowly from trawling digitalfire materials and google, but it's like troubleshooting into space. Hence a good textbook or two would help to focus me on what I need to know. If only I could afford to go back to school and do a formal ceramics degree!

A book I have here is: "Notes for potters in Australia vol.1. Raw materials and clay bodies"..author Ivan McMeekin   May be able to get it a t a library.

Great potter.

Babs you must be psychic! Quick go and buy a lottery ticket! I was just googling the libraries in my area for that exact reason!

If you cannot get yout hands on it, I may be able to part with mine as I have very little use for it, aging fast and not about to make my own clay body....

PM your Postal address if you want and I'll mail it.
