Good info Tim,.... thanks for sharing it with folks.  We get into this kind of stuff in my college materials classes. 


There is SO much to clay body development for more sophisticated bodies it is amazing.


Those folk potters had it easy........ find a clay deposit... figure out how to make it work for pots... ande forget the science stuff.... becasue no one is going to sue you if the glaze leaches, the pot cracks, of the color does not match the drapes on the custom order ;) .
