To be honest I'm not sure since this was several months ago. I will mention that the bowls were of reasonable thickness- a thickness that would have faired fine I'm certain using other glazes in our community studio (I.e. Not my own studio, I'm not firing the kiln). Also, our studio manager put some on a just half of a cup, and you could see just that part being squeezed when it came out of the kiln

You're right of course. The extent of what I know is: Glazing inside and out and firing to cone 10 in strong reduction in a gas kiln. Stoneware is a medium grogged ironous body with approx 15% shrknkage, and an English porcelain that shrinks 20ish percent. Ash is from a wood fired pizza place. Not certain of the wood

Agreeing with you that censoring '######' is crazy. Can an administrator look into this? I'm surprised, frankly, that the board is censored at all. Anyway, I think Grayson Perry might be of interest to you. A brief search also brings up this: http://extremecraft....tterys-gay.html, which talks about Eric Scollon, though I'm not personally familiar with his work.
