Alabama,

 

get a nail brush.  When your finished working with clay brush your nails with soap and water.  Small clay particles can be hiding in the small crevices around the nail and cuticle and cause the drying, cracking and tearing of cuticles that you describe. Once I started doing this my nails felt much better.

I'm pretty sure I saw some over on Digital Fire. Did you try and Google it?

Your first photo does not look over fired. But it is hard to tell from pics. I have used many of the Laguna Morroccan Sand glazes. I have found that most will be over fired at cone 6, but not all. Do a search, there are many threads here on how to even out your firing. 6 hours is really fast for a glaze firing. Was your kiln full? I found mine fires more even when totally full. Lightly loaded areas have a tendency to over fire and cool to quickly.

Clay lover,

I have read that some of the glazes from that book have been updated. I believe if you go to the Frog Pond Pottery website you can find out more information.

These are really cute. I can see why they seek well. I wish I could get organized enough to try the laser transfer.
