In Topic: Let Me Show Off My Latest Raw Material

Jed, this is sooo cool!   I am traveling with buckets from now on!   My Colorado roadside geology book says granite on the east side (which you figured out easily) and it mentions that there was a "dark gray Pierre shale, a soft fossil bearing rock.." 


 I wonder what sort of glaze you could make with your rock?   Might be really interesting!!

Yes I do!  But then I name most things.   The kiln, the wheel, etc.   I have one glaze combo I have named Sea and Sand.   yep.

I do appreciate what Tyler is saying.   I started clay in a community studio.   While I was given a good start there....questions were not encouraged and I found that misinformation was being thrown about.   I began doing my own research and reading and exploration and realized that I loved clay/glaze more and more because there was so much to learn about it!   But there seems to be a great deal of opinion not based in fact.   I haven't noticed that on this forum, but amongst gatherings of potters.   John Baymore, Pres, Neil, Marsha, Mea, Tyler, Big Lou, have been instrumental in strongly encouraging people who ask questions on this forum, to do more research.   Spend time reading.  Attend workshops.  Know your stuff.  That makes this forum stronger and makes us all better at our craft.  But questions are very important.   That is how we learn. Even when people have had different experiences with the same glaze/kiln/clay/etc.   It is important that we share.   Once again, Thank you to all who have weighed in!!   I learn from you all!
