What ever clay stings the most, when it hits somebody. Probably a high grog body. Those extra bits are like rocks in a snowball.

I'm make a few items, for a benefit next week.  A graduate, from just this past year, has cancer.  I knew him fairly well, so it's my pleasure to help out anyway I can.

A Science teacher I worked with, brought me in some from her property.  It was a blue green body, that fired golden yellow.  I had to slaked it down, and screen it, to remove the large rocks and such.

 

I only fired to Cone 04.  I had a classmate in college, bring in a similar clay.  The instructor let her fire it, in a dish, which was a good call, as it melted at around Cone 6.
