My first question to you is ... What are those lumps and discolored pieces that show up in your images? Have you mixed something into your clay?

To make ordinary flat pieces you can just slice pieces of the clay and roll them flat between two rulers or boards. Cut to size. Slide them sideways onto a board to dry ... do not touch them at all until they stiffen up. Again ... Do Not Touch Them until they are stiff.

Terra cotta is usually a very forgiving clay that should be quite friendly to work with. Good luck!

Most embarrassing ....

My bowls are all porous so I thought to myself "What if I glazed the insides? Then the bottoms would not leak!"

Really, I thought that and I did it.

> I am an MD. When I was in medical school and residency, we always were taught several ways to approach a problem. One never knew what one would find and a it was essential to have a good knowledge of several techniques. My teacher disappointed me when she threw up her hands and said, "I just can't help you,".

My daughter is an MD and when I mention symptoms she says ... Did you do this? ... No .... Would you try this? ... No ... Then she throws up her hands and says ..."well, I got nothing for you!"

Roku ... Old series, old movies, old stuff I hear but do not have to pay attention to because I have seen them before or just don't really care what is happening ... It seems to let my brain wander.
