When do you put the slip on, when they are still leather hard ?
I had thought about an oxide stain, but that is still a sort of brown color.

Hey, Pres, let's have coffee together here tomorrow! I'll be here about 7:30, and you can recognize me by the Suzy Lindsay mug, or my other favorite, the Sara Roland. :-) Or maybe the Frank Massarella, with that little raspberry spot on one side!.

Clay is a mixture of 3 different types of stoneware. combination of thrown and hand built, not thick or heavy, no student work in this load.  I don't have any problems with the schedule I am using, no pinholes or glaze dipping problems .   I pack the bisque pretty tight, but only stack bowls and such 3 deep.  I'm afraid of cracking the ones on the bottom of a deeper stack.

The program I use was giving to me by a really cautious teacher and it work for me, but I am wondering if it is all necessary.

Do you tell her she was buying child proof pottery?  


I didn't think so.
