Besides throwing so well, I love the very tiny specks that give it more life than just a plain white and my glazes look better on this clay than on any other that I have used ( and there were very many that I tried over the years). I make simple utilitarian pots and I am not good at drawing or painting so I like the few glazes I use to give them appeal.  Good luck with your search.  Ginny

I liked it at first but then handles would crack where they were joined, round bowls would come out oval, but the most annoying was pieces of the foot ring or flat bottom would stick to the shelf--all during the glaze firing. Did not stay with that long!  I very much like Laguna #55. I have used it often over the years and is the only one I use now.  I like using a clay that I don't have to be fussing with...but I always make sure it is very dry....the extra time is so worth it.  Ginny


In Topic: Need To Step Up Production

my work space is in my cellar and for 25 years i have been using buckets to bring water down from my kitchen and back outdoors to dump it.  i find i use very little water to throw and do not mix glazes in more than five gallon amounts. i am not a "production" potter, but do make enough for a few craft sales which clear my shelves and make room for more.  a few years ago i had a web site ready to go but after giving it much thought,   decided i would really hate taking orders and shipping.  guess i work at a different pace than many and really enjoy the customers.

best of luck in your new endeavor and remember to make that which you enjoy--i found nothing is worse than trying to make what somebody else wants....takes away all the pleasure.   sincerely ginny
