Joseph,
That Let's encrypt looks very interesting. It also suggested I follow Ayumi Horie and Debbie Schwartzkof
which means it knew my interests.

Either that or the outside is tougher than the inside. You can solve that by dropping a fresh bag of clay on all sides, maybe even several times. That moves the thixotropic effect of some clays. Have you ever noticed the clay has a harder spot in places. Try this and see if that doesn't help solve the problem. I just came in from throwing some older Cassius Clay. I dropped it on the floor and it softened up. easy to wedge and throw.

if the clays have gotten a little hard, slide the pugs like bread, dip each slice in bread, rebag and let them sit overnight. That will soften them for wedging and throwing as Marko suggests above.

nerd, Fred thinks you should read the crystalline glaze article in the latest PMI.
I am considering giving it a go. I think I have 20or 30 pounds of that old frit.
I will post some of my old crystalline pots. I have one in the Springfield , Illinois State Museum that was
A deep navy blue with electric blue crystals. I had a tiny vile of uranium nitrate.

lee,
the go daddy salesman said that by the end of the year Google search engine will not be recognizing non secure websites.
meanwhile, I do love the customer service on go daddy. they have always been helpful. Patient and solved the problems or helped me through processes. once I got the hang of it. Editing and updating is easy.
