I remember seeing a potter with parkinsons and when making pottery their tremors stopped. I think pottery is good for the brain. It is good for my brain.

Bisque or over fired should still have that glassy ring to it because it has been taken through the ceramic change. If there is a dull thud then maybe you need to refire.


A good look at the clay compared to greenware and the final fired look should also be an easy comparison to which one it looks closer to.


I had some bisque that went a nice blue where stacked inside each other but still overfired I think than underfired.

I think they went over bisque and are closer to looking like the final fired body temp. At least this is what I have found in the same situation. The thickness keeps in heat and over fired itself.


Does it sound dull or do they ring?

Interesting, so it is kind of a frit made from melted ash?


Found some chemistry. http://www.optaminer...-Coal-Slag.html Is it cheaper than standard rocks?

If it is the only Dan I know of pottery wise on youtube he has two hands :D although his dad/relation has lost a hand and throws. I bet his wheel is old, it only has three speeds. Not sure of the make.


Try and get some help to move the wheel, I have been moving mine around solo and it gets tough. Easy for two.
