    Well, you can pull several long, consistently thick handles, and then cut them into small sections to fit on the smaller wares. I guess it all depends on whether not you are keeping them, in which case your desired vessel-type will dictate the need for a handle. Or, if they will just be recycled, in which case get some handle practice, while you can.

Frustrated was unable to trim yesterday's practice. I need to remind myself porcelain is quirky. I you can't rush poreclain. It took substandard trimming on a few pieces before I realized. Then it took me way to long to switch gears and be productive. :(

    There are a lot of metrosexual men out there who are as high maintenance as porcelain! : )

    I switch all the time between porcelain and stoneware. It's easier on my back to use porcelain. But I love making stoneware mugs and bowls.

    Any sort of clay in the Spring time can be quirky as you never know if the moisture level in the air is going to slow or speed drying. Spring is the thing, not the clay

    Spring is here! Nice examples Biglou. I think I will glaze some slabs. The sun finally came out today.

    Of course, we dare not call this 'fun' or 'playing with fire'...but as Ben says, "it's addictive".

Wedged about 70 pounds of clay today, if I'm to continue to make my own clay I think I'll need a pugmill, and a mixer

    Almost worth it to drive twelve hours....
    I will say though, the Walker is not de-airing.

    I'll need a truck to move it. Not only is it large but I'm sure it's heavy
