    Very nice. I was going to ask what kind of clay you were using, but I forgot, you have your own "Brand"...

    Actually this one laguna 900
    One of the few I buy, and performs superb in wood fire plain, and the first high fire shino I tested
    . Yes all those were right it is hard work making clay.

    I have no doubt it is. I'll leave the clay mixing up to someone else. Reclaiming is as close as I want to get...

    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
