I bisqued/calcined, come custer chips, in order to make smaller bits for inclusion in clay body for woodfire.
In an attempt to make a shigariki like clay.

There are some dirty bits in the feldspar chips

Some of these bits melted/ sintered at bisque temp, melting to a porcelain bowl

What are these dirty bits?
how do remove these dark bits?

I imagined the feldspar chips would have been cleaner.

Tumbler/ Ball Mill

I have some feldspar chips and granite, that is a bit large for inclusions in clay. I need smaller bits. I'm thinking a ball mill/tumbler to make easy work of this. What media in tumbler/mill should I use?

Only what is alumina. That is how bag is labeled. I'm guessing I had wrong one
