Just fired a full bisque, switching to cone 05 from 06 and adding a 15 minute hold... The latest effort to eliminate blistering.

Pondering what I should do, if anything about lighting the signage on the studio... Solar spot lights? LED? Wired low voltage? So, many options...

    Has a good bit of tooth... Also, produces a good bit of slip, but remains rather firm while throwing. It took a lot of muscle to move it while throwing plates. The slip seems to go everywhere... I had to mop the floor twice to get rid of the red haze from the splatter. My hands looked like a corpse and had a red tint for 48 hours. My wife said my hands were so rough after only throwing a single bag. Oddly, the clay dries with a wonderful feel that made me want to play with it some more... Goi...

To hire or not to hire... That is the question...

    Sure thing... would you like that in gold ingots, or will silver bars suffice?

    A check will certainly save on shipping costs...
