Hi! Quick question for you. I noticed on a post that you mentioned having worked with Standard 365 porcelain, and I'm wondering if you have any experience with 551? Also, how foolhardy would I be to go from stoneware to porcelain? ;) Thanks for your thoughts! (I can give you my email address if that's easier for you.)

    I have not used 551. I have tried a couple of their other porcelain like bodies, though, and was not impressed. Their 365 throws beautifully, so I don't feel like theirs any reason to go to a white body that is supposedly more plastic. I do 45 pound planters with it with the 365 with no cracking or warping problems. The transition from stoneware to porcelain can be awkward, but you'll get used to it. Any particular reason you want to switch?

AND doing some hand building and needed the slab to harden a little and put it on some canvas on the floor and it dried just like that... this is a whole new wonderful space that I never thought about before!

I just wedged my clay. I dumped the water off my reclaim, spread it on a big cloth and put it on my basement floor. Moved it a couple of times and it was perfect for wedging today and I want to thank you. It peeled off the material like magic. Thank you, thank you.

NEIL;I made this small rimmed bowls out of porcelain, with the idea of putting a round candle in for Christmas.Before I waxed the foot, I brushed Alumina on, to avoid "plucking", as you suggested. No plucking, so thank-you for the suggestion.Tom Roberts

    Hey Neil,

    I met you at the Uptown Art fair this past weekend. My name is Phill and I came by with my baby boy Pax. Good meeting you in person!

Neil;I keep looking at that luscious yellow glaze on your teapot. Is your colourant rutile? Are you firing oxidation?Can we maybe trade a recipe or two?Tom Roberts[TJR]
