500 lbs of technical grade air floated kaoilin is on it's way. Hectorite on it's way. Let the ultra translucent porcelain begin.

Ordered 50lbs of commercial grade-refined hectorite today. This is calcium based in lieu of sodium based. According to specs it should be similar to V-gum T: this should be interesting.
Stopped at a lighting store yesterday and picked up a variety of pendant light shades. Mold time for highly translucent crystalline glazed shades.
Just read the most directly applicable journal of clay platelet charges in relation to surface area: filled in the remaining blanks I had. I am a happy man.

Terri: when I did not see cation exchange, EF-FF-EE alignment discussed: pretty much knew it was blather.

70 in mid Febuary. So for the first time in many years during winter- I am going to glaze fire tomorrow.

I think it is weird science day. I have had these ideas for oddity glazes rolling around in my head for a month now. Good day to test them.

I have not updated since last year!
Mt favorite part of Christmas. Only one stirring is me. Got two of my first thrown pieces in the kiln: waiting to see how they turned out. Merry Christmas.

My brain hurts. Think I fried some synapses.

I am off until Monday for Thanksgiving. Loaded my 16CF with all the thrown items to be bisq'ed. Threw the breaker- no power! Neighbors pole barn runs off my transformer, they shut it off this morning so he could unprade his power. It is raining, so I guess I will post in the forums all day!
