What do ya'll think? If I fire earthenware and stoneware both to ^06 which will be most durable?
I want to burnish the piece, bisque fire it then smoke it in a metal can, which of these, earthenware or stoneware,
will take the smoke better?
I am intested in this question as well. I plan to make a coil bowl out of a red clay--an earthenware clay-- with mica in it in the Native American tradition. An article I read said to burnish, then fire to ^ 08, then place in a wood fire for the smoke effect. Has anyone had fun with this?
