I was in Toronto once visiting my sisters. I realized that one of my sisters lives very close to Tucker Ceramic Supply in Oakville ,Ontario.[a suburb of Toronto.]
I was working in low-fire Majolica at the time, and thought I could buy an exotic Fritt at Tuckers. Long story short- I am at the airport ready to board my flight back to Winnipeg. I am holding a large bag of white powder in a zip lock bag. I mean big. Not a sandwich bag. Say 1000 grams of fritt. It suddenly dawns on me that this looks a bit hinky. I also had long hair in a pony tail, and a beard.
I went to the ticket agent. They said to go to special services. I told them what it was, and showed them my receipt. They said to check back in an hour. I was hoping that they wouldn't confiscate it, as fritts are expensive. I picked up my package an hour later-no problems.
I am sure they analyzed it. It looked like a big bag of cocaine.Anyway, my glazing was a success.I have also brought pots back in my carry-on without a problem.
Dry clay would be O.K. too.
