A lot of juried shows in my area do allow slip cast wares, as long as you designed the mold yourself, and high fired porcelain, bone china, stoneware, all types of clay are used.

Doesn't this boil down to how much clay you use, if you're production potter and need tons at a time, than mixing your own is probably not the way to go, but a few hundred pounds at a time of your own clay body, not a big deal. Also if you mix your own clay, your able to mix it into a slip like Joseph is doing, it's a good way to go for quality clay. I have some of my own specialty clay bodies that have to mixed into a slip first.


As far as the dust hazard and my non expert opinion, if you mix up your own glazes as a lot of potters do, I would think you would be set up to handle at least smaller batches of clay.
