  1. Thank you. I enjoyed looking at your beautiful work on you r website. Are the mugs done with the slip decoration? They are so pretty.
  2. Can we just fire them to cone 6 and skip the bisque since we are not going to glace them?
  3. My adult grandson wants to make some planter pots and we were wondering if we should use terracotta clay or if we could use some of the clay I already have that fires to cone 6.

  10. I have several meat grinders and will just keep the one I used for the clay with my clay stuff. This old grinder is an old fashioned. I think iron, that is older than I am and was my mother's and probably her mother's. LOL.
  11. The other day I was grinding up some left over pot roast to make hash and got to thinking about reclaiming the many pieces of dried up clay and then the light went on. Why not grind up the broken pieces using my old fashioned hand crank meat grinder that I was using to recycle the pot roast and make tiny pieces of bone dry clay. So the next day I ground up some of the clay and soaked it up with some water and let it soak over night and then I dumped it out on a slab of plaster I made to dry clay on and in a couple of hours on the plaster slab the reclaimed clay was ready to be wedged.
