  1. @glazenerd I use a local South African white midrange stoneware clay which fires to cone 6. It is extremely short and I read that adding a 50/50 ball clay to bentonite mix will improve the plasticity. They recommend to add 50g to a kilogram of clay. Will this influence the cone my clay fires to? At first I thought it was short because it was freshly made, but I'm 6 months down the line and it's still short. It even cracks when I wedge and it's not dry. I think it might have neph sye in it because if I wedge normally it cracks like crazy, but when I stack and slam it becomes pudding like.
  2. Taking over a college class for a friend and found that the clay body is very "short" . Does well with pinching and coiling but is cracking a lot with a slab roller. Any quick fix ideas? I can't age it for 3 months. Thanks!
  3. I recently pugged some bits of clay from my slop bucket. The pug comes out reasonably soft and moist, but kind of cracky. It is all the same type of clay, well 99% anyway. Whassup with dat? j
