Small water dish

Recommended Posts


In my limited experience

  on one end, a red clay the vendor rates 6.5% absorption at cone five doesn't tolerate firing much higher
  my measurement indicates absorption between 4 to 5%

  on the other end, a white stoneware the vendor rates at 1.5% absorption at cone five tolerates overfiring better, but I just fire it to a solid five
  my measurement indicates absorption between .3 to just less than 1%

iow, depends on the clay.

However, a slightly absorbent terrarium water dish might be ok, if it doesn't mold up?
