It's been a long time since I have posted. I am loving working with the native clay. I think it is going to work just fine for planters and decorative pieces. I am planning on discontinuing the cone 8 stuff since cone 5 seems to be looking good. So that means cone 02 and cone 5 glazes. The biggest problem now is finding cone 02 glazes. Borate 50, Si 25 and native clay 25 seems to work well but I am out of borate so am substituting frits that Sis gave me. I seriously considering fixing my old, larger kiln and starting to do commercial planters again. I have been approached for making bonsai pots and that could escalate after the end of February. I have dropped out of the legislative district 8 team to help develop a creative space. There were 4 meetings and they blocked me getting access. This is so disheartening. I was the oldest and the most experienced one on the committee but they didn't care. Symbolically, they are trying to put a roof on a building with out pouring the foundation first. They want us to develop a tax funded performing arts center in communities that won't allow us the hang art in public buildings on walls that were designed for hanging art. In the next 3 weeks I will produce an exhibit of local's art in the one local public building made available, another one 45 miles away in Othello and a third one 50 miles away in Walla Walla. I need to contact the center in Kennewick to see if we can hang there now that we are in phase 2 or the corona virus thing. More later

I have decided to discard the bucket of commercial majolica glaze because I cannot find out if it has lead in it or not. Better safe than sorry, I guess. I am thinking about starting to use the pugm
