We have had good success by re-glazing dirt glaze with PVC to cone 8. It is so successful along with Tea Dust that I am tempted to stay at cone 8 for a while. I did just mix a bunch of cone 5 clay so there is that. We'll see. I might be in good shape for Wenaha. I traveled to the Walter Clore Winery for the September/October exhibit. I send Carolyn the information on my past and I hope it is what she wanted. It will appear in a magazine. I made a short practice video again yesterday so I can Make that video on digging and processing native clay. I added silica and borate to the dirt glaze in hopes of making it stop crawling. The test pots were fired today so the test can happen tomorrow. Wish me luck.
