Not much happened today. I threw some pots while the kiln was firing. I will open the kiln tomorrow. Did do a nasty painting that will be covered up soon. I got the information from the state geologist department about native clay in Walla Walla. I will be giving a pottery workshop this year there and finding local clay nearby for them is a good deal, just for reference. I did see that the local clay has only 47% silica. I wonder what would happen if we dug local clay which doesn't hold up very well and added silica and bentonite to it. I really like what I am doing now but that is an interesting proposition. I hope to take a trip to Dayton to deliver some pots before we travel to New Orleans. More later.
