Hello. The greenware is ready to bisque tomorrow. The re-fire cone 1 firing in the test kiln looks good too. Whew! Started another 8X10 inch painting for the winery show in the Sumer. It feels good to have some things work out. I am calling the elephant painting done and will exhibit the next time we rotate at Gallery Underground along with Jessye. I was also surprised to find the clay slurry that hanging in canvas bags was ready for use. It seemed too wet the last time I checked it. The dirt glaze is working well. I mixed Othello clay but call it dirt 80% with borate, lithium, BBQ ash, and a frit that I was given. They all have possibilities. I am anxious to fire them up. I did screw up by adding extra dirt to the wrong glaze. We'll see what happens.

Decided to test my cone 5 clay for water absorption. it weighed 55.5 grams dry. We'll see how much it weighs after being soaked. Also It looked good in that it has sufficient native clay in it, ass


Someone should kick me in the head. For 14 years we mixed clay from powder at Kamiakin High School and it never occurred to me to dry screen Othello clay and dry mix it with Lincoln to make cone 8 cl
