WOW! I think we have had a break through at cone 5. I am getting very good results with the dirt glaze. It's not completely the same but still good. I am getting ready to take a load to Moses Lake and some of them look pretty good. I mixed some cone 8 clay yesterday just to be sure. I am waffling something fierce about finding a comfortable temp for permanent. I took a load to Dayton to Wenaha Gallery since I am featured there this month. I expected to have to bring them home at the end of the month but they want to keep them. So, I need to make some arty pots for our gallery and Moses Lake. With Ann from the Roxy, where we have our gallery, dying it is questionable that we get to stay open but we'll see. I made some large soup bowls with handles at the recommendation of Heidi Riha, a friend, and she wants me to take them to Prosser. I plan on sending Carol at 6th Street Gallery some pictures and see if she wants some. Some of them have lids and some don't have handles.
