Mixed more clay today. I threw some soup bowls for the charity and some tumblers today. Also made a bunch of test chips for glaze testing. Leach's wood ash was not opaque white so I put some Opax in it and will retest before the glaze firing. The dirt red is working, it needed Si. I am really excited for this next glaze load but the second cataract surgery is Thursday and Pat has us going on a vacation next week. I might be able to bisque the larger kiln this weekend but there will be no time to glaze and fire twice. I should photograph the bowls I already have and post them. They are dirt & PVC over it and it really looks good. Even the cone 5 looks different re-fired at cone 1. The St Helen's ash seems to be working really well. I am running out of BBQ ash so I will have to make some more,

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
