I love love love heart love this new transparent glaze from Amaco “Fog” from the Celadon line.
AND this porcelain clay, a bright white
Miller WC-631 #550 from Laguna is my favorite. It took me a long time to decide on a favorite porcelain clay. I’ve tried many brands, but this one is plastic and bright white … it does fire a bit gray in reduction, but in oxidation (which is what I fire), it remains pristine white.
In other news, we are having ‘weather’ in North Central Texas with the normal spring tornado watches … for those that don’t know, a ‘watch’ is simply a weather condition which may or may not produce a tornado …the warnings are a bit more worrisome because that means that there has been rotation detected in the upper atmosphere … or maybe it is on the ground already, but usually it is still in the clouds. We have heard what sounded like a tornado pass overhead one or two times and even here in east of Fort Worth, experienced a tornado nearby, but so far, so good — no tornado has taken out my house or anyone I love. I am still surprised that every house in this area does not have a tornado shelter. We don’t have an ‘interior’ room to hunker down in, but we do have a hall, and so that is where we go when the sirens sound.
But hey, it’s Spring! 🙂
