Progress

Bowls pinched from Valentine's Sprecial Porcelain - difficult.....




I have two new clays to start on tomorrow: Witgert's "Mont Blanc" porcelain and Crank Clay from England - a coarse stoneware body for coiling larger pots.
The Mont Blanc will be the third porcelain type I try here: the "Special" porcelain from Valentines was difficult to control - very thixotropic - just got wetter and wetter as you worked at it!  But once it had stiffened up a bit it worked fairly well. Drying happens very quickly in the heated studio.
