Alchemy of Clay & Living in Black Mountain NC
Ohhh, the mug, mmmm :)
I must laugh out loud...I didn't make the mug. Just was showing the glazes. Tee hee!
I just opened up a bag of speckled brown, hoping to test my blue green glaze on a few pieces next firing. I also picked up a red clay in Charlotte when I was there a few months ago but as I recall they told me it was only to cone 5, I've got to go back and see if I can get the specs from them
Or you could make some tests little pieces to see how it holds up. We fire our Skutt electric kilns at the studio to cone 5, then soak them for an hour...which usually gets everything to cone 6. Not sure of all the program details. But some red clays are low fire and don't even go that high...worth checking.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
