I absolutely love the red color of the fired but unglazed Florida clay slip. The fired clay with a satin glaze has lots of variation in color (I need to take some photos outside so you can see those colors) olive green, brown, even lavender. I have lots of ideas for using the Florida clay slip both glazed and unglazed. What I wonder is, can I grind this clay up to make it smoother? What can I use to grind the clay up? I think investing in some finer sieves would help too. What do you think? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Coming up more results from this firing; a patch job on bone dry clay - bisque is cooling - did it work? some great Florida mushroom photos; and a workshop. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
