OK. I woke up this morning ready to get some work done in the studio. I wedged and recycled clay, trimmed a few pots and felt inspired to throw a few pieces. Half way through my first pot I realized that I had accidentally mixed some reclaimed RAKU clay in with my high fire white clay. Yipes! I had mixed a whole bag of clay this way. I blame it on my lack of a morning coffee. So, I guess I will have some experimenting to do to try and reconcile the different clays once I try firing and glazing them.
To those of you that don't know RAKU clay, it is quite different from the smooth white high fire. RAKU has grog and grit, kind of a sandpaper feel to it. I'm not sure how the bowls will dry. I'll keep you updated once I bisque fire them...I'm off to grab a coffee, Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
