thomas - i didn't mean to insult you re:your pottery procedures. i respect your right to be private about your own glazes, if you wish, but i am pleased that you did give us the info re: firing temp and atmosphere. this is helpful for all of us as we look at your beautiful work.
thomas - it is obvious that lots of us on this list really admire your glazes and of course your pots. i also is obvious that many of us are asking what glazes you are using. could you please tell the group what your glazes are, how you apply them and at what temp you are firing. a lot of us would really appreciate hearing the answer.
