tony - yesterday i asked you about an alberta slip formula that you had mentioned in a previous message. sorry to have bothered you as i did a bit more searching and found the answer on the plainsmen clay alberta slip page.  sometimes it takes just a bit more persistence to find the answer. thanks, though, for all your efforts to make ^6 website  and insight more accessible. i really appreciate the work.

Tony I read Zakin's Cone 6 book in the early 70's and felt it was the future of ceramics what made you feel this way.        Denice

Tips for Members

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. In the upper right corner of the lists for both types of posting, you will find an "+Add " button. Clicking it will open an editor where you create your posting. 4/16/2014
