I've never started a year like this. I have my first outdoor show coming up this weekend and for the first time ever, I'm having trouble with all my glazes at once.

I finally am getting the Ferguson glaze (pictured) working again. And after six firings, I am getting the green to work on most everything. The Millring red, however is just not reacting well with the clay body. I think I'm going to become a porcelain potter whether I want to or not. Hey, I've got two pug mills. Why not?

Actually, I've always loved working with porcelain and I make about fifty porcelain pieces a year for my own enjoyment. I just wasn't sure about making the jump to all the necessary extras required to fire it. I guess I'm about to find out!


  1. the piece came out nice... dig that shade of blue

  2. Hey, thanks. I've always liked the muted look of slip under glaze. The surface color is sort of "pixilated" that way.

    I'm heading down your way tomorrow morning. I'll wave as I drive by.
