I've had this North Carolina stoneware in the shop since last Autumn.
I bought it to use with my sunburst glaze, but it has the annoying
property -- fired cone 10 gas -- of creating only one or two blisters
per pot....each right in the very center of the most important visual
space of the entire piece. So I put the clay aside.
Meanwhile, this Spring I resurrected my working with porcelain and came up with a look I like.
Then one day I happened to be thinking porcelain but looking at my languishing stack of STARwhite clay. Hmmmm, says I.
