Two Bottles

Put together over the last few days for Meir's anagama,made from Meir's clay with my plasticising additions [4% ball clay,4% Molochite,1% VGumTee,or bentonite if you don't have any VGumTee [and I bet you haven't]]. The addition seems to do the trick- the clay is much more manageable,and will doubtless improve greatly with age. Ex-student Dror is now working with Moshe Clays,who make the stuff for Meir,and agreed with me when we discussed it during the Symposium that a lack of ageing is a major problem with locally-made clays.
