The blue slip is also looking happier,probably as a result of a better firing [third firing with the new kiln,first good one,despite being too long] but also due to the higher iron content of the clay- I sold the baking dish still hot from the kiln this morning.
As you can see,I'm happy to have the iron back in the clay,but Gunnmarit,who made an order of plates for a restaurant in the previous batch of clay,wasn't so pleased to see it - her plates came out too spotty. Luckily I still have some of the lighter clay left,so we're going to swap clays tomorrow on our way to another meeting of Tel Hai graduate potters [and their teachers],this time at Netzer and Shelly's studio in Poriah,near Tiberias.
