Fired Drums

A quick little project - These pots just filled the top shelf in the bisc nicely; Yaacov came and took two,one had a cracked base [trimmed too thin,tool too blunt] and has been sent to the garden to function as a parsley pot,and one is still in the studio,where every second person plays on it. The raw clay looked like an earthenware,but now that's it's bisced I wonder whether it's one of those clays labelled "firing range: 1000-1260 degrees" which I never fully understand- if it fires to 1260,obviously I can fire it to 1000,but it'll look half-fired,like this one.The terra sigilata is more the colour I was hoping for.
