We headed out to Asheville early. It was a heavy duty shopping day with 8 stops which included a stop at Highwater for some clay and new thermocouples and some other raw materials and a bunch of small buckets, and stops at several food stores, including Sams club, then a great lunch with niece Andrea at Chai Pani.
We brought home some sushi from Earth Fare, so I didn't have to cook. After all that shopping, driving and unpacking the car and getting all the groceries put away, I was ready to just sit and relax with some sake and sushi.
I got a some cone 6 clays for my planned, experimental cone 6 soda firing and cone 6 oxidation firings. They were still out of the P5 porcelain, but I got some Little Loafers glory and a light buff stoneware. Those along with the BW white stoneware I have on hand should give me a good idea of how these cone 6 glazes will perform on a range of bodies and I have a few leftover bisqued Helios tiles which will give me an idea of how they'll work on a pure porcelain body.
