Clay and glaze story....... I have been using Soldate 60 for 15 years 
or so and the same glaze for over 40 years, a gift from Viola Frey, who 
decided I was a hopeless case when it came to learning glaze 
calculation, ( R column or something like that ). Anyway... all of a 
sudden Soldate 60 had a slightly different color, a light tan, from 
gray.My glaze started popping off, so I called Laguna and they told me 
that they had started digging at the other end of the pit & it changed 
the color slightly, & if my glaze didn't fit alter it a little. NOT! So 
I used the clay for a completely different approach, the clay threw 
beautifully, too! I've been doing the "different look" for years now, & 
am quite happy, no glaze just oxides & post firing in my Webber BBQ. I 
use a different clay for my glaze work. Funny how things work out. But 
I must mention, I don't support myself on clay dollars. Mike Gordon
