while in japan, mr. uchida had us use a large old
clock with the min/hour hands removed.
we just had the second hand.
we had actual seconds listed for how long a pot was in the
glaze bucket. it was very precise.
so, thickness, measured time in glaze, and then careful
clean up and drying. all essential if you are doing a
thousand pots by hand.
it is rather easy actually. and, it makes sense.
and the big dippers we used to pour glaze are wonderful.
i made many of them since coming back to minnetonka. a stick
with a measuring cup attached. even two cup measures.
and, they are great for stirring the glaze between dips.
