Diane, thanks for your extensive response!   I have been using a ^5 commercial throwing body for these little burnished objects, and it works well enough. I also have no basic objection to non-fired surfaces for non-foodware; I do this a lot. I just figured I should take a little more control over the medium if I was going to do this stuff more seriously, so I was looking for a starting recipe to tinker with. I doubt it will make a big difference, as I’ve done this successfully with whatever clay was lying around in all sorts of places. I might even try coloring some porcelain, just to try the option. The stakes are low, so I will probably just experiment a bit.
