The reason we have had a two year discussion
on making new clay bodies for mid range, 6,7 is
that many of the vendors were loading their bodies
up to 30 % talc.

Most of the talc mines in the U.S. are now shut down.
So, that problem has taken care of itself.

As many of you know, I sub "redart" for talc and have
a nice body for midrange.  Ron has built an almost
talc free white body. My brown body would soda fire just

We do high temp salt here at the farm.  In fact we fire
"ladies only" this weekend. We will hit cone 11 salt for sure.
They know what they are doing.

I know nothing about mid range soda.  We moved back to salt
about 8 years ago. Soda spray was very hit and miss, and we worried
about our advancers blowing up.
