Slab Construction

Just thought I would add a link to a site that explains the details of making a box out of clay. We have just recently gone to the BIG City to fetch several new kinds of clay.

The one I tried today worked quite well for box making as you can see in the slide show.

I will try the other kinds of clay also.
Some of the clay and glaze are high fire, some low fire. So we have to be careful to mix and match correctly or things just don't turn out right.
Lots of science and chemistry and physics and all that going on in the pottery shop.
