Three and a half boards worth made now.
Half a dozen small beakers, three tankards, half a dozen plates that will hopefully be turned into graters, a couple of small cheese plates with lids, and a larger one too.
The clay (Potclays 1142) is just not drying, and is getting very difficult to throw. It is reclaim, possibly it needs a longer rest before being used again.
So I have opened a fresh bag of what I ordered as 1142/30 (the same but grogged) but has different numbers- White Special Stoneware 157-1142, 157-4230 I think they have changed their numbering system since I bought the last batch nearly ten years ago!!
The idea of getting a sanded body is to get improved thermal shock resistance. We'll see if it takes to a salt firing better too!
I made a bowl to be turned and pierced as a colander too. Perhaps it will be easier to stick with ungrogged clay for that, but we will see how it cuts and how fast it wears out my tools.
