Claybuddies is a Facebook group that is very important for learning new things, and for getting constructive feedback on pieces.
Recently a photo was posted that asked why a glaze had begun “cracking off”. In a few brief comments I learned to look at glaze in a new light… “Glaze is like trousers.” Imagine that! LOL Here is the fuller comment: “…Glaze is like trousers. Too small for the pot and it splits (crazing) too big and it falls off (shivering).“
I am grateful for the opportunities to learn more… about anything.
