What the hell is "soda" that's not Coke or Pepsi?

Lori Watts said...

Soda refers to both Soda Ash, a glaze ingredient, and the Soda firing, so named because it utilizes soda ash in glaze formation.

I need some new cabinet pulls...

Lori Watts said...

I can do that. I just delivered the last bunch. She is going to send me photos of them installed.

Actually, fifteen...come over for dinner some night and make suggestions.
