Half a Pound of Salt

Like Mary Poppins, this firing was"practically perfect in every way." I keep saying that. So it's probably worth mentioning what I did differently:
  • Candling, and climbing slowly at the beginning.
  • A single new, larger kiln shelf changed the path of the flame.
  • 2.25 pounds soda ash, 2.75 pounds of baking soda, 4 pounds of whiting, and 1/2 a pound of salt. I think this last accounts for the juiciness and the honey-fied tones.
Just noting these things, so I don't forget.
