Re: possible place to send leftover cone 4-6 glazes and clay bodies...
I have stumbled on a mutually beneficial solution to all that leftover glaze
I've been saving up. I had great plans for that glaze that I have so
conscientiously NOT been putting down the drain ... but time slips by and I
found myself with a LOT of it and no time to do anything with it. I had
planned to make brick, glaze sculpture, etc ... having it disposed of at a
toxic waste site as a last resort... but I stumbled upon a guy who can
actually make use of/benefit from it. I asked him if he'd like me to post
this note to Clayart and he thought it was a good idea so here is the
He is interested in cone 4-6 glaze remnants. No lead (or anything else
particularly nasty). He also was thrilled to take about 300 # of stoneware
that has been collecting dust off my hands so clay bodies are welcome too so
long as it will work @ cone 4-6. I mentioned that my "junk" glaze should
under no circumstance be used on food surfaces as it has too many oxides in
it and would be cost prohibitive to do a leach test for everything in it.
He assured me none of it will be used on food surfaces. Perfect. I am
thrilled to find somebody who will actually benefit from such things. If
you have similar materials that you'd like rid of ... you need to write and
describe what you have and he'll let you know if he can use it or not. I
felt that I should be responsible for getting it to him, he is after all
doing me a favor. I'm delivering this batch, I will probably dry such
materials and ship them to him in smaller batches in the future.
His address is as follows:
26 Roxana Drive
Ninety Six SC 29666
Again he is only interested in cone 4-6 clay bodies and glaze. No lead.
I repeat you must write to him first and describe in detail what you have
and he'll let you know if he can make use of it or not. Do not send him
anything without his prior approval.

Junk glazes - will go on non-food surface items where the visual aspects of
the glaze are far less important than the form.
Clay - will be used to make whatever.
If you're interested I suggest you contact him direct.
