Phil, Bob, and anyone who read this message, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT use any
fiberglass products in clay which you are going to be handling by hand. The
fiberglass fibers will work into you skin, causing short term irritation and
long-term carcinogenic effects. Shy away from ever using fiberglass in clay.
