<teapot body at an angle, so when the thing dries the spout will be
straight and the teapot will pour properly....

Do you put the whole spout at an angle, or just cut the lip at an angle? =
the pot's spout is facing you, is the angle to the left?

On another note, If you remember, List, I was asking why the recipe =
had given me "Val's Turquoise" didn't add up to 100% and if it was safe =
use as is. I got many replies and even some of you were kind enough to=20
calculate it to the 100% ratio. There was some discussion on where this =

glaze originated, as it had been on the list before. WELL, I have =
the source, or at least one of them. It appears in the Oct 2004 issue =
Ceramics Monthly, and is credited to Central Carolina College. It =
with its 100% ratio and unity formula. Those of you who re-calculated =
were right on:>)
I made it and glazed a pot with it. I should have it back next Monday =
will post the results. (I need to have my pots fired elsewhere, as I =
have a kiln yet)
