Dear Ivor "down under",
Right now I am testing glazes to find a formula that will work like
"white out" does on paper. Only the glaze will take an ugly unsuccessful
form and make it beautiful...when we get it we are going to call it
But seriously, what you say below is so true. Form and glaze are like a
wedding. Thanks for helping us to see the merit of any color and the
subjectivity of overt glorified generalizations.
And to think I was just about to say that white should never be used on
any mugs under any circumstances. Whew...that was close.
Dear Potter W,
Some where in the vocabulary of Form there will be a Shape which, when
married to MiL blue will create a pot which speaks volumes. Such is the
Language of Pottery that the possibilities or endless.....

Waggoner, I am sure your "form out" is a practical idea, having just
accomplished the opposite. This week I created a glaze that is guaranteed to
make any form hideous , radiating toxic ugly for miles. A blue never found
in nature with the color and texture of the plastic used in children's toys
and being crystalline it glitters ! I will gladly supply my recipe so you
can work backwards from that.
