In the most recent Clay Times ...
(which incedentally is a great issue)
... there is an article titled
'The Quest for Luminosity'.
On page 36 the artist states he fires to Cone 10
with the piece on the hump mold he used
to form it.
Do you suppose the hump mold was made from the
same clay body?
Does anyone in Oregon know Steve Albrechtson
and could ask him?
It was a timely article for me as I had just completed
my first experiments adding paper to Southern Ice ...
(Ha! ... I thought I was doing something new).
So far, the experiments have gone extremely well.
I will have images posted to my website within a week
or two ... at that time I will post again to let any interested
handbuilders know it is ready.

I think the article said it was a stoneware mold. This has me wondering
though, SI shrinks so much more than most clay bodies, I wonder if the
artist has one mold for forming, and a second smaller one for firing,
somewhere 21-25% smaller than the mold
