The clay place

Once again I've moved my ancestors to another blog, so to speak. The Three Family Trees blog (HERE) will have all my ancestor posts, there are about 3000 that I know something about, so I only do one a day! I hope I live long enough to cover most of them!

So enjoy my sharing about clay and living in wonderful Black Mountain here on Alchemy of Clay again!

Stained bust of Kali

Finished, now I've got her around to catch every little thing I no longer need (psychically at least)...and thus I give her all that I don't want in my life any more.  She can take it.

In dry stage, waiting to be fired

Bisque fired
Finished with stains

This Soldate stoneware from Laguna clay works well for hand building. It has lots of tooth, and takes stain fine.  Fired to cone 5-6. No glaze, just red iron oxide stain.


  1. it looks great. Iron oxide is great but boy is it messy to apply!


Welcome to my blog. I'd love to hear from you.. I do review (monitor) comments so I read them, but I'd rather share them!
