Handbuilding with Stiff Porcelain Slabs

I'm still in the process of creating a new Insomnia Pottery website where my pottery blog will live.  In the meantime, I am doing my blogging at another website.  I just did a post over there about some handbuilt work using Georgie's Crystal Springs porcelain.  It's been good to work with as long as I don't rush the drying.

Here's an image of one of the pots I build and decorate in the blog...  please have a look if you are interested.

Handbuilt porcelain vase ready for the bisque kiln.  I'll fire this pot in my salt kiln with an interior glaze only.  I've been getting a lustrous pure white surface with this clay that I really like.
