So...wow. Yeah, porcelain. It's always been one of those mediums where everyone talks about using porcelain and I could never bring myself to try it. I'm not sure if I felt like "I wasn't ready" for it or what. But yesterday I went ahead and gave it a shot and well, I'm in love. It's like throwing with silk. I really think that I may never go back to stoneware! Ok, that's a little drastic perhaps, but really, it was SO. NICE. I threw all of the above yesterday with procelain. I can't wait to see how it glazes. I'm especially excited about the mugs, because finally the rim will be silky smooth on the lips (not that anyone has ever said that my mugs were unpleasant to drink from, but it's one of those things that I've noticed and was always a little paranoid about).
Anyway, I'm excited to dive into my new venture. ALSO, if I ever start using crystalline glazes, as is my plan for the future, I'll need to use porcelain so no time like the present to get used to it, eh? I'm so glad that I went ahead with it.
