Black Shino tea pot/cone 11/reduction
`table salt added to the soda ash heated with water and
painted on the entire pot.`
This is the new mel6 clay body, with an old ron roy recipe for a base that i made
into pure white using zircopax and tin, and a black with red iron and cobalt.
Fired to cone 7 in just under 5 hours, with a 2 hour down fire at 1800F.
The kiln is a small 60 amp kiln, and it fires fast, no controller, switches to high.
