Dippy chimneypots, week two

The pots dipped last week are dry, but "needing things doing"

Ready to dip. Spot the four that are made of bamboo leaves

Experiment: the dried clay was scraped off some of the beads;
will it make a difference?

Supplies of the porcelain castig slip are getting very low, and very thick. Adding water
(lots of stirring) and putting it in a narrower vessel

Eight chimneypots ready to fire to 1280 degrees. The one on the right
has been bisque fired
