I image we could each make about a shelf or two of work (12" x 24") and glaze it in our own glazes and take them over to Linda's for the firing. If we all make bowls then we can donate them to John Hartom's Empty Bowls Project when we are done.
Let me know it anyone has any suggestions or if I left out anything. We can talk more about it at the September Clay Club Meeting,
You just have to share your recipes.

"To throw: Potters at Marshall Pottery in Texas describe their work at the potters wheel as turning. They understand only the modern meaning of to throw and do not use it to describe their work. However, the Old English word thrawan from which to throw comes, means to twist or turn. Going back even farther, the Indo-European root *ter- means to rub, rub by twisting, twist, turn. The German word drehen, a direct relative of to throw, means turn and is used in German for throwing. Because the activity of forming pots on the wheel has not changed since Old English times, the word throw has retained its original meaning in the language of pottery but has developed a completely different meaning in everyday usage. Those who say they throw pots are using the historically correct term. Those who say they turn pots are using more current language. Both are saying the same thing."
