BEST CLAY CLUB EVER!!



Best Clay Club ever and I am not kidding. Alex Glover gave the best talk on Cherokee clay and North Carolina. Josiah Wedgwood and Darwin .

You guys missed out!!!

We will try to get him again.

I will let Amy Waller (who was responsible for this great meeting!) tell you all about it.  I have a short video clip of him discussing kaolin.


Here is a wiki link:

Josiah Wedgwood also invented the pyrometer, a device to measure the extremely high temperatures that are found in kilns during the firing of pottery. For this he was elected a member of the Royal Society.[15]
