Salt of the earth

Yes, that's me. This is a salt glazed jug of mine from the second firing of the Sheridan salt kiln. I used my Cone 04 black slip and got this Wally Keeler like surface. I am giving a workshop this August at Sugar Maples in the Catskills and I will be including a salt firing. Since it is a week long workshop on making your work larger I ask people to bring 4 or 5 pieces bisque fired for the salt kiln. Otherwise people rush the first two days to get something in the kiln and we basically waste our making time.
