Guilty as found



  There are a number of reasons why I should be banned from a our local guild sale and I just added another one. I use a cadmium red stain to get my pink shino and cadmium is a big no-no at the guild sale. I maintain we eat a whole lot worse things than are found in glaze materials. I'd take a key lime pie on a lead glazed plate long before a Big Mac from McPukes. I'm totally pumped with the pink shino and asked Cassara to throw a few test tiles for me. I said fairly large but she went so far as to throw us a new bag wall for the wood kiln. I'll need to make a 10,000 gram batch to test my new glazes on those test tiles. I got an orange cadmium stain I'm going to mix with yeller and red to get a nice peach shino. Many shinos are orange but I want a tin pink peach that is almost like the inside of a shell.

And I love the brushwork on the platter as well!

Lead shot, lead fishing weights, lead paint, asbestos brake shoes, mercury thermometers, so many things that set off alarms now but somehow didn't manage to kill all of us who have reached a certain age. Nice tea pots no matter what's in the glaze.

I just use 5% salmon pink mason stain for my pink shino (Linda's Pink Shino) 5% Vanadium yellow for yellow shino.

Those teapots call! I would not hesitate to brew tea in one of these!
Most cadmium stains are encapsulated and food safe, aren't they?
