Clay #5, the final dig

In January I went back to the Kimbell for the last chance at clay before the hole is covered over with concrete. I got about 2,500 pounds of a brownish / redish clay. Although there are a lot of rocks in the clay, and it is a bear to process, the clay is nice to work with on the wheel and it casts pretty well too. At low temperatures, like cone 04 or 05 it fired pinkish, at higher temperatures, like cone 5 it went green, and when cast it collapsed, when thrown it held its form.
