Dish Soap and Reclaim Nation

I spent most of the day uncovering and sorting through things in my studio. There was some fun prepping some  red dirt for a new batch of dark clay, some reclaiming slipped into plaster bats. (See illustration)

the only thing more inefficient than reclaiming your clay
is making a drawing of it as you wait for it to be ready. ;-)


But the only dishes I got my hands on we're the dirty ones in the sink. But that's ALWAYS good practice running your hands all over a dirty dish can sometimes be very illuminating! 

I thought the soap pattern on this metal bowl took on a pattern a lot like soda glaze. 




I did manage to clear my work table and I plan on filling it with fresh clay tomorrow! 

Until then, chiao
