I’ve been thinking for some time now about throwing some pots with BRT clay. I knew that it could prove difficult given there is so much grogg in the clay…and I was right. After throwing 5 bowls with this clay the skin on my hands had been kindly exfoliated, or should I say harshly grinded down beyond the epidermis layer down to the dermis layer – something ‘dermis’ related anyway! Now that I have raw patches of skin on my hands I can’t do any clay work until they heal! I’ll turn the bottoms of bowls once they are leather hard.
