White slip on dark clay is used in both slip and Punchong ware to great eff=

With earthenware, you can get depth you often loose with glassy glazes.

My last firing, I used Superwhite on tableware. But because
tableware has a lot of grog, it doesn't shrink much, so my inlay and
hakame flaked off, except for the rope impressed inlay.

Just brought home a couple hundred pounds of Fireclay with Iron that
works well with superwhite slip. Kintaro always gets fussed over
when we go to Continental Clay. I took him even though it was hot.
