garden stepping stones

updated wed 15 sep 99


Gayle & Mitch Levison on tue 14 sep 99

I am interested in making garden stepping stones ( round, or variation
thereof 15"- 18" from slabs) from my recycled ^6 clay. (Miller 75). I
line in the NY area and am concerned with the stones weathering the
freeze/thaw cycles during winter. Have any Clayarters made their own
garden stones, and would you share the experience with me?
!) Should I modify the clay body ( when recycling?)
2) Shoudl I Glaze-- one side or two?
3) How thick should they be?

Thanks in advance. Mitch Levison
