Looking for info regarding using fertilzer for glazes.
I remember seeing an article in Aug. of '97 about this.
Wondering if anyone is doing this, and the pros/cons.

As more are going organic, there must be lots of bags of fertilisers in
garden sheds etc..
Another raw material for nothing. Lovely.
As I use natural RMs, I use the particles which will not go through the 100
lawn as fertiliser on the vegetable plot which is just adjacent the pottery.
So we can go both ways. Surprising how different occupations and hobbies can
link up together. Think wide screen.

Find a copy of Fertilizers as Glaze Ingredients by
ALAN IRWIN CERAMICS MONTHLY JULY/AUGUST 1997. I have a copy I scanned in for
my personal use but I'm always reluctant to pass such information along
because of copyright laws.
