So, what is the bottom line here?
If it were really dangerous, wouldn't we have a bunch of potters getting =
sick and form a statistical blip?
What is expected to happen?
More Cancer?=20
What are precautions to take?
I only used about 2% ball clay in my mix now.
I wear rubber gloves, a OSHA Mask and an apron.
I assume it is not dangerous to throw with??
Some guidelines anyone?
TIA Frank
