Hi John Anthony,
I'm going to try that slip, I've seen some pictures of Tony's work and
it really is a blaze kind of color.
Those high alumina slips are interesting under salt too.
And come on, tell us what you think of the mysterious 'opinion', you've
got my curiosity up. Was it a slur on us woodfirers, or what?

Dear John Anthony,
Tony Nankervis presented a paper as one of my panel members during the =
Salt Glaze Seminar at the International Clay Conference in Sydney in =
Tony was and I believe, still is, chief of Ceramic Operations at =
Southern Cross University, Lismore, New South Wales. An expert in high =
chimneys attached to Salt Fired Kilns. This "Blaze Slip" will most =
likely be for ware that is to be salt glazed, possibly wood fired.
