Subject: ash washers unite

Today while drying a small amount of ash in the microwave a thought came =
to me.

What would be the problem with mixing the glaze with un-washed ashes, =
letting the glaze settle a day or so and then decant the water off the =
top and re-add fresh water. Then repeat the process a few times to =
remove the ash nasties.

I know some have said don't wash the ash at all, but the cone 6 glaze I =
use gives better results if I wash my ash.

Has anyone tried this???
