Thanks to all who have sent information and suggestions on this
subject. My favorite to date is spelled out in the following:

I've checked into a source in Minneapolis (Voss Electric) who is getting me
3 spiral florescent bulbs, 5100 kelvin (daylight-full spectrum). They
won't be here for a week or so and then I'll send a post to Clayart on info
about them and also report how they worked for me. I also intend to change
my shop lights to " full spectrum fluorescents (the long kind, and NOT grow
lights) ". Then if I leave my shop lights on I don't think they will
interfere. Otherwise I have been turning all my lights off other than
those directed at the pots I'm photographing. I may continue to do that

I understand that the bulbs I will be getting are similar to the bulb shown
