The first pot is made from light stoneware. The second is made from a darker stoneware but nothing like a black stoneware. There are visual dots on both pieces that were cause from the popcorn. Fired in ^6 reduction firing in a slight reduction after ^09 up to ^6. I think there is some potential here. Stranger than weird , but interesting. I was told to try this by Mike McCullough of the Seattle area wood-firers when I went to an NCECA pre-conference workshop.
Also John Britt said Malcolm's Shino worked without altering for ^6.
