Laguna Cone 6 Calico

The fired cone 6 Laguna “Calico” clay body has a look I’ve been dreaming about for a while. It’s the floating iron flecks (or whatever they are) that I’m fixated on, they help add a depth and richness to the finished glazed surface that needed to see.
The downside is that the bare clay burns to a very very rough surface. I like a smooth foot, but this clay has tooth! That’s an apology waiting to happen…

Sandpaper rubber cemented to a bat offers a quick solution.

A few seconds of wet sanding and…

Butter smooth!
