Here's a pot out of the last firing and currently in the MudFire Gallery. This pot was made with Zella Stone, from Highwater Clays. It's covered with a Helmer Kaolin slip. The rim was waxed, and is simply bare clay. The black is comercial underglaze, Amaco LUG-1. The small little leaves are actually painted on commercial bright red underglaze, then outlined with the black. Not so red, but pretty friggin' nice, I think. This pot was raw glazed and single-fired to cone 10ish. Four pounds of salt put into the kiln starting at cone 7. Any questions?
