Very nice combination John. Love the Newman red terra sig. I've been thinking about switching to cone 6 one of these days but want to use a light body. I thought I'd need to use an iron slip to give me an earthenware look, but I think the Newman red terra sig is a great option.

Hey June, Missing you two!

I also used Laterite and ball milled it for 2 hours. Easy sig!

ehyup, its playing with minerals instead of fire.
btw...how do i get my site url on your links to webpages ? http://MaggieJones.com

John, same here. A big part of my heart is still in Western N.C.
Where did you dig up, or buy laterite?

No ball mill here, so I have to go the traditional terr sig making route.

June, I got m ine from Laguan Clays.
Called Laterite Red Clay in the Dry Materials sections. It is the clay John Neely used at Utah State for all their reduction cooling stuff. great stuff!

Thanks John. I also meant to ask how much laterite did you use with the with the Newman Red.
Thanks again for the link. I'll order some.

I just used 100% Newman and 100% laterite for two types of terra sig.

Can I make Newman terra sig just by ball milling
The Newman and water for a couple hours?
Thanks, Annabelle

This is what I do. You still add some deflocculant but that makes it smooth without the decanting.
