I watched this for my interest in terra sigillata and using at higher than earthenware temp. To see Janet making terra sigillata from natural clay found in the desert and the settling- what parts can be used and how opened my mind - it was so beautiful to open me to using the clay outside my door. I loved her tips on using latex . The varied ways of using decals was great too. New doors opened 🙏
