Adding grog to clay dug from pipeclay lagoon. Grog (crushed fire bricks) helps the clay become more porous so that when they are being fired the moisture can escape quickly and prevent the tiles from exploding. Even though plenty of grog was mixed in, I still lost a lot in the fire!
I live and work in a cosy farmhouse on the pristine South East coast of Tasmania with my husband and three children, three cats, fifteen chooks, two horses and two wayward shetland ponies. You can find me every Saturday (Rain or Shine) at Salamanca Market in Hobart. Site No. 95. I am also happy to post Australia Wide.
