I always enjoyed BUGS! Nothing much left behind after they "flux" ;) but a
few, often colorful, chemical reminants and interesting patterns.

With hard objects actually imbeded, it might be good if your ceramic body
did not have a high rate of shrinkage during drying. Tends to encourage
cracking. (I do recall hearing that someone used a latex fluid rather
than water to hydrate the dry clay which allowed a very flexible body
when dried, only hearsay however)

Ever fired a slip-soaked sponge? (maybe not such a good idea in an
electric (indoor) kiln tho)
