Has anyone ever worked with porcelain? I have about 400 pounds, through
donation, and I can't figure out what to do with it. It does not act like
the regular clay I buy. It seems to "rubbery" and "fluid" so that hand
building methods don't seem to work.

On my vacation, I did see some lovely porcelain leaves, hand painted in
Autumn colors. I assume this to be the slab method and then traced and cut
from a leaf. How do you dry these? So far mine have crumbled.

I am not very experienced in ceramics, but my students love it and I am
trying to develop lessons based on more than pinch pots. I teach k-12
learning and behavioral disorder population. To date we have done wind
chimes, pinch pots, slab boxes and played on the pottery wheel. if you have
any ideas about the porcelain I would really appreciate it.

and thanks too for all the welcome messages! This has been a very
interesting news group, compared to the others I have joined.
