Ceramics help!

Okay artsednetters, I need your help! I teach K-5th grades, and next year we
will have a kiln to actually fire work in. I am very excited about this, but
also a little fearful. I have no kiln experience!! I was a
painting/printmaker in college so my clay experience is limited. My question
to you all is what brands of glazes and clay do you recommend. We will only
be handbuilding next year, no wheel thrown work. I am doing my ordering now
and really have no clue what to order! I am hoping to practice this summer on
my own work so that I can build my confidence (hopefully)!. Do any of you
have advice for this newbie kiln firer?? I would really appreciate any advice
you can give.

I have a Skutt Electronic Kiln LT3K. We are used to working with Lizella
clay, but I am unsure about firing this.


Thanks in advance,
Heather in GA
