Open House –
Many of you have been asking when we are going to have another open house event after our last one in 2011. We are pleased to announce that we will be having one on July 20th with an emphasis on Flameware as well as other cooking that features clay.
Top chefs will demonstrate cooking techniques using ceramic flameware vessels, and Jos Sances of the Tortilla Conspiracy will be cooking up a taco storm. There will be ceramic vessel and art displays, flameware for sale, wine tasting by SeraFina Winery, Kombucha tea tasting, Kim chi tasting, a fantastic newly designed pizza oven in use by Chuck Adams, and pottery wheel demonstration by Eric Struck. View the new terracotta wine barrel by Mission Clay, and a lot more! There will be a raffle at 4PM. Win a dinner donated by Las Camelias Restaurant, a lunch, flameware vessels, lots of prizes, with the proceeds supporting local ceramic art program – Richmond, Albany, Berkeley.

1101 LX Clear cone 5/6
Leslie’s has a new cone 5/6 clear, 1101 LX Clear, specially formulated to fit mid-range porcelains. In the past you were forced to use Laguna’s notoriously difficult to apply MS-29 Clear Bright to get a good fit with tight bodied mid-range clays. The new 1101 in contrast brushes on like a dream has a pink dye added which makes even application much easier. After extensive tests by Leslies and by Leslie customers (Thank you!) the clear has recieved rave reviews and has performed beautifully.
Soon we will be introducing a cone 5/6 Satin Clear that shows great promise as well so stay tuned.
