Cleaning earthenware

From: Jenny Charles <jcharles>
Date: Sunday, September 3, 2000
I used to be a full time studio potter and am currently studying to
be a freelance conservator of ceramics (and related materials ) at
West Dean College, in Chichester, England. For my final
dissertation, I am investigated the problems associated with the
cleaning and bonding of Creamware, pearlware and in fact white
earthenwares in general.  My aim is to find a more satisfactory
cleaning regime. To this end, I want to gather as much information
as possible about other people's experience of this type of ceramic
body.  This is so I have a broader picture of the problems that have
been encountered so that I can devise some tests to be carried out
later in the year. Any information or thoughts will be most welcome,
either from direct or indirect experience, or even some suggestions.
