The Albany Slip
[Return to Topics]

I was just sitting around tonight and looking at some of the old stoneware we have in the house. I wondered how many folks out there have similar stuff.
For those of you who may not be familar with The Albany Slip, this is a type of clay that has been used in pottery for many years to give a certain type of glaze to it. The name comes from the location Albany(pronounced "all-benny" in Georgia). This area is in the Flint River Basin that covers much of central Georgia, generally speaking. Anyway, in the old days, the glaze produced by clay from the Albany Slip was much sought after and it is not uncommon today.
I have milk pitchers, churns, jugs, with and without lids, etc. They bring back many a memory. If anyone wants any further info, check out Albany Slip on any of the search engines.
Good luck.

The only Albany I know about is the one located about 150 miles North of Broadway here in the arm pit of America - Manhattan. Anyone know of a good deoderant, preferably unscented?

I have a recipe for home made deodorant.

Half cup of vasoline, tablespoon of baking soda and a tbl of your favorite talc or corn starch or both, mix, heat, and pour in a jar.

A little bit goes a long way.
