Feel free though to answer the question any way you want. The competion pots are a stone ware clay and can be fired in what is called an "open" or "closed" and anywhere inbetween.

Open firing allows water into and through the body. They hold water but are not waterproof. The pots can appear wet.

Closed firing makes the form as sealed as possible without creating a blob in the kiln. Generally still porous but wont appear wet.

The catch - do you use bennies? If so I think open form is better, otherwise I think I like the closed form. Your choices are as follows:
Cone 4 - Open
Cone 5 - Middle ground
Cone 6 - Closed
