I packed up my small truck with every thing one needs to demonstrate pottery throwing .I am doing a live demo (11am -1pm at one of my organic market outlets in Mckinleville,Ca as its local products demo day . This is the 1st year my schedule has allowed this to happen.I have. not done this in 40 years or more
Morning all. This is probably a basic question to many of you , but my Chemistry knowledge is not great and I would appreciate some help. Is it possible to change an earthenware clear gloss glaze (firing to 1100 centigrade) to a higher firing stoneware glaze (firing to 1200 centigrade) without knowing the formula of the original glaze. I am sure this question is answered in Digital Fire or somewhere on this forum, but I am feeling a bit lazy to search through- got too much playing in the studio to do!
I hope you find a good job, I have looked at two different pottery jobs in the past. One paid by the piece, it was mostly slab work. The other was a job to make slip mold originals. Neither of them paid a living wage and required a lot of driving. We don't have very many pottery factories in Kansas. I am sure with all of the potteries in Stoke-on Trent you will find the perfect job. Good luck. Denice
