  1. top cage assembled

    It looks perfect!
  2. your work is anything but BORING!! It's exquisite!!
  3. Another thought for larger pieces.....in larger more urban areas there are businesses that stage houses for realtors or for sellers. I have sold a few things to be used for just that. Staging. Vases. Do you know an interior designer or house stager? Or Real estate agent. I really like the vase you posted in the gallery. It would look stunning with the right flowers or twigs in it. Just a thought. Roberta
  4. "art" of making mud balls

    Ahhhh the things that call us! Thanks for the video Lee! r
  5. red underglaze

    For a red underglaze I use Amaco Radiant Red. Stays nicely red. For a glaze, I used to use Coyote's Really Red. Stayed red to a hot 6. Cannot help you if you are going to cone 10. Amaco has a chart that give approximations of their Underglazes at low, mid, high firing. Perhaps that will help. Inclusion Mason stains will stay bright to cone 6. I have had good results with them.

  6. Yappy, I had to look at your location....to make sure it was not where I used to be!! Time to bolt. Even if you have to take a hiatus until you can save up enough for a kiln or find a good used one....could be worth it. My friend likes to tell the story of Ruth Ann Tudball who didn't have a kiln and threw pots for 3 years.....apparently she was reclaiming them. Good luck. I feel your pain, have walked your path. Roberta
  7. There are a few potters here in town, but they are not interested in conversation about clay/firing/glaze/element wear/making cone packs or anything at all really. So I did go searching for community and found YOU ALL!!!! since then I have connected with a few potters in a town 40 miles east, met some potters at a local workshop (150 miles south) and do stay in touch with people. It's how I learn, but I work best on my own. I have a group of makers that I meet with often and we plan joint events and collaborative projects. That is a great source of support. But none of them are potters.... I belong to NCECA, and ICAN and I have a membership in an art center 150 miles south of me, I do like community! Roberta
  8. I have had my head in paperwork for the last week!!! I didn't even know about the articles featuring Callie and Mark!!! So glad the articles were mentioned! I just read them both. So proud to know both of you! Great work. I now know why you both have been a pottery voice in my head, down to earth and smart! Congrats! Roberta
  9. 50th cottage front

    That is amazing! Do you make a lot of replicas of homes?? Roberta

    Great article about an inspiring artist. r.
  11. Walmart has them, I am going to order. They look awesome!
  12. Best Cone 6 Porcelain?

    If you are mixing a clear glaze, there are a few to try. I don't have access to Standard, but have tried all of Laguna and Aardvark and Continental's midfire porcelains. Get your hands on a copy of Mastering Cone 6. They have a couple of clears in there. Min gave me a clear recipe, I mixed up a small batch and now that Christmas is over will do further testing on it. I also mixed up a small batch of Low Expansion Clear out of the John Britt book. More testing on this one as well. Recipe below F-4 feldspar 24.4 Silica 26.4 Wollastonite 14.7 Kaolin 14.2 FF 3249 20.3 Bentonite 2 Roberta

      Yes, Indeed.  Taking a week to go see the kids  in New Mexico,  then back at it!!  Happy New Year.

  15. @ppony123Check out Babette Harvey's IG feed. She does work similar to yours and if I remember right, she posted some photos of her process. If nothing else, you will love her work. Roberta
