    I really like the softness of this piece! The glaze goes perfectly with the decals.

    This is beautiful! Thank you for post this. I have always wondered what underglazes would do when sprayed. Very lovely!
  3. Mea, you mentioned the Jack Reacher series before, So I started reading those (very entertaining!) I will now check out these two characters you have mentioned. And no, I am not doing audiobook, but I am downloading from the library for reading. I love your recommendations! Have you read/listened to Robert Galbraith? Quite satisfying. In the studio, I start with a variety of music in the morning, check in on Public Radio at some point during the day, change up the music, and will probably end up with something on Hulu. I really like a lot of the BBC comedies and dramas.
  4. Mason Stain in base glazes

    I just used 4% praseodymium (spelling!) and 4% tangerine in a base, trying for a creamsicle orange. I should have used less of the yellow. Go with the lower percentages, the stains are strong. Roberta
  5. Upcoming 300th Firing - Kiln Repairs

    Because I live a long way from a kiln parts store, I keep a few parts on hand. Like pretty much everything. I have had to replace a relay twice. Not the same one. But it's pretty clear when you do need to do that. When I change the elements, I change the thermocouples. Like Mea said, they do seem to last longer, but they are not expensive (relatively) and it's easy to do while you have everything apart. Roberta

    beautiful shape, beautiful layering.
  10. Moon Jars

    Joseph, the shape of these jars.....well, it's perfection. I am impressed. I especially like the texture, of the unglazed pots and the glazed pots. Excellent work!
  11. Is Obsidian a satin/matte glaze? Is the PC you are using a satin/matte also? Just wondering. Roberta
  12. Nice Lee! I am impressed. I think how you linked the pdf docs. Great!! Roberta
  13. Can I save this mug?

    what they said. You will make many more pots. As Joseph suggested save it for a pencil holder or vase. Best piece of advice I ever got was "there are no precious pots" You will learn from every single problem that you have in pottery. And Min's suggestion was also spot on for future work! Roberta
  14. I did use plaster of paris (from the hardware store) for my damp boxes. I haven't had problems yet. If I do molds or bats, I will get potters plaster for certain!! Roberta
  15. Making sugar savers question

    That's what I did. They work great. a red/brown cone 6 clay that I fired to 04. I use them all the time. Roberta
