  1. My stoneware mugs seem to be having major issues with their lips. Instead of the glaze breaking smooth over the lip it is rough and grainy just at the edges. Im not sure if this is a throwing flaw from the chamois taking away too much clay leaving the lip rough or a glazing issue where the glaze breaks. Either way, I must fix it because its not acceptable. Lips appear smooth after throwing, and I sponge my 04 bisque before glazing. Firing to cone 6. Hope someone has an answer! juli

    Standard Studio Shot of a Place Setting

    Your pictures all look great! Good job!
  3. Does anyone have any good tips on stamping pottery? I can't seem to meet at the same point I start at. If I start in the middle of a bowl and work my way around I never end up in the right place. More like a wavy line instead of straight. Thought about shining a laser pen on my pot and working in a level circle around, but a level lasers cost $$$. Any good tips would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

    Getting A Kiln Delivered

    When I ordered my L&L I just private messaged Neil ,who just posted above, and he took care of everything. I had never met him except from this forum. I would rather a friend on this forum get the sale instead of some company I had to call. I have called him several times with questions. I did the same thing for a friend who wanted a paragon,called Arnold Howard, also on this forum. J.
  7. Wow! That was arrogant! Love your quote at the end,"putting you down does not raise me up". Next time you might wait until some "new people" ask for your opinion before slamming them. regards, juli

    Glaze Kiln Loading Query

    Dang, in my L&L I thought I was supposed to leave two elements between shelves, the first time I didn't and just left one on the top shelve with a full shelve instead of the normal half shelves, I got a kiln error because the difference between offset thermocouples was so ...different. So now, three layers with two elements between. My shelves are knuckle scrapers to the very edge. j
  10. I liked Dharsi's noodling around photo and automatically clicked on it to enlarge it. Purple is not my color, but looked fab on the pots, the noodling photo glaze I would love to know more about. I clicked to enlarge and it was still thumbnail. sad juli

    Glaze Is Grainy, Rough At Lip Of Mugs

    Just threw a mug and left the lip alone, much better looking. I love a chubby lip, and I think I overwork the lip trying for a nice curve and chamois it to death bringing to much grog to the surface. Bad habits are hard to break, and this one ive been doing for ever. Ouch, I wish it was the glaze. Thanks everyone for taking the time to give input!!!! juli

    Glaze Is Grainy, Rough At Lip Of Mugs

    Well, yes, it does happen with all three clays I use,,Trinity 6,and two Armadillo clays, a brown and a white. The glazes are nutmeg, (pretty stable)l, and butterscotch over rutile blue(pretty runny). Now that Ive said it happen with all my clays, and glazes, It might be my throwing.
  14. Just wanted to say hi, and its nice always to have a new friend. Holler back sometime. juli

  15. Several of my glazes are brown in the bucket and on bisque and it gets confusing when layering glazes. Everything looks the same. Can I add some sort of tint like food color to make them look a little different. Well not food coloring, because adding anything to dark brown will just come out, well, dark brown. Any thoughts? stoneware clay, (dark brown, and light buff). Juli I would post a picture, but they all pretty much look the same, and you couldnt tell them apart. lol

    glaze on bisque are the same color

    Thanks for all the great comments, I will try them out. I dont know why in the world they would make black food coloring, but I will look for it, as well as blue and red. Mark, I can never find a pencil or pen when I'm glazing, or my glasses, or my notes for that matter, but as long as pandora is up loud, Im pretty happy! Giltex58, thanks for the sweet comp.! *)
  17. I can't visualize the type of chuck needed to turn a foot on a bowl, platter, with an altered rim. It will need to be a wet chuck because my piece will be ready to trim in a couple of days. Would it be a large mound of clay roughly the size of the base for support and high enough so the rim doesnt touch the wheel head? Any and all information would be helpful. "I'm trying to think, but nothings happening". juli
  18. Too funny! It is a great screen name if I may say so myself! J
  19. Thanks for all the good suggestions. All are workable for me. I just got stuck with thinking a chuck was the only way and forgot all the standard ways to trim. Must be the 98 degree day, with humidity! juli

    Tenmoku And Nuka

    my favorite cup is the altered cup, but the glaze on this one is makes me want to embrace it, and get to know it better. I really like them all, but those two are my fav's.
  23. I have one and it works great for me. Sometimes i'm in the mood to do hand building I will set it up on my work bench that I usually use for holding thrown pots on the wheel. After a few weeks, and a couple of boxes of clay I am ready to get back on the wheel so I just take it off the work bench and now the bench is ready for throwing. easy peezy when space is not a premium. Easy setup, easy take down and store. Hope this helps, juli
