  1. looking to share a kiln

    North Florida can't be so bad. Culver City has changed alot for the better. Lots of art, new one of a kind restaurants, too. Stop in when you visit. Thanks for the kudos. )|

    I don't know you but know that it's super cool of you to offer. The creative /ceramic spirits will bless you. I lived in culver city for a bit...... I miss it.
  3. looking to share a kiln

    I'm in Culver City, have an electric kiln and fire bisque to cone 04 and glaze to cone 5-6. We can share space if that works for you. It's a 3 tier Cress kiln 21" in diameter. Call me to discuss further. 310.384.8256. Steve www.everythinginclay.blogspot.com

    I'll be in Albequerque New Mexico with my wife who is a pastel artist June 6-9th. While she's at the IAPS convention I'd like to visit local pottery studios, galleries or events. Anyone know of a few I can visit?
  10. Pock marks in Glaze overpainting

    I will give underpainting first a try with a quick dip of the overglaze and I will check the commercial glaze recipe for zinc or other limitations. Thanks! But best of all, I am learning that it's not an application problem?
  11. Pock marks in Glaze overpainting

    This is a thinned out wash of Stroke and Coat over a dipped white or clear which may be too thick?
  12. Pock marks in Glaze overpainting

    This is a thinned out wash of Stroke and Coat color over a single dip of white or clear. Perhaps my dipped glaze is a bit thick.
  13. I fire to ^5, medium speed with 12 minute soak at end. Witness cones show an even heat throughout the kiln, yet I am getting pockmarks through an overpainting of Mayco Glaze & Coat when it is applied over a gloss white or gloss clear glaze. I have a picture of a piece before firing and 2 of the fired pieces. What causes this and how can I fix it? Thanks in advance for your responses! Steve
