  1. metal frame 2

    Very nice.
  2. hand building

    I just want these boxes to "look" as if they are "nailed" together. I guess a trip to the hardware store is my next move. Can I assume that since zinc is used in glazes that it's melting point is below cone 6?
  3. hand building

    What type of metal tacks [small nails] will hold up at cone 6 and/or cone 10 firing? I want to use them on seams on hand built boxes.
  4. Verdigris glaze

    In John Britts cone 10 glaze book there is a glaze called Don Reitz Green that fits that description.
  5. I have use both of these glazes and an extra coat works the best.
  6. Guess how much clay I used...

    I'm going to go with 7 lbs. 8oz.
  7. has not set their status

  8. Have you tried paper clay? If your a hand builder this may work for you.
  9. Making A Boat Bowl

    I have been making some boat forms by throwing a bottomless form and closing in the top, then letting it firm up and slicing it down the middle. I then lay them cut side down and slip and score them together. Some times I throw a base and other times I hand build legs. I use a porcelain clay body or a 1/2&1/2 mix of stoneware and porcelain. They are fun to create and I like to throw then alter. The idea to make a bisque mold is one I will try next and like you I am only a "newbie" to this site.
  10. Ceramics In Fiction

    David Brin wrote a book called Kiln People and it's pretty good.
