  1. When I built a raku kiln many years ago, I used expanded metal (sometimes called expanded mesh) which is made from steel sheets. Looks like Varsteel is close to you and sell it http://www.varsteel.ca/. It can be a challenge for the homeowner to cut so have them cut it to size on their industrial sheers.

    Pres, you're keeping us in suspense on posting the answer
  3. Advancer Kiln Shelves

    Bailey sells Thermal-Lite shelves which are made in Germany (Advancers from St-Gobain, I can't recall the name of the company that makes Thermal-lites). These shelves are virtually identical to Advancers in materials, thickness, weight and maybe a few bucks cheaper, though still expensive. Just another option if you are considering purchasing Advancers.
  4. If you ever wondered what Mark looks like, crack open your Feb 2018 Ceramics Monthly. Mark is featured in an article where he offers up lessons learned during his career as a potter. Congrats! -SD

  6. Kick wheel of unknown origin

    Diz, Wish I could help more, but the Randall wheel in the video isn't mine - just something I found on Youtube which I though might be helpful. Hopefully Continental Clay was able to assist you. -SD
  7. Kick wheel of unknown origin

    To me it looks similar to a Randall wheel, but I think it actually might be another make that I can't identify. That said, here's a youtube video that shows a Randall with its wheel heads (flat and cup for plaster bats) removed. Given their similarity in design, hopefully this is helpful.
  8. Here's a write up from Anne Bailey on the vibrant Betty Woodman https://www.baileypottery.com/Blog/ArtMID/885/ArticleID/72/Remembering-Betty-Woodman

  10. Mug dimensions

    I don't have this book, but is there any chance they are including the width or length with the handle in one of the measurements? I think I've seen teapot dimensions that included the spout and handle in the measurements.
  11. Mug dimensions

    When I see three measurements listed, I interpret it as height x width at the object's widest point x length at the object's longest point. So, if it's a thrown round object that is 6 inches tall with a 4 inch diameter at its widest point, then that would be "6x4x4".
  12. It's pretty deceptive, but I think it is for one brush even though it shows a set of 5 different sized brushes. The listing for the item is "MACK Sword Striper PINSTRIPING BRUSH 20 SERIES Size 00" Size 00 is the brush size.
