    How to Make 4 Footed Pottery?

    Hi JohnnyK, Yes, that is what I'm trying to do - the pinching method. But I have seen the footring method too, but couldn't look it up, cause I didn't know what it was called! So you make a thick bottom, then carve the upward curve into it? I will go check to see if I can find some videos to help me see it, also. Thank you very much, Nancy
  5. Finding this very late, but a question: i like to trim but getting the darn piece centered takes me at least a few minutes for each piece. To me, that’s a huge waste of time. I tried tapping to center - hahahahahahah - No. so i let the piece go round and round and round with my finger held out, pushing and pulling, to center for trimming. Any other ways to do this more efficiently? Thanks, nan
  6. Hi all, i know how to make three footed, “tripod” pottery such as the kind Sandi Pierantozzi makes, as I bought her video here. I may have asked this already, but how do you make feet like that with 4 feet? These are tripods on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/market/tripod_mug I've been playing with it, and I don’t think you can do the same technique. I was thinking of maybe cutting away clay fromthe bottom? Any ideas, much appreciated! Nancy
  7. I just had to get fingerprinted and they had a tough time getting prints! I’ve been fingerprinted before and that never happened. I’ve been throwing a lot more this year! nancy
  8. I usually buy locally, although local is an hour and 40 minutes away. So I have to order sometimes. And I appreciate threads telling me about companies. I had hte same experience with this store as the OP did.
  9. That's weird, I could swear I ordered three glazes from them about 6 weeks ago, but they never came. I looked in my emails, etc., to see how they were being shipped and how I paid, but couldn't find any emails from them. I just put in another order and I'm praying they don't screw this up, too. Thanks for sharing this! Nancy

    Firing with glass

    Oh, I hadn't seen your post before. Interesting. I was thinking of using glass in a little ring dish, nothing usable for food, but I guess the glass could still pop out and cut someone. Thanks.

    Yes, thank you very much! Nancy
  14. Hi all, I had a brief foray into glass arts and have quite a bit of small pieces of glass and grit left. I want to fire with glass but no idea how to do it. Usually I bisque to cone 05 and fire to Cone 5, no hold with Laguna clays. Do you bisque first and then place the glass? Doesn’t make sense cause if a bowl, how would you get the glass to stick? Obviously, I’m clueless and any assistance would be very appreciated!!! Nancy

    If one of your students....

    My first pottery teacher taught me from the beginning that nothing is certain until the piece is on your shelf at home. Best lesson ever! Nancy
