  1. Craft Shows... Tips For Success

    I didn't share the booth, because I didn't have inventory or courage. I needed someone else there to help man the booth and thought that others shared booths when showing. I am new to this and didn't realize that this would not be beneficial. I also realize what you are saying about it not being good for the relationship. I like to do things by the rules of the show and she likes to do things her way. If anyone can give other advice though I would appreciate it. I am newer to the area, so having help that is affordable may be an issue for me at the shows.
  2. Craft Shows... Tips For Success

    Would you show with another artist in a tent? I did this recent weekend and I feel like I sold her artwork instead of mine. She was out of the tent more than she was in it. Let me know what you think. I hardly sold anything and she sold lots. I do more hand building and she does throwing. Could this be the reason why? It rained the entire weekend too, but I tried to stay positive. Any suggestions would help.
  3. Firing Of Thinnslabs

    I knew someone who uses sand for her tiles to rest on to help with cracking and stuff. Not sure if this will help you or not. I believe she puts enough so it can rest easily on the sand. Hope this helps.
  4. Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I have purchased buncombe and red rock! Can't wait to use it!
  5. I am located near Lexington, Va.
  6. I am in the process of looking for an excellent clay for hand building, tiles, and sculpture. Please give suggestions for low fire and medium. Thanks!
  7. Maiolica/ Majolica Glaze

    I will post the pictures tomorrow. It was fired to cone 03. I didn't fire the kiln someone else did this, so I will have to ask them. I know the pots were all on the same shelf. I know the kiln was programmed on a slow firing. I do think the other pots ran more than they should of in my opinion, but the glaze may have been too thick on the others. Will find out the exact size of the kiln too. I just know it is a smaller kiln. I am newer at mixing glazes, learning how to run the kiln that is like this too.
  8. I believe I measured everything correct and the kiln should of fired to the correct temperature. The pots on the other side of the small kiln fired correct, but the cone did not bend that much that was near the pot that did not fire correctly. The glaze is suppose to turn out shiny, but was dull and white. Does anyone know what I may have done wrong or what could of gone wrong with the firing. It is a digital kiln that is electric if this helps. The other pots were from a previous batch of the glaze that I mixed too. Thanks for suggestions.
  9. Majolica

    Thanks! I can't wait to get started.
  10. Majolica

    Can anyone tell me what types of clay they would suggest for Majolica. I have read that Stan's red is a favorite. I plan on hand building, but may throw. Does anyone know if red rock would work? Both are from highwater clays in North Carolina. Thanks.
