DawnAtkin replied to missholly's topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkJohn, you just changed my clay life. A year ago I switched to electric fire to stop the "the kiln gods were not smiling on me" complaints. Other potters in my studio are shocked when I now say things like "I made a bad glaze choice on that piece" instead of blaming the humidity on firing day. But I do still have problems with slightly under-fired glaze in the bottom 8 inches and top 5 inches on the kiln. I will stop blaming the kiln and learn to load better. Thank you. -Dawn
If you could only take one piece of ceramic art to a deserted island, what would you choose and why? | July 26, 2011
DawnAtkin replied to Carolyn Dorr's topic in Int'l Ceramic Artists Network (ICAN) Operations and BenefitsA large, wide lidded baking dish with vertically fluted sides made by Jim Simister in Utah. It could do the usual catch water/ cook over a fire/ protect gathered food. In addition, I am quite sure those fluted sides could grate coconut. I would love to give it a try.
