    Ceramic statue repair

    In addition to Mark's suggestion. Warm water with a little Ivory liquid would work. Just make sure that you do not let the sculpture stay wet too long as you may cause the protective glaze to lift. I work with many different finishes in my ceramics repair business. The best rule I can share is start with the least intrusive method, then if needed go to the next level.
  2. I am finally ready to get my pottery studio ready.  It has been several years in the making.  Very slow..sort of glacial.  Ordering a kiln this month.  I am excited and scared and euphoric!!

      Took me 3 years to get mine together and couldn't be happier. My wife wanted to turn it into a "crafts" studio and I told her that if it wasn't clay, it wasn't happening! Now she refers to it as "Your Studio".

      Nothing more exciting than finally pulling together one's own studio! Wait 'til the kiln arrives :)

      Good to hear that I am not the only one to take so long to pull it together.  I am going to have a party when I get a good kiln load out....for my friends for listening to me for years about these plans and never doubting me.

    Pots in Movies

    I also like to see the props in the movies. Have you noticed that there are some deco style ceramics that make multiple appearances in many movies of the 30's. Mark, sorry I missed your bowl in Humboldt....I actually did see the movie.

    More New Kiln Advice: Size And Shape

    Great topic as I am looking to have my very own kiln by the end of the year. I am new to this group and have enjoyed reading these posts. Maybe you have already done this. I had been thinking that I needed a much larger kiln until I visited a potter I know and saw not only the kiln, but the size and number of items that came out of his most recent glaze load. It was a very small kiln, but the results were similar to what I imagine I would want as a load of my own items. It was eye opening!!!! I like the L&L kilns but I am looking at the Olympic Medallion Artist line of kilns.
