  1. sugru - my daughter makes rubber bottoms for glass cups with it. goes thru the dishwasher too.
  2. I know- I've just been waiting to say that to someone about that glaze
  3. coefficient of expansion - but the answer about leaving out 10% of the ball clay OM4 is the biggie! It's like leaving out the eggs in a good cake recipe- the cake will be dry and fall apart. State Penn or Penn State?

    Choosing a name

    Wow- I have to learn to write. I did the measurements and described the glaze but my descriptions are pretty dry compared to "crackles & feels amazing in your hands". But I will practice. Can I send one to you for an edit next time or maybe even dress up the ones I have now? I'll redo the descriptions with contemporary- but what is wabi-sabi?

    Choosing a name

    Did you mean "rotunda" or "arctic"? I backed off of the architectural version as I didn't want it applied to my waistline! I have to start exercising.......
  6. I think picking a name for an item to put it on Etsy is difficult. - eg. white speckled lamp with holes. Anyone else have this problem?
  7. Yep, & I bring my pottery to sales by horse & wagon! No worries about Facebook privacy issues here in our technologically advanced country - just our local nosy tele-ma-phone operator;)

    Tax Time for potters

    Did you hear that on April 1st?
  9. One more snow day then it starts to melt!

  10. This is what it looks like after a good round of activity. I have to clean it up prior to starting work again. The mirror helps me throw plus its great for notes & weights, etc. The avatar makes sense now right? Mess, mess, mess - but its my mess!

    Choosing Glazes

    I love Tony Hansen's glazes from Digitalfire and he publishes the glaze recipes as good starting point base glazes with tips about how to alter them for different degrees of glossiness and examples of stains. Also, it's always fun to experiment on a small scale with a test tile or two of some new idea for every firing. I have a textural test in the kiln right now - hope it works! Callie- what are you doing to your kiln (soda ash?) !!!
  13. recycling my clay scraps & using them for my smoked pottery then using the ashes from that to mix up ash glaze :D This recycling thing is working out!

  14. Names right! It was so long ago I can't remember but a less expensive book with lots of Shino recipes ( and other high fire recipes) is by John Britt. I like Penn State with lots of carbon trapping. We have cockatiels and they are pretty nice too! Is your book available at the library?
  15. I tried this one https://ceramicartsnetwork.org/ceramic-recipes/high-fire/malcolm-davis-carbon-trap-shino-glaze/# I didn't have any redart but I made it anyways- look for a no-iron substitute or just add more ball clay. I like the bright edges of the red marks on your pot though! How's your African Grey?
