  1. A few of us at a shared studio are thinking about building a wood fired kiln. We also want to also use it for salt or soda firings. We have access to some free wood from a mill down the road I thought I'd see what designs people like, pros,cons,etc . Comments, thoughts??? The 300 cubic ft John Thies one looks nice.
  2. Have to hurry up and make a vessel for my fresh cherry brandy mix then. The cherries are still green so I've got about 4 or 5 weeks. It doesn't have to ferment but its an excuse to make a nice vessel. 6000 years ago making wine! That was an interesting article.
  3. podcasts : Marketplace, Planet Money, Freakanomics - its all so interesting & entertaining
  4. with regard to halloysite in Canada: Callie - true- its not mined here & Ive been frustrated for years because I know where there is some, same geologic setting as the NZ deposit except its not right on the coast for handy-dandy extraction, processing & shipping. Can't get the area I know about going due to lack of funding for initial exploration work. I've heard rumors about a possible deposit in Idaho but nothing in production yet. If I ever get a chance to be back in the area that I know about I will grab a big bucket full.
  5. Very paranoid about Silico… hoping the copy/paste stays as is I read a few other tech blogs & when I first saw this my mind finished the sentence differently than intended
  6. you probably already have this book but just in case.....https://www.amazon.com/Kiln-Book-Frederick-L-Olsen/dp/0812221869 prob lots of answers in there I used to have a gas burner ca ternary arch brick kiln and i had to reduce the size of the flue opening - a friend helped me - I probably should have read the book!
  7. I burnt hand in the kitchen again! I'm getting a set of protective raku style gear for the kitchen :angry:

    Plus its such a bad time to have an injury!

         ...soak that pot, soak it goood

  8. Anyone know of a good brand or type of polish for smoked pottery that is non-yellowing? Closest I've found so far is Pledge but it doesn't produce a high shine. Beeswax is really yellow (surprise, surprise) and floor paste wax causes the white parts of the terrasig to go yellow too
  9. The arts council thing is what bothers me the most too. Politics & ethics.........
  10. I think my kids watched a movie about this. How its made talks about it too
  11. Go on a tour at Kohler and spy out the cone they fire their porcelain to. The factory is in Wisconsin. Unless you have a similar factory in St.Louis?
  12. Simon Leaches videos show him nodding while throwing. I thought it was involuntary. Simon Leach uses a mirror too. Pretty sure I don't nod. I pull up the pots either looking in the mirror or eyes closed.
  13. there's a thread about it. Its not really a straight line- there is a bit of a wiggle so I think its an s crack. go to this discussion : PS your post is in the wrong section.
