    Making underglazes from powders

    So, it really is just "cents" saved? I do spend a lot of time at the studio mostly being a presence, so the time factor isn't quite as big of a deal.

    Making underglazes from powders

    I know I'm coming late to the party but .... I inherited a bunch of Velvets and my studio folks got addicted to them - now finding that it takes between $22- $46 dollars (for the reds, of course) for a pint .... but I imagine using Min's recipe, 40% Mason stain will add up pretty quickly, as well. *sigh* .... the prices in this industry can be daunting at times.

    Malcolm Davis... bubbles?

    Interesting. Thanks for your response, gentlemen!
  5. We’ve been having a really bad run of luck with M. Davis shino. At first we thought it was glaze application, then maybe a bad batch of glaze, now I’m wondering if it’s our firing or if this just is a lousy glaze. The fault we’re running into is tiny bubbles that cause a very rough texture. It’s neither pinholes or craters, here’s a picture: Anyone see this before?

    Kilns designed/constructed by John Baymore

    Thanks tons for putting these up!! I am interested in doing a retrofit to make my wood kilns smokeless - any ideas where I could start? TIA!

    Where to source bespoke ceramic form

    That, and "bespoke" - typically Yanks say custom made or made to order.

    Ceramic Bakeware

    Hi Kristina- I actually do not think that is fear mongering, but there is much more experienced ceramicists here who can give you a more educated answer. I *will* say, however, that this is a very old thread and in order to get the most answers for your question you might want to start a new post. Welcome!
  9. What part of the country are you in? And what kind of surface do you want - glossy, a certain color, matte - ?

    Throwing Studio on 2nd Floor house?

    I gotta agree - there's just no way I would have clay inside my home. I wouldn't risk the airborne particles, never mind the mess.

    It's my own fault I know_just a wee rant

    Definitely worth looking into, but test your willingness to put up with other people's bad habits and your ability to address said habits.... it's been something that I have had to work on (for myself) very hard, nearly every day - I tend to be an "awww.... let it be..." kinda person until it gets to a point where I want to 'splode. Cleaning is the worst item, and I am *not* a clean freak.

    Wood firing conversations?

    No "duh", you just had to come 'round to it!
