  1. Glaze Dripped Onto Kiln Floor

    Thanks everyone! I ended up cutting around and picking it all out! I read on another page that you can make kiln wash into a putty like and fill it so I have done that and coated the rest of the floor with a more liquid kiln wash! It should hold up I'm hoping for a new kiln soon so as long as it lasts until then!

  3. I ordered my potters wheel from them, they have great customer service! They have some iffy people in the warehouse because for the cheap prices I have placed many orders from them but a lot get messed up, ordering clay from them sucks but my wheel came fine and fast so I would bet you have good luck with the kiln! I'm on Nantucket so it is traveling a bit too!
  4. Hi guys, I have an issue! I had a bowl with Amaco tawny glaze and it came out extremely light so I reglazed it, however that glaze is super runny and ran onto my kiln floor and melted the floor it looks like, I also have a chunk missing now. How do you recommend cleaning and getting the rest of the glaze off the kiln floor without ruining it more??

    Could you post the huge thread you are talking about??
  6. I have the model k-810 forgot to type that, its about a foot by a foot on the inside, the model does not have a time on it so I'm relying on myself recording the time length etc every time. I do let the kiln sit on the first switch for an hour and by the time I either close the lid and or get to the second switch something blows up the following few minutes, do you think all the steam still isn't out by then? Im sure its about the 200 degrees it needs by then. I have a temp gun that reaches 640 degrees that I have been using to monitor the warm up.
  7. Hi guys! I was wondering what websites are recommended to start with! Im going to make an etsy soon to sell but what kind of sites do you use and costs?? How do you feel about Facebook pages??
  8. Well I finally have a space where I have recently made my own personal studio and I have a smaller kiln sitter kiln for that space and I just can't figure out what has been doing it. Last week was my first explosion is all the years Ive been throwing, now its a non stop streak. I know the air bubbles are totally me if their is some, but I also have been letting my pieces dry out much longer to keep from the moisture to causing it, Im just so lost as to what else it might be. For a smaller kiln I think an hour per each switch is plenty of enough time to warm up and let any extra moisture escape. So frustrating!
  9. Guys I'm having a serious issue, almost every bisque I have done recently in my new kiln sitter is having explosions. I have been letting my clay sit out longer and get even more bone dry yet it still keeps happening. I've made sure no air bubbles except for one piece had them however this is becoming an issue. Any help or something someone might recommend would be great! With the kiln being a kiln sitter I don't have much control to do holds I can only control the switches on the way up which I have lengthened a lot but once I hit the second switch everything goes boom, very discouraging

  14. Hi guys! I was wondering what to do for grinding my own glaze drips off my pieces that are unwanted! Before I had my own studio, I was using a professional one of my friends that worked amazing but money wise I'm thinking of just getting a drill bit with a grinding stone on it! I have a feeling a grinding stone will take a lot longer than finding something electric, Any advice on which to get or what works for you please let me know
