I've been looking at that porcelain canvas stuff, and getting ideas. Do you think a diamond bit could drill a hole in it for hanging?

My test of the Iron Crystalline cone 10 glaze in Ceramics Monthly came out just as in the photo-when does that happen?

    I fired it in a light reduction load to a soft cone 10-the crystals grew best in the updraft flue area.

    I wedged about 3/4 a 25lb bag before calling it a day. Putting the pride in a bucket was hard, but I gotta start being nice to myself. Tomorrow's 71 and sunny in Davenport, so I'm gonna throw in the sun. 'Tis good for the joints and the mud. :3

    The popcorn is a fantastic idea. I hate packing peanuts, because they get everywhere and are tough to dispose of. The popcorn, could just be thrown on the lawn, and the birds would take care of it. I wouldn't eat it, because "Ew Air Pop.."

    That was the original idea. . throw it on the lawn. However, it seems lots of folks see a box of popcorn and party! From what I hear.

    Today is the first real rain we've had for about 6 weeks. Annoying, because I had lots of cycling learners, that have all postponed. Not really complaining, the garden pots need the rain.

    very dangerous with such a large kiln-the heat will be extreme when you open the door. I think its a bad idea

    I think it's awesome that you're so bold and mixing up your own glazes already, just diving right in. I've been hooked on ceramics for three years and I haven't even tried that yet because I'm so intimidated by it!

Totally meant to do some volumetric blending but been distracted talking to local coffee roasters. Managed to get some green beans from them to try pan roasting.
