    Haven't been able to work in my studio for several days. My big Skutt needed rewiring. My husband decided we needed to put some more concrete board on the walls while it was out of the room. Hopefully I will have my studio back in a couple of days.

    Good that you are having some comfort in the making. Seize the moment. And make more. ;)

    Nice when clay works with you instead of against you.

    I think all the teapot failures helped in the long run. Besides I need something to test my glazes on :)

    Sorry to hear that, their lives are so short comparatively, and we miss them so much when they go.

I made a large porcelain bowl. It is 14 inches tall and 22 inches in diameter. Think I need to support it for the cone 6 firing?

    the foot is kind of small- about 6 inches diameter. It's handbuilt- not thrown.

    Depends on the clay, wall thickness. The fact you are not sure, suggests maybe you should.
