The explosion in my bisque kiln this morning scared me so bad...'thought it was a gun shot & was just about to report it to the police.

    You should always pack heat when throwing, because when seconds count, police are minutes away. Sometimes you need that extra special tool just to put that unruly coffee cup or bowl out of its misery. A 22 cal. works up to 3 lbs. clay. A 38 cal. works up to 8 lbs of clay, and a 9 mm works for clay vessels over 8 lbs. of clay. My neighbors can tell the difference between a bad coffee
    cup or stein! My dogs no longer flinch!

    Greenware wasn't dry? I've never had an explosion ... what caused it?

    To all: It was wet greenware that exploded...kiln is fine (now that it has been emptied and thoroughly vacuumed)...still laughing at Alabama's "calibrated" recommendations :) I can only image how police would respond to the mention of "kiln"...'never really thought about it until now...there HAS to be a good joke there somewhere. -Paul

Phew! First car load of studio 'stuff' gone to the re-cycling/land fill. Now, what to do with stuff another potter might want?

    Put up an ad in the supermarked or at your suppliers?

    Did you get a cold in the plane? In any case, get well soon. Drink hot water with honey and lemon juice in it. Gurgle with saltwater! Hugs!

    I still have some orders to come. Still basking in the afterglow of over stimulation of NCECA.

It is time to retire my 30+ year-old Creative Industries MP wheel...controller, motor, and bearings are pretty well toast. *Big Sigh*

    Had and MP, and an HP at the HS for years. Loved them. Especially the HP still there when I left.

    Happy to hear that you are home safe Marcia. Let's try next year in K.C. to have more time together (not only in the booth). Do you have a story for the QOTW-thread?
