I made several vases on the wheel today. My back is killing me, but mentally I feel great.

    I am trying to keep a strait line from my neck to my back. But I have to lean forward with it too.. it's difficult. I think If I wore a back brace maybe it would keep my posture more aligned when throwing.

    Couldn't you just elevate the wheel a bit? Not fun having back ache!! Please take care.

Back to the classroom for 8 weeks wearing my uncomfortable instructor hat... clay and forums will have to wait, but it is a 'separation' not a 'divorce'. Later, ya'll!

    Good luck! Remember, as long as you pretend to know what you are doing, no one will the wiser....

Wedged about 70 pounds of clay today, if I'm to continue to make my own clay I think I'll need a pugmill, and a mixer

    Almost worth it to drive twelve hours....
    I will say though, the Walker is not de-airing.

    I'll need a truck to move it. Not only is it large but I'm sure it's heavy

    Not yet. The centre's kiln failed to reach temperature. Again. Now the kiln techs have agreed with the experts here - new elements needed. So once again, my little kiln will get fired - manana :-)
