TS Studio posted a topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkOur studio has tested small batches of cone 10 black porcelain for oxidation. We have neither the space to store, nor the production rate to justify a full ton minimum order from any of the large scale clay producers. We do not have the equipment to mix ourselves and mixing small batches ourselves by hand is proving to be too time consuming and labor intensive... so we would like help from someone with a mixer to make a medium sized batch of clay. Can anyone recommend any resources or private studios who take medium scale orders for custom clay blends of about ~150-300 lbs? Our recipe uses mason stain #6600, so I imagine it would be helpful for the producer to have an easier to clean bluebird mixer. Thanks for your help! Ps- Quite obviously, we would also be very interested to know of any clay producers that make a true black cone 9/10 clay for OXIDATION firings. I can't find any that are meant for cone 10, just Aardvark's cone 5 "Cassius basaltic".
Hey guys, I have a custom order starting where the client would like 25 units of an existing vessel I have (cup sized pourer), and 25 of a smaller cup to be designed. Both are very minimal, flat slipcast colours, clear glaze. My question is- my existing vessel is $25 each ordinarily and I foresee the cup would be 16-18$ each ordinarily- would normal etiquette be to decrease this price for this larger order and if so by how much? Very newbie question I'm sorry but I'm a little in the dark. Any help would be great. Thanks, J
I have been making medallion mugs for a short time now. By a medallion mug, I mean: rolling out a thin slab, using a round cookie cutter to cut out a small blank medallion, stamping an image (usually a logo) into the blank medallion, attaching it to a leather hard mug. My mugs are OK, but I need to take them to the next level since I am getting some good sized orders. My main problem is getting a nice even edge around the medallion after I attach it. Any suggestions, or better yet, instruction videos out there? I have learned basically by trial and error (mostly error). I tried to post a photo, but this blog will not accept that large of an attachment. Thanks, Jim
