I have a question, I have a stepdaughter that is starting her own ceramic studio. She's making Christmas trees. How do I prevent glaze from going in the holes? If they are glazed over how do I clear them period of tried using diamond tips dremmel, I've tried using grinding bits. But the ceramic keeps chipping or the bit wears out after one use. What speed do i set the bit to?
So, I am making these large bowls that have holes drilled in the bottom, inside the foot ring. The purpose is to drain liquid from fruit, salad, veggies etc. I have been using an electric drill to make said holes. The problem is, that in the drying, because there are holes across the bottom, there is a weakness and some of them crack. No matter how slowly I dry these bowls, some of them crack. Any thoughts, solutions? TJR.
I bought an old Shimpo RK-2 wheel a while ago for my garage and have a hard time centering on it. I don't have that problem on the Bailey wheel I have in our studio. I thought it was just me until I realized that the pins on the Shimpo are different distances from the edge of the head causing the bats to look like they're moving back and forth. So even though bats fit just fine, a portion of the bat actually hangs over the head farther than the rest of the bat. I imagine the obvious solution would be to not use a bat and throw directly on the head, which I'm uncomfortable doing, but to fix this, should I drill new pin holes and make sure each hole is exactly the same distance from the edge of the wheel head? Or does it matter? I've never done this and I'm a bit leery about drilling into it.
