Put a space heater in the shed overnight and things firmed up enough to trim for the most part.  Got 8 of them trimmed up, probably gonna toss a few where the lids weren't quite matched up.

Tomorrow I'll be wedging and throwing, don't know what yet, something will strike me!

Yeah, liambesaw, I have a bit of a problem moving from the Hazelnut brown of SC to the 630 white stoneware. Have come to using a cover board over my wedging table to wedge, have to clean out all buckets and such and  have made a second extruder tube for the power caulk gun/extruder. Little things help.

 

best,

Pres

When I ran two color bodies-stoneware and porcelain -I used two wheels two wedging areas and two separate piles of bats.

(toss a few where the lids weren't quite matched up.)

just use a chuck and trim the lids to fit.If its a wider jar well then you need to throw a larger lid.I always write inside with wet finger on lids the metric CM

that way I know what it was.

Wow that's a great idea, I haven't had much luck throwing lids to pots at different times due to the shrinkage, but I will take note on wet size next time!  Man you're a font of knowledge!

What's on my workbench?

Another trip down the rabbit hole.  First tested these glazes in 2014 in an electric kiln.  Gave up as they didn't mature at ^6, and no-one else fires that high and I can't produce enough "test tiles" to fill the kiln.

Off to a wood-firing next weekend, so decided to make some more tests and re-hydrate those glazes.  I'll say hello to the mad-hatter and the rabbit from you all while I'm down there.   Middle photo are some tubes for testing, bottom is "posh" catcher trays to stand the tubes in.  Then we'll only have to wad the bottom of the trays, not all the tubes.

I love your results here, particularly the front left.
