In Topic: Birdhouse In Chinese Red

27 June 2016 - 09:01 AM

Nice bird house, right now I have wrens that live in my honeysuckle vine and make a mess all over a bench.  They love the grape jelly that I feed the orioles.  I wonder If I made them a birdhouse if they would move into it.   Denice

In Topic: Help! I Can't Center Anymore!

Are you releasing the tension in your hands before you move them,  I find that if I don't it will throw it off center.  I have also noticed that the really good throwers have a lot of upper body strength.   Denice

In Topic: Ventilation System Needed?

23 June 2016 - 08:11 PM

I have a small test kiln in my kiln room, it isn't ventilated like my big kilns.  I just open the window a few inches,  I do have a exhaust fan in the ceiling that I also run.  If it is really cold outside I leave the window closed and run the exhaust fan. I never smell any fumes from it.  Denice

In Topic: How Many People Here Subscribe To Magazines Like Ceramics Monthy, Studio Pott...

22 June 2016 - 08:45 AM

I haven't subscribed to any magazines for a while, Ceramics Monthly I started taking in the early 70's and took it off and on for the next 30 years when I could afford it.  I have also tried subscriptions to other ceramic magazines such as PMI or Clay Times.  My problem is that when I see new methods or style I want to try it and it pulls me away from my current work.  I did donate most of my old magazines to a nearby high school so they found a good home.   Denice

If your working in the C5/6 range I would try Laguna's B-Mix, in the Cone 04 a white earthenware clay.   Denice
