In Topic: Melted The Stands

It's probably your stilts, I never use any stilts on C6 work, it could be your clay.  I  was using a locally made clay when it started warping and slumping at C6 that was slightly over fired.  I questioned my supplier and it turns out that the clay was really a C5  but being sold as a 5/6, I still use it but I understand it's limits.     Denice

In Topic: Qotw: Are You A Thrower Or A Hand Builder?

Definitely a hand builder, thrower on the side.  I just throw enough to keep my hand skills intact, I started with hand building in high school and learned how to throw in college.  Like Paul I am all over the charts with music but when it comes to Rolling Stone versus Beatles the Beatles win hands down.   I just attended a Australian Bee Gees Concert  as good as the Bee Gees and better looking.      Denice

Thank you for the info on the insurance company, I have never sold at a booth just in galleries and consignment shops.  I haven't sold anything for a while and was thinking about  taking some pots to a new consignment shop, it's starting to pile up.  The two galleries I use to sell at closed when the economy got bad here aircraft manufacturing companies leaving and closing.  Other companies are moving into the area now because we have a glut of skilled workers.  I have often wondered if I needed extra insurance when I sold in consignment shops.     Denice

Yeah I kind of freak out to, I just recently replace a favorite black rubber rib it is no longer soft.  I need to replace my 5 gal glaze screen, I keep putting the screen back in with silicone.  The new bucket screens are made with a thin plastic, I have been looking for a better quality one and haven't had any luck.  My ceramic supplier thinks I'm cheap because  I won't buy the crummy replacement screen.   Denice

I have never seen a painted kiln before those are the colors I had my wallpaper store painted in 1981.  What a hoot.      Denice
