In Topic: How To Get Rid Of Clay And Glaze Slops?

29 August 2016 - 08:27 AM

I use the barrel system also but my first line of defense is the dish pan in my sink.  I let the clay settle every night and pour the clear water down the drain into the barrel system where it settles again through a three barrels and then into the sump pump.  When the dish pan starts to fill up I dump it in a field across the street since it is just clay. When I  am glazing I use a different dish pan in my sink I do the same settling procedure except for the final step I put the glaze gunk in a bucket to let dry.  Then I take the bucket to the hazardous waste recycle station.  Denice

You can always you the 5gal barrel method, put 4 ounces of water in the bag and tie it up.  Put it in the 5gal bucket and fill it with water, the water pressure will force that moisture into the clay.  I have rejuvenated some pretty dry clay this way.   Denice

In Topic: Anti-Fatique Matts

I have used anti fatigue mats for 20 years, my studio is laid out in a big rectangle so I have a pathway of them.  I have always had bad feet so these are a lifesaver.  If it wasn't for anti fatigue mats I probably would still be working in clay.   Make sure you buy plenty for the area you are covering,  I had to replace some and the other brand didn't quite fit so I did some trimming.   Denice

Being a old hippie I have been thinking about hanging a sign over my studio door that says "Denice's Pot Shop" just for fun.   Denice
