In Topic: Qotw: What Can We Find Under Your Table?

27 April 2016 - 10:36 AM

Such organized studios,  the underside of my work tables has a organic feel,  the stuff is creeping outwards.  Mostly I have boxes of tile and buckets of clay and chemicals.  It's amazing how much I have stuffed in there, I have a full 5'x6' mural in 3 tupperware tubs, a large box of roofing tiles that I made for mail box, and 4 tool boxes with art supplies.  This doesn't include the weird stuff like a satellite dish, big spool of twine or the wooden cow yoke I kept to make a sign out of. Being a old hippie I am going to call my studio "Denice's  Pot Shop".   Denice

Reds are hard to get at Cone 6 since you are doing beads why don't you work with a earthenware and use low fire glaze which have great reds.  Denice


In Topic: Need Advice On Buying A Used Kiln

I would recommend you take a pottery class and ask to help to load, fire and unload the kiln.  Teachers are always happy to have the help and it will give you a lot of confidence when it comes to your own firings.  Denice

Like Roberta I turn mine off when the firing is done so it won't cool so fast.  Denice

I am like Matthew I like to keep track of my needle tools don't want to get stuck.  To keep track of my cut off wires I put cup hooks on the wall close to my wheel.  Denice
