In Topic: Firing Flowers

Today, 10:23 AM

I made a bunch of calla lily type flowers for a mural, since they were white on white.  I use a white glaze for the inner part and a clear on the out side especially thin on the underside.  I had some old brittle elements that I broke up and used as stilts.  Didn't need to do any grinding, fired to Cone 5.  Potter

In Topic: Studio Clean Up Question ( Wheel Throwing )

When  I first started throwing I used a lot of water, my second professor taught us how to throw with very little water.  It was wonderful, I felt like I had more control and very little clean up.  Denice

In Topic: Pottery Knowledge Quiz Of The Week (Pkqw): Week 3

4,3,3,1  Question number two is a little tricky it could be a Fusion Button but is requires a crucible and more technical experience.  I think test tile is a straight forward answer for a student.    Denice

In Topic: Qotw: Do You Like Innies Or Outies?

Ron I don't see any controversy here I see fun.  It depends on the form whether it is a innie or a outie, right now I am doing innes.  Pots with lids do take longer to make but are worth it.  A lid adds class, style, interest, function, and design.  If you watch people looking at a collection of pottery they are immediately drawn to the one with the lid which they have to pick up.   Denice

In Topic: Robin Hopper & John Glick Have Passed Away

07 April 2017 - 08:21 PM

I met Robin Hopper at NCECA in Fort Worth, Texas.  There was a big line of people checking in to the hotel and we both decided to retreat to a sofa in the lobby.  I was still in school and wasn't real familiar with his work.  When he introduced himself  I said Oh I have read your book, he said how did you like it?   Taken aback about meeting him I said it was OK,  he just smiled and we went our separate ways. I know that he has been ill for a long time, I am glad he isn't suffering anymore.   Denice
