Can you stack kilns?

16 November 2012 - 07:04 PM

Ok, so I found two kilns that fire the same. They are the smaller ones that come in sections. This might be a dumb question but could I stack them to have a taller kiln? Just a thought. Any feedback is appreciated.

What's the best potters wheel on a budget?

04 October 2012 - 05:30 PM

What is the best type of potters wheel to get on a budget? I need to get a motorized one, but I don't know much about them. I'll be doing about 50lb projects or so. Also, when getting a used one, what are things to look for as far as being wrong with it? I just want to make sure I'm not missing something if I can get a used one. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

Any great handbuilding DVDs to recommend?

Hi. I was wanting to take a handbuilding class this summer, but due to the heat not being my friend, I am unable to. So now I am on the search for some great instructional DVDs. I'm more of a visual learner, which is why I'm looking for DVDs and not books. Since throwing is not my friend either, I'm looking for handbuilding ones, and any others that are useful to a beginner. I don't have a fortune to spend, so please keep that in mind. Thank you for any of your comments.

How did you get started?

Hi everyone. I'm just starting out making pieces to fire and sell and feeling a little overwhelmed. I've always loved playing with clay but never had a kiln until now. I'm teaching myself as I go along, taking it step by step, absorbing all the info that I can. I was just wondering how others have started out and if they have any helpful tips for a beginner. Thanks in advance!
