Your pots from your first firing are amazing - and then they get even better.  My favorite is the mug on the right in the top row of your new work.  It has a relaxed, carefree air while the one to the left is more stern and serious, keeping an eye on that young punk to the right who doesn't know how dangerous the world can be - made me laugh.  Congratulations.

In Topic: How To Paint A Commercial Tile And Refire For Durability

I forgot to mention that my friend did not transfer the photographs to the bowls and plates but developed simple line drawings from the photos and used these as the basis for his china painting.  Thus, art by local artist.

If your wife opts for china painting she does not have to stop at tiles.  I have a friend who bought assorted white plates and bowls, took photographs of local beach scenes - pier, lifeguard station, passing bicycle riders and used these images to decorate the recycled ware.  They sold very well at a gift shop located on the pier - as art by local artist.  He quite enjoyed the project. 

In Topic: Troubleshooting Pacifica Wheel

Anatoosh if your wheel is new the dealer should really be expected to help you solve the problem.  But, if you can't get help from them call Laguna (800 452-4862) and if possible speak to Sergio at Extension 207.  When one of the belts on my Pacifica broke I was advised to replace all 4, I talked to Sergio who was a tremendous help.  A wonderful old guy (almost as old as me) who assured me that I could certainly replace them myself and when I drove to Laguna (Califormia) to pick up the replacement belts he had even set up a little demo in the warehouse, showing me how to do it - from removing the remaining old belts to replacing with the new ones.  I hope Laguna realizes what a treasure Sergio is he really knows his business and would, I'm sure, diagnose your problem and tell you how to fix it.

Pugaboo's article looks like the one I was thinking of - but what guage wire?  Can hardly wait to get started for replying, thanks, Joan.
