Zetex Plus it is.

Marcia,I really enjoyed your video. I've never seen the Raku process on that work that large. Do you have other videos on YouTube?

Again, thanks.  I'll follow Mark's advice and Dirt Poor's example (well, I hope I won't burn up the gloves!).  And thanks for the coupon tip!

Thanks, all of you.


Dirt Poor: I was pretty impressed at how high a temperature the Galeton gloves can handle - 2,000 briefly, 1500 continuously.   Jawpot's comments about considering how long before flexibility and heat protection start to degrade makes me wonder how those Galetons are holding up for you?


Mark, do I understand correctly that the Kevlar Cono-Guard gloves that you use the most are less protection against heat than the leather welding gloves?  My leather welding gloves are like these at Axner ( http://www.axner.com...s-set-of-2.aspx), and in the 60 or so seconds that it takes to rearrange a pot or sculpture in the fire or to lift it out, my hands get REAL uncomfortable!!

Thanks, Bruce and Marcia.  I have Googled everything that could be remotely related to the subject, but no luck.  And Bruce, how clever of you to have found that.  I tried, but failed.  Jean, who was nice enough to share the clip the first time, messaged me that she'd tried to open the link today with no luck.  I got the same results.


As it turned out, a day with zero chance of precipitation turned into a rainy day.  Gotta build a shed for these "Best laid plans" outdoor firing days....
