In Topic: Coloring B-Mix 5 Clay With Copper Carbonate

01 June 2015 - 01:11 PM

You are in the midwest like me, and if your weather has been anything like mine, the humidity is making it impossible for me to recycle clay in my normal time frame. . . might just be the weather. Don't know anything about the coloring. . . 


In Topic: Qotw: Do You Still Have Your First Piece?

This is my first piece - made in a hand building ceramics class in college. . . It is a pinch pot made out of terra cotta and has engobe and clear glaze. I have used this as my pen cup through every job I have had since college.
I love it tremendously  :wub: even if it is really wonky.

I woud literally sell one of my kidneys on the black market for a de-airing pug mill. Santa is taking his time about it. :D

I wish pug mills made real pugs... ;)

 

Perhaps you could apply for a grant to purchase a mixer pug mill - your work and story are compelling. 

 

 

Also I have heard good things about Kickstarter helping people purchase larger equipment they couldn't afford right away

I have used standard's English Porcelain 365 - which fires to a ^6 - quite white and strong -- absorption should be less than 1% at ^6 - I have thrown with it and hand built but only about 50 lbs - so no extensive experience with it.

I have not had any glazes fail on it.
