In Topic: How Do You Mark/sign Your Work?

20 March 2017 - 11:41 AM

I had a silver ring made with my family coat of arms that eventually got worn, so now I sign my initials with a long nib ball point pen. I do have a stamp of the same but it's soft & sometimes the clay isn't.

In Topic: What's Your Favorite Clay To Work With?

I use a mixture of Plainsman medium fire clays, like 390, 340 & 340 speckled. I find my mixture of the 3 is a more stable throwing body and the speckles are reduced.

I take the ring off & forget it in the studio. I make sure to put it on the ring holder or I'd never find it & I forget to put it back on always.

It's permanent, I use the underglaze pens & have the refill that would be used in the pad. I've used it to sign the bottom of pots where no glaze is applied.

In Topic: Wheel Speed When Trimming

Medium speed on mugs & similar size pots which seem to be the norm for me lately. The kick wheel is gone but I loved using it for trimming, kick & let it roll.
