In Topic: Rehydrating Old Glazes

27 February 2015 - 03:31 PM

Hi, very nice for you to be back playing in the mud.

I have reconstituted dried up glazes by adding water & lots of soaking & mixing but some had large chunks they needed some Epsom salts to break them & restraining. Good luck.

In Topic: Pots Away!

13 February 2015 - 11:42 AM

I got a call in Jan. for 60 mugs & just after got a doctor wanting to do surgery with 4-6 week recovery with another surgery following, yikes! So I stalled the first surgery for a month & got to work. The mugs got glazed yesterday & will decorate today & fire Sunday.

I watch for a little warmer weather as the kiln is in my unheated garage. If they don't all fit I have a small window to do it in April where I can fire more pots that I' ve been frantically throw to fill the next load. Luckily the customer doesn't want the full order til June at the latest.

In Topic: Soak?

29 January 2015 - 11:03 AM

Do,as,TJR says. I have a skutt manual as well, I turn all knobs to Medium & soak for 1/2 to 1 hour. My kiln is in a cold garage so winter gets a longer soak.

In Topic: Ceramic Planters - Cone 6 Or Low Fire?

28 January 2015 - 11:36 AM

I make cone 6 planters for outside, both glazed on the outside & unglazed. I remove most of the soil & plant matter & store them on their side, outside in the winter. So far after 20 years they are still in one piece.
