Basement used to be bedroom, wood shelving around the walls, 2 wheels beside the shelves, wedging table & pug mill all with just enough room. Sink is out side the studio across from the furnace, on the long wall is washer/dryer then glazing shelves with glazes in pails along the floor & under the shelves & on rollers just room enough to squeeze by another person while glazing. The kiln is in the garage. Fire to cone 6/7.
I have a window.

I've used several methods throughout the years from signing with an older long tip pen to a stamp. I also had a ring with my coat of arms which I had made into a rubber stamp. I have reverted back to the long nibbled pen.

In Topic: Do You Teach To Throw Off The Hump?

One problem I've found in teaching students to throw off the hump is a lack of the student compressing the bottoms properly & as a result the bottoms crack in drying &/or firing.
