"The Veil of Naivete"

I feel this happen often. I believe it is because I am still a beginning potter, only 3 1/2 years under the wheel. I also work mostly in isolation. When I do take a workshop or class I have many aha moments as I see and learn how others do things. I am so envious of those with opportunities to learn from others. Just being able to watch someone else work can be enlightening.

I happen to know a rice farmer. Maybe I should look into this. You only want the husk?

In Topic: What Do You Get Out Of This Forum Interaction?

I really think I may have given up on pottery without this forum. In the beginning I had numerous equipment issues. This forum was my only source of help. (Didn't get any from the local community studio). Through this forum I met others who understand a passion for clay. Most inspiring are the older potters who are still throwing. It fills me with endless hope for many years of productivity.

In Topic: Kiln Vent Operation

Thanks for the idea Mark. I already add a tube of the superglue to my studio tool box. Eight days since the cut. Still not throwing. I cut through the side of my thumb down to the bone. My whole thumb is still swollen and throbbing. It has worked out though. Two of my kids developed pneumonia (third one got up sick this morning) so I wouldn't have been in the studio anyway.

In Topic: Gloss Going Matt

I have a couple of glazes that will go from glossy to matte if over fired by a cone.  I would retest in your large kiln.
