In Topic: Kaolin Substitutions

Thanks so much for the info!!  Today I was mixing some glaze tests and there was mention of both grolleg and EPK within some of my test recipes.  EPK I have so that went into the glazes.  Then I came in to 'do my research' via a question placed on this forum!  I'm glad others have the same questions I do and it makes me feel good to know that I have a forum to get answers to my questions.

I thought I had it in a tight lidded jar - obviously not.  Glad it is cheap!  Here I was hoping there was an easy way to rehab it.  Gosh now I have another reason to head to Continental Clay!  What a hardship that will be  :>)  . Thanks for the quick responses.

What a wonderful video!  Your love of clay ,flows over into your love for each other and shows in your work.  Thanks for sharing your video - I took my first sculpting class this winter, but have not had time to create more sculpture since, but I think your video (and seeing your work) may have given me a bit of inspiration!  Thanks!



In Topic: Knitting Bowls

Thanks for the info - will try my cone 6 clay and working thicker. 


Bowls I have seen here have been thin walled but I can see that the thickness and lower temp will create less stress and more strength.  Guess it's time to throw some more bowls rather than trim what I made today.  Min - thanks for your picture.  I have put in more carving - perhaps that adds to my problem too. 


Ask questions - it is a good way to learn - and many have helpful answers here.


Thanks everyone!
