In Topic: Kiln Vent On Or Off?

Today, 01:05 AM

I turn the vent off as soon as a glaze load is completed......I let the kiln cool on it's own.  I don't worry about it so much with a bisque load.  But yeah, I turn it off upon completion....save on the fan, electricity, and noise!

In Topic: Materials For ^6 Copper Red Oxidation

Yesterday, 11:33 AM

 

John Britt lists a handful of copper red oxidation recipes in his The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes.  page 103.  Frits are of the common variety . . . 3110, 3124, 3134; silicon carbide mesh is 600.

 

Looks like I have even more reason to grab that book now!

 

you will love the book.  So worth the money!

Evelyne, give yourself some time.  The healing will happen.

 

Last week, I rolled some leaves into clay that I was making into buttons.  I saved leaves/ferns/etc from the summer/fall and froze them in ziploc bags.  I have been mesmerized by the patterns the snow is creating in the branches of trees, how it drifts and the patterns of the animal prints, jackrabbits, cottontails, deer, elk, neighbors cats......it's the first thing I look for each morning.

OOOOoooo We have sooooo much snow right now, and it has been rather cold....I have been thinking about spring/summer projects.....a summery tile project might be just the ticket!!!
