In Topic: What Was Your Greatest Leap Forward This Year?

10 December 2014 - 09:49 PM

My goal this year was to really get comfortable with mugs and handles.  As soon as I threw that out to the universe, I got a small wholesale account making mugs for a local business!  So this year, I have made a lot of mugs, negotiated 2 wholesale accounts, have my work in 2 local shops and continue to get more orders for different pieces.  It's been a learning year for certain for me and I look forward to next year to continue growth.  Next year's goal??......LIDDED VESSELS!!!  Yes!!  And this forum has contributed to my growth and success! Thanks!

In Topic: Glaze Problem

The only time I had that happen was when I used a cone 10 clay (I didn't know it was) with a cone 5/6 glaze.  It was a  workshop situation.  Hope you can figure it out!

In Topic: Proper Glaze Procedure?

04 December 2014 - 10:06 AM

There must be a lot of Floating Blue versions out there.  The one I use is slightly different.

 

Neph Sy       47.3

Gerstley B.  27

Silica            20.3

EPK              5.4

 

RIO                2

Cobalt Carb   1

Rutile              4

Bentonite        2

 

This recipe came with me from the Community Studio where I started.  I became sort of tired of it so I have turned it into Floating Green, which is a nice change.  But I have to say, if I glaze a piece with Floating Blue, it sells.  What's with that??   People like blue I guess!

In Topic: Bought The Square

I had the Pay Anywhere CC swiper but they kept changing their software and it became rather challenging to use.  I switched to the Square and really like it.  Yes, about half of my business is with CC.   A friend of mine attaches hers to her ipad and enters all of her sales into it.  Cash/check/cc.  That way she knows exactly what was sold.   The only problem I have had with it is limited cell signal (you can take charges offline) won't read a card (you can manually enter a number) and this weird thing with the sales tax that happened last weekend.  I just started over and it was fine.  I think it helps sales.
