Topics I've Started

Spot On Bisque

15 June 2017 - 05:12 PM

I had about 50 mugs in the kiln.  Bisque load, speckled buff, Laguna, fired to 04.  There were 3 mugs that had spots like this on them.  It's almost pitted.  It looks like iron or something.  Any thoughts?

Kudos To Chris Campbell

I hope you all have a moment to check out Chris's article in Pottery Making Illustrated on throwing with colored clay.  I really liked the detailed diagrams.   Thanks Chris for sharing!   I was wondering if the pots on page 40 had a clear glaze on them?  If not, is that something you would do? 



Gallery/co-Op Protocol

11 December 2016 - 10:52 AM

I have my work in a small gallery 40 miles south of me.  I work 2 days a month.  It's rather fun, getting to know new people, and even though sales can be slow, it has brought me some new interest from other customers.   The manager is working on getting a website up and working and said she would put a link to everyone's business website on the Gallery website.  I asked her if that meant we would have to pay commission to the gallery if someone went through the gallery site to buy something off our website.  She said yes.  She said they would know how many hits our site had but it would be the honor system if someone purchased.  Is this a standard practice?  Just wondering........



Website Ads On Your Website

31 October 2016 - 10:05 AM

I got an email from a ceramic supplier this morning offering commission from them if a person puts their ads on your website.  5% commission.   If you had a lot of traffic on your site, that could add up nicely.  I think we all have gotten pretty used to the ads that pop up everywhere, including our email, but part of me thinks that would be distracting on your personal website.....just thought I would ask.  And no, I don't have a website yet.  Still busy making pots! ;)

Maybe this should be a QOTW?



New To Wood Firing

30 July 2016 - 10:48 AM

I am pretty excited.....I have been firing electric cone 6 for 5 years and my clay guy invited me to put some pieces on a shelf for a wood firing in September!   I have some cone 10 clay.  He said I can use his slips and glazes.  What else do I need to know??
