In Topic: Anyone Else Interested Or Know Anything About Firing Leopard Spot Shinos?

Coyote Clay & Color makes a ^6 Leopard Shino that gets black spots when layered over a black gloss. Results are...unpredictable, though.

In Topic: Does Temperature Of Clay Matter When Throwing?

I've seen some previously frozen clay that had fractured. If I wedge it does it go back to normal?

My clay freezes every winter. I wedge it up (after it's thawed, of course) and it's fine for my purposes, but I know people who pug it if it has frozen/thawed.

In Topic: Glaze Not Uniformly Glossy On Cone 04 Body

I've had that problem when I've brushed on glazes and inadvertently made them uneven. Usually I get matte areas where the glaze was thinner, but this sounds like maybe you are having issues where the glaze is thicker?


If your 2-coated pieces are fine, 4 coats might just be too much.

In Topic: Standard 266

We were just talking about 266 the other day at our local pottery meeting -- the studio started doing bisque firing at ^05 rather than ^06 because otherwise the 266 would bloat during the ^6 firing. The hotter bisque prevents the bloating.

Masonite does warp but will warp back flat as well.I just do not like the warping


I have quite a few masonite bats that have warped....how does one "un-warp" a masonite bat??
