In Topic: Newbie Help On Buying A Used Pottery Wheel

Yesterday, 07:50 PM

Mug -- a-freaking-men. I had a similar start...minus the chainsaw.

Maybe instead of an 8-week class, ask about a 'try out pottery for a day' option?

In Topic: Kiln Questions

Yesterday, 07:23 PM

Does the plug on the kiln currently fit into your existing dryer outlet? If so, you're probably good to go, but it wouldn't hurt to have an electrician verify everything. You never know when some crazy cracker did a hack DIY job...as a fer-instance, my mother had aluminum wiring in one spot (a fire hazard) and our house came with the wrong size wire on our hot water heater (it went kaput shortly after we moved in, which is how we knew, since the company wouldn't replace the tank until we changed the wire).

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.
