Pres, you gotta love it when the weather cooperates, with your production, and things dry according to your schedule.  The Winter months don't exactly do that here.  

 

I leave things on the bats, until they stiffen  enough, for me to flip them.  Then I let the bottoms dry a bit, before trimming.  After that, I tend to leave them on their rims, until firing.  Mugs may get set right side up, after attaching handles, but then they are usually inverted for signing, and left that way.

pres, please name another movie in which pottery is even mentioned.
 
you might not like it but it gave lots of would-be potters the impetus to start.


Please tell me I am not the only one who pays disproportionate attention to the pots in The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings and netflix's Marco Polo?

 

 

You are not.  I kept looking at the wares in Game of Thrones, thinking, "Hmmm, I wonder what kind of clay body that is?..."

I usually put the new ones in, as soon as I finish taking the old ones out.  I don't even preheat on the lid, and I don't have issues.

 

Much like Chris said, any body that works for Raku, should be able to tolerate quick heating and cooling.

I can't pick which medium I prefer, let alone what process in a given medium.

I like doing both, and use both depending on the project at hand. But since, for the sake of this discussion, I can only choose one, I'll say wheel, because I use it a bit more.

Beatles and Rolling Stones? Are those like music groups or something?...
