In Topic: New Sales Studio Now Open In Merritt Bc

Great TV piece, and display/ sales space. It looks very nice, and it sounds like you were able to put it together without breaking the beak, via smart spending and dealing.
I like how you used the mosaic countertop, as a potential method for future comissions.

One small hang up I noticed, I would recommend you shy away from the copyrighted subject matter. I saw the ware, with the Tweety Bird on it, and things like that could open you up for litigation.
Yes, there are endless amounts of people who sell such things on Etsy. I would tell them the same thing. I have seen some of those same sellers charged with litigation, and given cease and desist letters. In one case, Taylor Swift sent such a letter to a seller, because they were selling items with a lyric or lyrics to one of her songs.
No sense in putting yourself through that.

Otherwise,meverything else looked great.

Best of luck in this sales season.

In Topic: Do You Eat Off Your Own Pots Everyday ?

Heck no, I'm not using that poorly made, potentially toxic crap!!!...

Seriously though, I use a few mugs I have made over the years. I used to use the first mugs and bowls I made in college, but they are a bit too heavy, and awkwardly shaped to use anymore.

In Topic: What Is This? Is This Mold?

Welcome to the forum.

So would you say the kiln brick got wet? If so, you'll want to make sure it's dry before firing, and give the electic components a good check as well.

With that said, firing the kiln will indeed burn off the mold,mand is a better option than scraping the kiln brick.

Looks great! 


Glad you go the roof on, before the snow.  We are supposed to get a slightly earlier than normal bit of snow here today.  Won't be as much as you have though...


Looks like you have a great view there as well!

In Topic: What Kind Of Sponge Do You Use When You Are Throwing?

20 November 2015 - 09:34 AM

I mainly use the cheapy, round, yellow, cellulose sponge.  I did by a Mudtools white finishing sponge, that I use for just that.  I use it to smooth the surface, when finishing up, and rounding rims, and foot rings.


I have a hand me down elephant ear sponge, that my Dad gave me from his ceramic days, which was in the '70s.  It's starting to wear through in a couple spots, so it doesn't get used much.
