In Topic: Firing of pots with cracks made with Sodium Silicate

Today, 10:22 AM

Fire it in anything you want.... no issues.

 

The clay that has a lot of sodium silicate on it can cause issues in the RECLAIM department.  If I screw it up (rarely anymore) .... I just discard that clay.

Oh, so much to learn. :unsure: Is there a ballot?

 

In the print issue of Potters Pages that you will recieve later in the winter will be candidate statements for the slate of candidates and also the voting ballot. There will also be a link sent to the Potters Council membership (those in good standing.... so check your dues) for online voting.

You can just bring me over there and I'll build you a nice big anagama. All you need is about $100,000 US. ;)

Min,

 

That actually will increase the alumina and silica content in the fired melt slightly due to the LOI on the calcining process (the weight of H2O will not be there in the weighing process). While it might fix application problems, it might also change the surface of the fired glaze.
