In Topic: Trying To Find A Square Plate Mould

12 December 2014 - 02:03 PM

I have used some purchased square glass plates (with no foot ring) as hump molds; you just have to treat the surface and watch like a hawk for the right time to remove the slab from the mold.

These kinds of hangers are practically invisible.  (Weight obviously an issue.)

In Topic: Tenmoku Leaf Bowl Question

I gave this a try with fresh young birch leaves (very thin), layered onto fresh tenmoku glaze.  However, the areas with the leaves turned out as completely naked clay after the firing!

Last time I heard about Rovin... was in the 60's I think. They are still around, huh. And Mat and Dave I never heard about.... small place?

Oh boy, now your in trouble ^_^

 

Matt from Matt and Dave's clay is Matt Katz, who moderated clay and glaze technical before you. They’ve only been around a few years, still working on expanding I presume.

Rovin opened in 1957 and is on its third set of owners. They've stayed fairly local.

 

I think they went out of business, unfortunately.    http://www.mattanddavesclays.com/
