In Topic: First Time Mixing Glaze

11 March 2015 - 01:48 PM

Does anyone know what sort of mesh a permanent cone coffee filter is?  I picked one up for a dollar or so, thinking I might use it on small test runs of glaze.  Can't find any information on the mesh size on google.  Like this:coffee_filter.jpg .

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/
