In Topic: Throwing Grainy Rough Clays

Yesterday, 11:46 AM

Welcome Marcello!

Some people actually enjoy throwing clays with some grog in them ... I like them myself and have not had any issues with cuts. The grog is not usually sharp but smooth. Granted, if you added grog yourself you would have to be careful of the kind you chose.
Sorry, I don't know what glaze that is.

Thanks Pres for the "revisiting a theme" phrase ... So much more interesting than "copying myself".
You know your art speak! : - )

Thanks Marcia for the encouragement ... I appreciate it.

I love Benzine's image of having caught my own tail and not knowing what to do next!

I'll fire them and see what they look like.

Yes, she is so fond of lawyers and the cover your tush attitude they create ....

This detour is another great reason for having a written plan, a road map.
When you catch yourself wandering down these blind alleys, they show you how to get back on track.

After spending three years working from a basement, I decided to have my studio upstairs when we built our new home. I took over a bedroom ... deleted the closet, added two more windows, water, industrial carpet and cabinets. I have hauled tons of clay up and down those stairs for many years ... it is totally worth it to work up in the trees.


Another bedroom is my office and still another is the packing/storage room.


The garage holds three electric kilns ... two large Skutts and a small test kiln ... that is also where I throw, make molds, spray glazes ... any dirty work can be easily cleaned up with a garden hose hooked up in my work area. The shelves near the kiln are the same size as the ones in my studio and since they are not attached I can easily move work back and forth on them.




My husband claims I am slowly taking over the whole house, but loves it at tax time!
