The toothpicks will swell as they absorb water from the clay which might cause problems.

In Topic: How High Did I Fire?

I'm not going to crab at you because I have done these kinds of things too.


My guess would be about Cone 6. 

Since Cone firing is a combination of time and temp it is anyone's guess what temp you were at.


It would be cheaper and much less stressful to buy witness cones instead of firing by the seat of your pants time after time ...

but you know that already!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D

Can we add sales in churches to the "just don't" list?
Yes, I was approached, the table price was a little too good, and I don't even want to talk about the "social media campaign. "

Also add ... Anything that needs to be approved by a committee.

Not necessarily. If you get a circumstance as you described earlier ... where you take the time and energy to let people know you are there, promote it multi times a day through social media and are on site for the entire months of November and December, then I think it could be successful with the right management.
By this I would mean NOT artist managed.
Sorry artists, but few of us are good at managing groups or operating in an unemotional business fashion.
A great idea for a mall show would be a revolving group of artists keeping the kiosk fresh and exciting ... Some might be good for weeks while others might sign on for a week or several days. Definitely heavy on the under 35 group who manage social media like a second nature so would be tweeting, texting and insta gramming with uploads to Utube all the time.
