In Topic: Electric Vs Gas Firing - Surface Look - Clothes Or Skin

This past weekend, I surprised yet another gas firer when she asked, "this is all reduction fired right?" and I said "No it's all cone six electric."

Although I will respectfully disagree with Neil that borates are the problem with cone 5-6 glazes. I love gerstley borate. I think the problem is Zircopax. Makes such flat colored glazes yuck.

In Topic: I'm Trying Not To Be Angry But

I'm sorry this happened to you Stephen. You have every right to be angry. After reading the correspondence from the show organizers, I would not bother reaching out to them. I would just drop them like a hot potato. It's clear that art was not their main focus, and they don't care how much they impacted you. When organizers do things THIS weird and dumb, they aren't going to be around for long. Focus your energy on your remaining shows.

Thanks Neil. I'm not happy with my flexible metal duct because they wear out so fast. Will definitely give this a try.

Some people have orange aprons. Some of us have orange crocs.

In Topic: Instagram

I've decided to start using Instagram. So far I've already spent way too much time looking at other potter's posts! Must be careful not to do that everyday.

I know I've stated in the past that I don't think social media is very effective at generating sales. But my ultimate goal for Instagram is not for selling pots. My Instagram posts will be different from my Facebook posts. I want to show a close-up, behind-the scenes peek of a full-time pottery studio. The good, the bad, and the boring.
