If you've been making these pieces for awhile now and have been satisfied with the product, why change now?


In Topic: How To Reverse Baily Pro-50R Wheel?

Don't ALL wheels run clockwise? You mean to tell me I've been throwing BACKWARDS all these years? Will my pots look different if I reverse the direction I throw?

What am I going to do...OH MY! :huh:

In Topic: How Long To Fire A Raku Glaze

From what I can recall of my Ceramics I class, we used a pyrometer and fired the raku kiln to about 1850F and got pretty consistent results. It took about 45 minutes from a cold start.

Love the pieces...particularly the metallic!  What kind of paint are you using. I have some acrylics that are designed for automotive use and cure under heat (like a heat gun).

Hi and welcome juliad,

Since you are into slip casting, are you making your own molds? If so, are you doing the same carving on multiple pieces? If so, you might try laying out an accurate pattern and carving your pattern lines with a sgraffito tool. Then you can make a mold of the carved piece. When you cast your new pieces, the carving lines will already be layed in, providing you with the guide you need to finish the carving. Good luck!
