In Topic: Qotw: What Can We Find Under Your Table?

Today, 05:09 PM

I haven't geared up yet from my travels, but here are some views. My two large tables are the same height, one is on wheels. The stable one has a shelf underneath with plaster molds and beneath that is clay and glaze storage mostly on wheels. Under the wheeled table is a large shelf with a big mold, foam, plastic. Under the slab roller is more clay storage and a litter box.

In Topic: Treadle Versus Electric Wheel - Any Advice Please?

Treadles wheels can be very soothing but I think it may be physically taxing because of standing constantly. I would take your dead wheel to an appliance repair shop. It is either a fuse, switch, motor, and pedal. Some repairmen are really amazing.

I don't know about manganese in terra Cotta. The terra cotta I have mixed uses Newman red clay or Redart. 

Iron bearing clay will darken glazes even in a high fire.

Shines do different things at different thicknesses...and atmospheres. Use this firing as tests.
