#105855 Terracotta Clay Is So Messy ----

Posted by Marcia Selsor on 28 April 2016 - 02:24 PM

I love terra cotta. I don't find it messy. I love the building power in a good groggy terra cotta. 

If you was the color , I agree, just add the mason stain.

#105177 Qotw: As A Discerning Potter, When And Why Do You Buy Handmade Pottery?

Posted by Marcia Selsor on 13 April 2016 - 09:13 AM

I buy pieces usually from the makers I know. I like to have a piece of the work with me because I like them. Our strongest work shares our souls. I like to have those souls in close contact. As Chris says, I was lucky to live near Archie Bray 280 miles...but they brought their Christmas sale to Billings. I have a great collection from there, too.

Nice post. I saw that earlier today on Facebook. I also liked this link. I think it describes more the persons of certain potter types by their choice of firing processes.

#104723 Kiln Shelves And Stilts

Posted by Marcia Selsor on 05 April 2016 - 07:43 AM

mine is 1/2 -1 inch on the bigger kilns. I put the shelf on the floor in my test kiln that is 9 x 10 interior. I meant to add...my larger kilns have elements in the floor. I have rarely used them, but if I need to, I can do that with the raised shelf.

I recently posted about Antoinette Badenhort's use of a wall hanging shoe storage for tools. I cut one up and hung one 1/3 section for brushes, one with 2 courses for by my wheel, and one over by my tiny wheel that is set up with a diamond grinding wheel where I use it for storing things like safety glasses, kiln glasses, work gloves, , etc.

#104605 Stool Height

Posted by Marcia Selsor on 02 April 2016 - 08:17 AM

We are all built differently. It helps if your stool makes your pelvis support the back.I copied Pietro's design at La Meridiana for my stool. It also has storage.
