Splash Pan Liner And Trimmings Catch

Today, 08:37 AM

This is the greatest invention for wheels that I have seen in a long time at NCECA.

I hope it is ok to post here because I am excited about it. It didn't fit my bailey wheel but it will fit Brents and Shimpos I think.

It is a simple plastic liner with and additional sheet for catching trimmings. We have had lots of discussions about this.

Shinos

09 March 2017 - 10:26 PM

I am reading John Britt's latest writing on Shinos. Extremely well written and well explained. I am preparing for a wood firing opportunity and am looking at some possibilities. We have to glaze our work before we arrive. I am getting a great understanding of how shines have developed over the last 40 years. Our master, John Baymore has an awesome tea bowl with an unbelievable Shino crawl glaze. So, I am reading and considering how to adapt to wood firing by cutting back on the spar. Great reading for a snowy night.
John Britts 53 page dvd is called Golden Shino. Wonderful examples presented and history of people's glaze development from old friends like Malcom Davis and Frank Boyden. Just enjoying the read.

Ceramic Wall Panel Heaters

11 February 2017 - 11:40 AM

I have to share these heaters.
Antoinette Badenhorst had these in her studio. I really liked them. I have 5 in my studio which is 10% more than was recommended for my space of 560 sq ft, insulated.
They are convection heaters, no blowers. 400W each. Fantastic. 8-18 inches is the recommended height from the floor. Due to a concrete footing on my walls, I mounted them to plywood with an insulated backing for the outside walls. They take a while to heat up. Antionette's husband , Koos, recommended leaving them on constantly. I'll see what my next bill looks like.Koos even mentioned mounting on cabinets. They seem really great. No plumbing or wiring necessary. They plug into the wall socket. They come with all the mollie bolts, bolts, caps, and a drill bit for installation. wires running cool.They cost $54 -45 each.
Very satisfied. I have my wheel sitting between 2 on the outer wall. I wanted a view out the window. They are about 6 feet on either side of my wheel. They should not be mounted under window, next to a door or close to an open stairway in order to run efficiently.
