In Topic: Porcelain Slab Platters

10 December 2016 - 01:18 AM

I don't know about slab work, but I presume they will need to dry carefully to prevent warping. As for porcelain, It has not been my experience that they don't need to dry any slower than other clay. Porcelain tends to dry faster , so caring for the moisture level just so you are able to complete all of your steps should be sufficient. But do get more opinions on the matter.

May I ask what the firing range of your clay is and what you fired it to? Sounds like a vitrification issue,

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

My green crocs are my uniform

In Topic: Qotw. How Is Your Pottery Community?

08 December 2016 - 10:33 PM

I do not have a physical community here. There are several potters in northern Wisconsin and near Madison but I'm not young/cool enough to jive with the students/ up and coming potters and I'm not experienced enough to be accepted by the experienced collective. There really isn't a place for a middle aged basement mom potter. I did try my local artist guild and they had me on the board, but all they seemed to care about was plen air promotions.

I have several cups that I rotate out. After visiting Simon Levin's studio and eating apple crumble off of a warren Mckenzie plate there, I decided to eventually replace all of my dishes With handmade ones by potters who's work I connect with.
