Beautiful work! Hey it getting more and more mainstream every day. I think another prohibition is pretty much dropping by the wayside.

Hey ShellS, welcome aboard.

 

You mentioned self taught but not your level. You just getting started in clay or are you an old pro?

 

Its great that you decided to post. Now this place is more than an entertainment or research tool, we're your pottery friends. Even though we don't see each other face to face we are all just hanging out BSing about pottery much like any group of potters would and if you hit a snag you can get immediate help from some pretty heavy hitters.

 

Wish I could roll with a group like this in the real world :-)

... And won't I be thrilled if I start a young person on the road of a wonderful clay journey that lasts a lifetime.

nah, they will do it until they are 22 and then come back to it when they are 50. Then it will last the rest of a lifetime :rolleyes:


In Topic: Making Pottery Or Metalsmithing

whatever u guys do, do not mix glass and pottery. I have seen several instruction sheets on it and I contacted THE major art glass company and they made it clear that it will not work no matter what others say. Their glass is not compatible with pottery and just because it appears to work in time it will likely fail. Not, it may fail but it will likely fail. They said they have tried to get the word out but the folks that are pushing it will not stop. One of the biggest concerns is that someone will put it in something like a bowl and glass will shiver off into someone's food but glass separating from pottery in any form during use or display could be a huge problem.

I know its often hard to separate but really after a short period of time passes the fact that you spent $100 or $600 becomes a non issue but the kiln will be with you for a very long time. I would first decide exactly what you want in a kiln and then try and find a bargain in that kiln.
