writing directly on the bucket with a permanent marker, sharpie, saves losing a paper label.  to change the name on the bucket, spray cheap hairspray on the letters and wipe with a cotton ball, or two for long names.

Yesterday, 04:45 PM

roberta, are you using a lot of water when you throw?  i have seen some of the potters on youtube and they fill a bathtub when making a mug.  cannot understand it. sopping some out with a sponge is totally inadequate if the clay is thoroughly saturated.

is it possible that this is joe's first kiln installation inspection?  is he just afraid of messing up and losing his job over it?  can you contact any of the previous inspectors from the earlier installations to talk to him?  are you using an attitude with him or seeking help from him so you can do this?  


a heat shield, a piece of sheet metal placed between the flue and the beam set up so it does not contact either thing might work to divert the heat from the beam.  i did this when installing a woodstove in my previous house.  two 4x8 sheets of steel hung 8 inches behind the stove. the wall behind it never even got warm.
