Electric Kilns Now Described In Cubic Feet, Why?

26 August 2014 - 09:52 PM

i guess i wasn't watching when this changed.  i cannot even guess what a description stated in cubic feet would look like.  a 7 cubic feet kiln?  lots of math images come to mind, all of them frightening. kilns have ranged in size from the old coffin shaped ones to rounds, decagons, cubes, etc. of various dimensions.  what counts is "can i get it through the door?"  and " will i need new shelves?"  who cares how many cubes will fit inside it?

 

ok, kiln guys, why the change?


Disasterous Firing, Work Looks Salt Fired

18 August 2014 - 10:53 AM

having so many successful firings made me careless and even though i learned this lesson years ago, i still fall for the STUPIDITY OF USING A NEW GLAZE ON LOTS OF POTS !  (well, it wasn't really a new glaze, just a new batch.)  see, i am still trying to talk myself into believing that THIS TIME IT WILL WORK RIGHT.  

 

just took everything out and still trying to analyse  the results.  took pictures, will ask neighbor for help posting them.  

 

will refiring them do any good or do i have a lot of new dog bowls?  A LOT OF THEM! :huh:

? Secret Ingredient In Underglaze?

28 June 2014 - 07:06 PM

I have found two recipes for underglazes.  I have mixed one and blended colors all afternoon only to find that the underglaze I made powders off my greenware.  what is the secret ingredient?  the recipe calls for stain, frit 3134 and a few drops of gum solution.
