Topics I've Started

Teaching ..stressed....

08 October 2014 - 10:47 PM

I started teaching @ a guild/ public studio.
I teach a basic class
I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed,?!?!

My 2 hour class takes me at least 4 hours.
Just when I feel like I'm underwhelmed 2 new students show up...
I keep telling admin. No new students unless they schedule 1class private semi private to get them caught up.
Sometimes adults are worse than 12 year olds.
I'm trying to get everyone thinking for themselves.... It's the ones that need spoon feeding that drain me.
Not many utilize open studio time?!
The list goes on.

I need not to feel overwhelmed

Good thing I have a few stars. That listen... Follow directions. And get it...

Laguna Pacifica Wheel Gt 400

I may be getting one of these at good price. It's an older one with the 4 round "belts" and from what I'm told is the older pedal design. The belts need replacing. Which I've already sourced.

Any opinions / comments on this wheel?

Custer Chips?

18 August 2014 - 09:51 PM

I bisqued/calcined, come custer chips, in order to make smaller bits for inclusion in clay body for woodfire.
In an attempt to make a shigariki like clay.


There are some dirty bits in the feldspar chips


Some of these bits melted/ sintered at bisque temp, melting to a porcelain bowl


What are these dirty bits?
how do remove these dark bits?

I imagined the feldspar chips would have been cleaner.
