Mizusashi? Shigaraiki?

30 October 2014 - 09:56 AM

Mizusashi attempt, shigariki attempt.
It fits a fist. (Small Asian fist). Not 8.5 glove size fist)
Problem is it leaks. Like all my shigaraiki attempts,
It will get refired. John baymore San says multiple firings may be necessay.....
I can get this back in a train kiln, and/or wait for another anagama firing
? If I refire in gas redux will I lose flashing?
? What if I glaze interior before refire?
? What temp does does feldspar, granite, melt?
? Is parched earth appearance after bisque normal?
? How many days will does shigariki maker fire for?

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

19 September 2014 - 08:04 AM

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?
