In Topic: Help Me Identify These Bricks

26 November 2015 - 05:59 PM

Thanks to Mark for placing a piece of my brick in his kiln. The bricks will hold up to temps of cone 11.

So, would you make a salt kiln with 8" hard brick walls and floor? Or would you make a kiln with with IFB chamber walls?

How much more does it cost to fire a hard brick kiln vs IFB lined kiln?

Some of my glazes are very touchy if they are thick.  They crack and fall off if applied too thick.  Try thinning a bit especially with that much Mg carb.

Are you going give her 13 plates and extra bowls.  Or will you sell the extras separately.  They really look great.

In Topic: Tree Fishing Season-A Bit Off Topic But Clay Related

One waits  for the right season when fish are thick and then hangs in a tree as most fish do not notice humans hanging in trees.


You should try ice fishing . . . much safer...

Tried it and couldn't get the ice to bite. I even put cream on the hook......No luck.

Now my dad was a great fisherman. One evening we were fishing below Whiskeytown reservior, not too far from Mark's neck of the woods. He was fly fishing and went to whip the fly into the stream. The fly never made it. A bat caught it in mid-air. It was quite the event...

Of course it was not as big as the king salmon. Then again, the king salmon couldn't fly.
