Any Smart Phone Apps For Kilns?

21 March 2014 - 04:16 PM

I just got my first smart phone. My old flip phone was on it's last few working buttons so I jumped into the smart phone world, kinda nice, really.

So I started to think about if they're any apps to communicate with a kiln controller or, in the case of a gas kiln, maybe a wireless thermocouple with bluetooth so we could get a current update to temp with out singing one's eyebrows, looking at cones.

I've seen some micro computers(matchbox size)that have some of these features, just wondering if anyone's been working on something like that


Glaze Color Q? On Sapphire Blue

26 July 2013 - 12:29 PM

I've got a request for a blue/blue green glaze for a cone 6 cassarole. I'm thinking of using Frogpond's sapphire blie but changing the colorants to about 3/4%cobalt carb and about 1 or 2 % copper carb instead of the 1.5% cobalt carb and the 4% rutile.

The glaze I'm trying to match is a clear dark bluebreaking to green blue.

I'm hoping someone her has testes different colorants in this base.

Please let me know some thoughts on this, if you can.

Thanks Wyndham

Looking For Cone 9 R Yellow Matt

17 July 2013 - 02:21 PM

I've got a request for some mugs that have a matt yellow on the outside bottom 2/3. I have Mamo that I use as a matt but what OI need is a more yellow matt to satin and I'm wondering about Alfred yellow or Ferguson yellow. Does anyone have any experience with a good gas fired c10 r yellow.


Several recipes I've seen call for 15% zircopax and 3.7 % iron ox. I just don't know what that would look like.

Thanks Wyndham

John Post website down?

04 July 2013 - 11:31 AM

I had book marked www. John Post.us as a great source of glaze testing. It seems to be off line right now.
Does anyone know how John is doing or if he's redesigning the site?
Thanks Wyndham
