Huh, I didn't think of that. I'll talk to them and hopefully they can help me out. Thanks

In Topic: How Big Is Your Wheel?

19 November 2013 - 10:05 PM

I use a Pacifica 400 gt. It's great for me. I'm 5'9 and I just use an upside down bucket that's the exact same height as the wheel table for my chair. The edge of the splash pan measures about 4 inches away from the bat so it's not over the edge too much. The noise on it isn't very bad either; it's just a dull hum. But, I'm pretty sure the best wheel for you would depend on your specific height and build; as I'm pretty young, that would probably contribute as to why I don't ache.

~Hope it helps. :)

In Topic: Clay Thickness Before It Explodes?

Ugh ... Now that sounds worse ...
Those eyeballs are gonna pop! ... Especially since you might want to add it to your portfolio.
Is there no way of hollowing out those eyes?

I'll hollow them out during class tomorrow then, and how do face jugs normally not crack with the added features? Because I've seen face jugs that were made exactly like mine was, but they don't crack or break. Do all of them hollow out the eyes?

In Topic: Clay Thickness Before It Explodes?

 I used heavily grogged clay that has survived Raku firing, so from what you're telling me, I should be fine. Anyways the only place with the 1 1/2 " thickness is where the eyes were added. So hopefully it goes well, because if it does I'm going to add it to my art portfolio for competition.Thanks for your help! :)
