Topics I've Started

Any Locals In Atlanta, Georgia Who Are Members Of A Studio?

19 November 2013 - 10:14 PM

I live in McDonough, GA but I've been looking into some studios around Atlanta to widen the possibilities. The only one that I could find was Mudfire. My teacher says it's good, but I wanted to see if there were any other studios out there or if anyone is a member of Mudfire. All I need is a place with clays, glazes and firing provided with the membership ( and it not exeed $170 a month). If you have any suggestions or are a member of any nearby studio please let me know, it would help tons.

Clay Thickness Before It Explodes?

10 November 2013 - 11:28 PM

I made a face jug and I'm worried that there may be parts of it that are too thick and may explode in the kiln. It's a very nice piece so I really want to avoid that. It's almost 1 1/2 inch and my teacher has always told me to never fire a piece past 1 inch, but she's been wrong before. Is this a safe thickness to fire?

P.S. It's lowfire clay if that helps any. :) ~Thanks


Centering?

31 August 2013 - 03:05 PM

I have been practicing throwing for about a week now and I haven't quite mastered centering. Now I know that it's supposed to take a while to be able to just center the peice in less than 5 minutes, but I was wonering if you guys had pointers or extra things that could help move me along. I usually use the pulling technique. Thanks!


Dyeing Clay

19 June 2013 - 02:26 PM

Is there any other way to dye clay without using colorants? Like natural things or household things that won't alter the way the clay fires?

Ideas for new projects?

26 May 2013 - 08:51 PM

I think I'm having potter's block. I can't seem to think of anything new to make and neither can my friends google and bing. If you have any projects or ideas that you would recommend to someone who started a couple of months ago it would be greatly appreciated.
~Thanks
