Darted Cups

26 August 2016 - 11:24 AM

I'm trying out making darted cups. I like them alot, but I'm having a problem with the rim of the cup distorting when it dries. I'm using porcelain, paper clay, and stoneware clay. They all seem to distort in basically the same way. I'm drying them slowly: 24 hrs wrapped completely in plastic, and then 12-14 hrs with a loose cover of plastic. Any suggestions from you clay veterans out there?

Glazing Question

29 January 2016 - 12:32 PM

I'm trying to glaze a pitcher a dark glaze on the outside, which I will spray on, and then apply a lighter glaze on the inside. Is there a way to protect the dark outside glaze from drips of the inside glaze, which will be poured? Thanks for your help!

Lids Sticking To Jar During Firing

12 December 2015 - 01:37 PM

i've been told to fire lids and bottoms together (nested), so they end up the same size. i'm having trouble with the lids sticking to the bottoms sometimes, and am wondering if there's a simple way to keep that from happening. (the two surfaces that nest are always glaze-free) thanks
