In Topic: Qotw: What Can We Find Under Your Table?

03 May 2016 - 11:05 AM

Wow and double wow! Most of the under-the-table pics are, well, just perfect under the table spaces, tidy and proper. Congrats! I love to see that my fellow potters take care of the space they are working in! Some really big studios out there! I wish I had one or the other studio to work in, and I wish I had oldlady's tool-table. I almost spilled my coffee, reading about the litter box, oldlady.... Really???? :o

Lee and Johnny, my what clean and tidy and big studios and under-the-table space you have! Congrats. I am almost ashamed to show you mine. I am still pottering in my basement, not much space....


Nerd: Lee and Johhny will have to get those 5 bucks of yours!


terrim8: spiders I have too, but they never show their face long enough because I always yell at them: " fat ugly beasts, go awaaaayyyy"


Denice: I fear our under-the-table looks similar?!



In Topic: Qotw: Do You Sneak A Peek?

I had to smile, giggle, and also laugh out loud reading all the answers. I love you guys!!


I should have told you that I have an electric kiln, front loader, with a programmable controller. So no cones and no peekhole (and no flashlight) for me. If I had a peekhole I wouldn't have asked. Of course I would peek! But in an electric or gas kiln without peephole? Marci??


  • So I rearrange my question: what is the highest temp you opened a kiln?


John: thank you for the Japanese lesson. I'd love to visit Japan one day together with you. Is there a woodfire conference we could attend together?


Info: I will be in Korea from tomorrow until April 20th. Pres was so kind to say yes for taking over the QOTW for 2 weeks. Thank you Pres!


See you soon again. We are already a small QOTW-Community. I love that. Thank you all for your contribution! :wub:



In Topic: Qotw: Seconds Getting Firsts Anybody?

oldlady: that is surely the right thing to do. Put a tag on it that says that the piece isn't perfect.


dhPotter: hilarious! I love such trades! You will remember that interlude forever.


John: I expected nothing less from you. That's the way we all should do with flawed pieces.



My selling a second for a first, by the way, was also in the long distant past ;) .... 

In Topic: Qotw: What Is Your Excuse For Not Getting Into The Studio, Or Not Getting Out...

29 March 2016 - 06:22 AM

Pres: thank you so very much for taking over! :wub:


Back in Switzerland now and a working Internet.


Some of my reasons (excuses) for not getting in the studio are: pain in the hands, but that should be in the past now because of the hand surgeries I had / fear of not getting the object (I want to make)perfect enough / too cold - (I am working in the basement) / sitting on the Computer for too long...


And the "not getting out of the studio" part: because making pottery is my passion. Are you giving up passion just to go have lunch or dinner? See!




Glad to be back.
