nichrome wire

01 January 2012 - 02:42 PM

Hi everyone,
I was going to buy nichrome wire for making a rack to glaze fire ornaments being hung, thought it's better then on stilts.
Can I use a piece of an old element instead of nichrome wire?

food safe?

Hi, I'm trying to find out if the glaze is food safe.
It contains a lot of manganese oxide, which i was told by experienced potter is a poison and shouldn't be used inside of dinnerware.
Some other people told it's safe, but wouldn't give me any detail to convince.

The Recipe:
Manganese Oxide 66
Copper carbonate 17
Ball Clay 17
Fired to cone 5-6

Please give as much detail as you can with your answer.

Thank you!
