In Topic: Qotw: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall?

28 September 2016 - 02:46 PM

I have a mirror  (2'0" square, out of a skip - dumpster to most of you) on the wall behind my wheel, I think I use it more when trimming than throwing, and I can also check to see if my belly is growing too much.

 at the moment if I do actually make something worth firing I struggle to get it off the wheel.

 

 

Finish throwing pot - fill a sponge with water - drop water on the far side of the  wheel-head - run wire under pot from where the water is, keeping it tight to the wheel-head - hold ware board at far side of wheel-head and push/slide pot onto it.

 

If you still struggle, use a thicker wire, or even two twisted together.

wine snobs don't like opaque goblets because you can't observe the color. 

 

I've not yet made any that I thought were good enough to offer for sale, but my breakfast Orange juice seems to work OK, that's what I use them for.

 

Soaking the chuck is a good idea too, I usually just give them a squirt from my water sprayer, it's obviously not enough.

I think (after much deliberating) that it has to be goblets  -  it could have been tall long-necked things but the main problem with those is the trimming, not the throwing.

 

I shall try the silicone in the chuck, it sounds like a plan.
