I enjoy experimenting with my portable wood fire kiln, and could switch to that. I'll still use my two sticks and a rolling pin for my slabs. If I have to burn those two sticks I'll be in trouble.

"only painters are artists"
Consider the following scenario:
A collector has several pieces of pottery by well known potters prominently displayed in her home.
A friend paints a still life of that collection and the collector hangs that painting in her home.

Question: In this scenario is the painting the only work of art?

I know. Answering a question with a question is the chickens way out.

Years ago I did this with lace and it worked.

In Topic: How Long To Fire A Raku Glaze

16 March 2017 - 10:14 AM

I fire most of my raku in a small electric kiln with a commercial raku glaze which matures at cone 08.
The kiln is started on high and takes approximately 1 hr. and 15 min.

When I use my wood kiln it only takes 30 to 45 min.

In Topic: Visiting Phoenix/sedona - Suggestions

One unusual thing happened when my husband and I were wondering through galleries in Sedona.
We were locked in a bronze gallery and couldn't exit. The gallery was part of a small 2 story art mall with maybe 5 separate galleries that had access entry off an interior walkway which is where we entered.
We looked around and began to notice that no one else was in the gallery, not even in the office.
We tried to leave by the same door we entered but it was locked and could not be unlocked from the
inside. There was another door facing the
street and it was also locked. There was no way of unlocking either door Which we thought was really
strange. After waiting and no one returned, we contemplated calling 911 but found a phone number on
some of the printed information available in the gallery. The owner/manager was out of town so he called the individual who was covering the gallery. He had gone to the post office.
Enjoy your trip!
