Topics I've Started

Huge Pots

15 November 2014 - 12:26 PM

Came across a blog that describes how in France huge terra cotta pots are made using a heavy rope wrapped sectional armature. The armature is made to be removed prior to firing. This method hasn't changed in hundreds of years.

 

The blog which describes the process pretty well is here: http://www.deborahsi...de-garden-pots/

 

Anybody doing anything like this here?

Anyone near McDaniel College , Westminster Maryland looking for one?, They are selling theirs . I know I can't post sale info here but it seems reasonable.

I don't make many molds and have never tried using silicone caulk, anyone try this with success? I thought it had possibilities.

Bouncing off Rebekah’s topic of First Show I’m wondering what peoples go to display props are? Out of all the things I’ve tried my favourite is the Flexi Stand from Axner. They work on large pieces, are adjustable and unobtrusive. Anybody else have anything that really works?
