In Topic: Any Way To Get An Off Topic Forum?

I thought we always went off Topic????? .


So did I. Guilty as charged. If we had a space to go off topic, I would have to stay ON topic. :wacko:


In Topic: General Liability Insurance

I think it should be the responsibility of the Craft Sale to insure their sale. they are once again off-loading onto the artists.

I, like Diesel clay, live in a different country. I have sold at a lot of craft fairs. Never had to buy extra insurance.

I now have two big sales twice a year out of my home studio.[separate from my house]. I can get "special event insurance" for $150.00 a time.

I feel for you guys living in a litigious society.


In Topic: Glazing Cone 6 Pottery

The two metal brackets that the cone rests on can come out. They could be cleaned with a wire brush attachment on your bench grinder. Or you can buy new ones they are cheap. you can also buy a guide template to adjust the setting of your sitter.

Do you know a potter or teacher in your area who can show you? Not complicated, but I am a two finger typer and this would take a lot of words. Better to show.


In Topic: It's Too Big..she Said

I think I can speak for the rest of us, when we assume all Canadians are polite.  I for one, poke fun at the notion.  A stereotype, does not define a nation.  Though, all things considered, that's not a bad one to have.  When people think of the U.S., they think we are overweight, gun-toting bullies.  


I've heard enough of your classroom stories, to know, that there are quite a few Canadians, that are far from polite.  I of course, can relate.  I also work with the same clientele you do.

Well said, buddy.

You don't have to turn the vent on immediately. Probably an hour into the firing. It is just convenient to do it all at once.
