I think a domain name is key-I have one but am not selling intentionally on the web. My site is info for existing customers or that was the idea long ago.

I would make it decorative, not structural

I second this idea.

I used to deal with EJ Bartel as well in southern Oregon until they downsized and closed many locations about 15 years ago. They still are in Washington state as well as Salt Lake I think.

I have swineherd over to the 100ml graduated weigh its easier to and faster to do

But as Tim said above ( you just need to know that glaze x works best with a reading of y.)

if you chose to use a hydrometer you mix the glaze well and as soon as possible (when the surface is not spinning fast) take your measurement-you need to always do this as he said settling will affect the measurement.

You can use a ford cup as well (I have a few and have used them as well)


I like the weighed 100ml plastic cylinder-I use it each week on my one  glaze that is so touchy (rule blue) -all the rest of the 12-15 buckets are by feel.

When you glaze/and fire each week you get a good feel for whats going on.
