I think what you have is a mix that he made up of specifics for a series of glazes that used the same materials. This probably had one of the frits added to it or some other materials to complete a some different glazes.

I have made a series of bamboo ribs using the handles and the end pieces(spatula, spoon, etc.) cut up and reshaped as wooden ribs. The spoon bowl is a great rib for throwing bowls and for expanding cylinders on pitchers and large jars.

The spatula blade works well as a straight rib, and the way I have carved and sanded the end gives me a nice foot bead at the bottom of a pot. The handles work very well as knife ribs for cutting into the bottom of pots to trim excess, and do other jobs that are often done with knife shaped ribs.

Remember the first NCECA I went to, first potters stories I think. Met Tom Roberts that week, and he told a great story at the meet. Miss that guy. :(

I am already having NCECA withdrawal as I won't be making it this year. I can only console myself with the fact that next year is in Pittsburgh!!! I will miss seeing a lot of folks I have met at the past two, on the forums here.

Mea, been there done that, all too many times. I have forced myself into the habit of turning off the wheel after anything. At the same time, I now assemble teapots on a banding wheel while standing or sitting on a stool. I also have a large square box, that I place over the wheel head and splash pan and tray that allows me to use the are as a table. I have so little space for unloading kilns, for work space and wedging area that I try to make everything multiple use.
