In Topic: Leveling the Wheel

Today, 08:24 AM

So why did I ask? Unlike Neil, the floor in my garage/studio is all sloped towards a central drain. Makes leveling pretty tough sometimes have to raise part of wheel 2 inches! The garage is built over an underground river! The drain dumps right into that, so it is not advantageous to wash down the concrete floor with a hose. for Leveling, I have a piece of 2X4X8 that has a large central hole cut 1/2 way down to set the lowest leg into, the others I use larger washers. Much more stable than the levelers with the CXC.

You got some nice soft luster on some of the pieces, and I liked the iron spots on some of the bowl outsides. There is some obvious problems with liquifying glaze on the bottoms of some of the bowls. This will take a bit of a learning curve, but the first firing was not a disaster. Keep on keeping on!

In Topic: Making Cone Packs

15 September 2014 - 08:24 AM

When I make up cone packs, usually 4 or so at a time, I use a thin brush handle or pencil to put several holes in the cone pack after putting in the cones. I also make my cone packs up with the angle of the cones going perpendicular to the pack length so that I can see the cones drop separately through my peep hole. I fire without a kiln setter of any type. A hassle if I fall asleep at the wrong time. :angry:

Sounds like access, but no interest in following up with your request. Good porcelain will require very stringent studio clean areas. Your teacher may not be up to the challenge.


The pieces you reference look like castings all. Just a personal opinion.

Since you are getting into a partnership, I might even consider seeing a lawyer about the possibilities of liability and claims responsibility. You may find yourself in a pickle if for some reason or other the partnership defaults on financial matters or if some one gets hurt on the premises. Is this partnership an LLC? Some things to think about.
