      I put a huge bowl of water out at the edge of our driveway during the summer for dogs out for a walk. Went to change the water just now and somebody has stolen the bowl. Hmmm, back to using a bucket rather than one of my bowls.

      If I put some Iron oxide wash on a bisqued pot without glazing over it, would it stick after cone 6 firing, or might it come off and leave marks on your hands?

      I just read your message on firing to avoid pinholes and bumps in cone 6 and you mentioned a drop and hold firing schedule and showed a beautiful mug. I’m holding for 20 minutes at the highest temp and it looks pretty good but wondering if you suggest dropping to ? temp and Then holding? Hold for how long? Thanks!!

      Hi Jawpot,
      I am trying to decipher from the posts the end result of outcome of the legal aspects discussed in making your own lamp and selling it in a retail store.
      Long story short,  I have made some really cool lamps, handmade out of a resin base, with a e26 socket with cord I bought on Amazon and a Frosted lamp shade.  
      I local shop in my town wants to sell them.  I am trying to decide or figure out if I can do this or if it opens be to a lot of liability and law/code breaking issues.  Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated?!  
      Also, I noticed you mentioned you spoke to an attorney, would you be able to refer to this attorney if I need to get further legal advice?  Thank you in advance  for any response you can give.
