    I bought a new Cone Art kiln a couple years ago, looked great until I changed the elements the first time. Even with being super careful I still managed to chip out some bits along the upper edges of the channels. Maybe one day L&L will be available in Canada.

    I think an artist needs sometimes to do this, make the courageous submission rather than playing it safe. A different venue might have taken them.

    Thanks Gabby. To be honest I felt humbled with her reaction, wish I had just given her the bear though.

    I'm sorry to hear that Terri. Not a pleasant part of the ageing process for so many people or their families. It's wonderful your Mom has a caring, thoughtful daughter.

    it's definitely a long grieving process - glad the bear helped a bit- maybe for both of them   Going thru this myself now with my Mom.  We bring Italian cold cuts, cheeses & olives  & sourdough bread - stuff they don't serve at her care home.

    Roberta12 reacted to Denice in Mark I was wondering if you had ever used the Wonderbat system. I tried it out today,   
    I have my old kiln in the trash and my new kiln installed.  We discovered that it had been fired once and the cone had some how melted back into the cone cylinder of the kiln sitter making it unusable.  We replaced it but had to move the kilns around the new one had a short cord.  While we had the kilns out we put up another piece of cement board on the wall in the kiln room.  Once we started to move things around we discovered that our corrugated  aluminum for the Skutt envirovent need to be replaced.   Our quick and easy job turned into a marathon.  I  have a bisque firing going this morning and I am going to try wetting the wonderbats and see if that helps.    Denice

    They are currently “investigating” whatever that means. If they can’t find the shipment, I will file a claim. The bags are worth $1k so I bet they will try not to pay it. So I’m stressed about the money. Meanwhile, I think I have enough blank bags to get through the show.  It’s not what I planned for, but I can live with blank bags for one more show.

    Maybe your decals are different than mine, but the 3rd firing I do for decals is at a much lower temp.  Perhaps that is why yours lost all their color?  I found Milestone decals to have a wealth of information about application and firing.  I think they also have some youtube videos.
