  1. Mea, You have hit the nail on the head. They didn't tell anyone about the issue and so no one came forward. Surprise. I only found out about it 3 months and have spent that time trying to get them to live up to the terms of our agreement. I was convinced not to file with the Wage and Labor board with the assurance that they would handle it properly. ( I will post a reply on http://ncclayclub.blogspot.com/ later today.) http://www.change.org/petitions/penland-school-board-chairman-repay-the-artists
  2. Glad to hear it. Loved birding in Brownsville and up the Rio Grande. Good luck with the studio! You got stamina!

  3. Thanks for contributing. Haben't seen you here very often. I am starting to teach this semester at UT Brownsville. I would love to get rid of the 6 types of clay and a zillion glazes in the shop...but that will take time.

  4. Mary's Fake Shino cone 6 electric 35 Frit 3195 24 Silica 16.2 Cornwall Stone 7.8 Whiting 6 EPK 4.8 Zinc Oxide Add tin oxide -6.6 red iron 2.0 Try on a dark stoneware. It doesn't total 100 because they added the colorants and totaled it, but if I remember correctly it was nice!
  5. You can try a high feldspar glaze like : 85Custer Feldspar 8 Silica 7 Whiting for a start. Johnbrittpottery@gmail.com

Oil Spot Combo #1Cone 6 (two to three coats- pretty thick) 47.83 g.- G-200 23.91g. - Silica 17.39 g. – Whiting 10.87 g. – EPK 9.78 g – Red Iron Oxide Oil Spot Combo #2 CoverGlaze (apply over #1) Cone 6 (1 - 2 coats) 30g. –Custer Feldspar 30g. – Gerstley Borate 25g.- Silica 5g. – EPK 10g. Zircopax. (can be substituted for mason stains.)
  7. The problem with Egyptian paste is that there is not much clay (so it is low in plasticity- can't throw it) and it has a bunch of oxides in it like cobalt or copper and a lot of soda ash/soda bicarbonate (can be caustic) so you don't want to have your hand in it with out gloves. You could try it with gloves and just add a bunch of ball clay (15% - 25%) or bentonite (5% - !5%) until you can throw something???
  8. Here are some clear glaze recipes from Mastering Cone 6.

  9. Don't know where you live but I have a bunch in my book, "The Complete Guide to High Fire Glazes". They are too numerous to mention.
  10. I think that this is pretty common. Depends on the area and season of the year (various mold spores). Just wedge it and proceed. I think the Clorox would work to killl the mold but is hard on your hands. www.johnbrittpottery.com
  11. I would love to see some pictures of the gold blue. I have a temmoku gold cone 6?
  12. Thank you John. That would be very generous of you. You can also go to : http://ncclayclub.blogspot.com and search for "shino" . Lot of recipes and descriptions on how with images. John
