      And, congratulations for being on the cover of Pottery Illustrated with a 3 page spread inside. Man, it's your year indeed. Feel good dance is in order.

  2. ^ Agree with Rex. Before you try drilling new holes, give them a call and explain the problem.
  3. Are they HydrO-bats or HydrA-bats? Those are two different products, with different types of holes.
  4. dirtroads, thank you for sharing the details and the timeline. Very informative. Your buildings are so charming and inviting!

      Absolutely beautiful. Are they are smooth as they look? Gorgeous!

  9. Nytal was still available until the supplies ran out a couple years ago. It does not contain asbestos, it was the unfortunate loser of a lawsuit. Someone claimed Nytal caused them mesothelioma, and won the lawsuit even though it was not proven. Manufacturer had to close the mine. But anyways the gray talc might work just fine in your glazes. They will look different in the bucket, but fire the same.
  10. I got nervous when my local supplier ran out of Nytal and started carrying the gray talc instead. But I've found that at cone 6 the gray color completely disappears, and the satin matte surfaces are exactly the same.
  11. This FAQ listing will be updated periodically. If you have any suggestions for threads that should be added here, send me a PM. -Mea

  17. Are advertisements allowed on the Ceramic Arts Daily Forum? No. Our motto is "Talk business, don't do business." Please use this phrase to guide you. Another way to think about it is to ask yourself "Do I stand to gain financially from this post?" If the answer is yes, please don't do it. Why are advertisements not allowed on CAD Forum? This forum exists for discussion, information exchange, and community building. If we allow users to buy and sell goods and services here, many people would come here only for that. There are numerous other places on the internet for this. Anyone who wishes to purchase a classified ad, to appear in Ceramics Monthly and on the Ceramic Arts Daily website, can do so here: http://ceramicartsdaily.org/ceramics-monthly/classifieds/ Can you provide some specific examples? You may not promote your own goods or services, or those of any business with which you are affiliated. You may provide opinions and recommendations (good or bad) about products and services with which you are not affiliated, and if you do not stand to gain from your opinion. You may include a link to your website, and/or your online store, in your Signature. Your Signature, along with your About Me blurb and your Photo Gallery, is part of your Profile. The purpose of your Profile is to allow other users to learn more about you, and it is not considered part of the conversation stream. If your Profile inspires another user to buy your work offlist, that's ok. In the body of a post, you may include a link to your own website, and other websites. However, the content of the post must not contain a "buy it" message. Please note that the following types of links are generally not allowed in the body of a post: a link to your own online store, or to an ad on PotterBarter, Craigslist, eBay (or similar websites). In most cases these links will be deleted, regardless of the context. Posts that are of a fundraising nature, including crowdsourcing campaigns, are also not allowed on this forum, even if you are promoting a fundraising campaign that is not your own. On rare occasions, a post will fall into a gray area, and a judgement call will be used to determine if it qualifies as an advertisement, or not. But the examples above cover the vast majority of all the cases we have reviewed. Are there any exceptions? Yes. You are allowed to promote legitimate ceramics-related events (e.g. classes, workshops, exhibitions, festivals, etc.), in the Events section of the forum. This is not allowed anywhere else on the Forum, only the Events section.
