  3. I haven't fired ^6 reduction for a while.My friend finished his kiln a few blocks from my home and asked me to help fire it. Here are some of my Selsor Copper Red results. these are from 2 firings in the last month. The darker reds are 1/2 cone hotter.
  4. recently fired a gas kiln with a friend. Here are the copper red results June 2020. I used my original Selsor Copper Red. The deeper red on a few pieces were a little hotter with cone 6 almost flat.
  5. We have postponed my workshop until Sept 20-26, 2020 for Soluble Salts at La Meridiana. Here ia a description. They are very busy this week altering the course schedule for this year. https://lameridiana.fi.it/product/23-2020-marcia-selsor-soluble-salts-in-low-fire-saggars/
  6. This is a good demo of how they are made and how they work. Even though it starts out looking at a fuddling jug , this one is a puzzle jug. Marcia
  7. My fireplace surround was in PMI a decade or so ago. These are corbels. I used a right angle jig to construct them. My friend Stephani Stephenson and I taught an architectural workshop in Italy in 2012. Here is her website. Her business is Revival Tile. http://www.revivaltileworks.com For corbels I built a right angle jig also in another PMI and in a book on contemporary sculptural techniques.. Marcia
  8. The Archie Bray is 280 miles from Red Lodge. 560 round trip. I prefer to go up the Musselshell river valley and down Deep creek to Towsend avoiding much of the interstate. It can be done in a day and the drive is beautiful .I am convinced I live in Paradise but Sue Tirrell really lives in Paradise Valley! -not to mention visiting the Bray and looking at the gallery, classes and studios. I do sometimes ship my clay with others to Billings and pick it up there. Marcia
  9. The current issue has an article that includes my work in soluble salts. It is on my website link if you scroll down the page. https://www.marciaselsorstudio.com/ceramic-saggar-and-soluble-salts.html
  10. I finally found the recording discussion of our presentation at NCECA last year. Anyone interested in low fire alternative processes, there are 10 being discussed; two each . Paul Andrew Wandless, Russel Fouts, Judith Motzkin, Ken Turner, and myself. It is an hour long presentation with questions. just click on the picture. The images were on a loop and don't correspond to the discussion going on.
  11. I use coils and use them repeatedly.I extrude 1/4" coils through a steel mesh I put in my extruder. From leather hard to after bisque my clay shrinks 5% and another 6-7% at ^6 Marcia
