  1. Make yourself a 2 part "prototype" so you can be sure, those tools actually are improved if handle is thicker. I am sure it will feel nice when you pick it up but because your fingers are further apart you will lose accuracy in your movement. If you like to make those metal handles a bit softer, use heat-shrink tubing (used in electronics or by electricians).
  2. Cheers Brian. Now I feel like getting me ass back to the studio and giving it a second try. I missed me first one by 7/8 of your funky measurement units. BTW, we started a local chapter of 12" (30.48 cm) club. Leather jackets, fast bikes and wild parties at anagama kiln. You know... potters usual.
  3. neilestrick, awesome job. Are club members going to have a special forum badge or something?
  4. How much and what size grog you got there? No grog and >1.5 cm, is asking for trouble.
  5. Biglou13 asked for more information so, here we go: This vase is 15.7" high and 11" wide I used heavy grog (0.5-2mm) brownish stoneware clay. It's built from coil on the throwing wheel, I used black engobe. No glaze. Fired to 1200C
  6. Biglou13 asked for more information so, here we go: This vase is 16" high and 14" wide I used heavy grog (0.5-2mm) stoneware clay. It's built from coil on the throwing wheel and covered with white engobe. No glaze.

      Mart, I was asking you, weeks ago, how you did the blue on the tenmoku bowl. Now I know why I never got answers. My comment in your gallery didn't record. Great new vases! Evelyne

  9. Throwing stick? Are we carp fishing or pulling 12" tall beer mugs from mud? (yes, I know the stick you are talking about)
  10. Missed by 7/8... oh well, maybe I get lucky next time. Do I understand correctly: - no sponge, - You can not take your hands off in the middle of the pull and continue from there as a same pull. - result must be "usable" as a huge beer mug or something - no tools (like ribs etc) At least this is how I attempted to do
  11. Add a thin layer of clear glaze and see what happens Works for me with some runny glazes.
  12. posted new images to my temmoku gallery
