  1. Where did you get the image? I’m unsure what you are asking about. But perhaps the maker can give you information.
  2. I hope so.... the dark brown was in everything
  3. I sprayed some Albany mixed with water for a salt fire on my porcelain pots. I can’t believe I never read that it is like glitter... literally dark fingerprints on everything. Hahaha my pots in this kiln are going to probably be very messy with smudges. This will be the messiest load I have ever done. We are loading the kiln in the morning. But I am worried that I ruined several pots just from the unintended transfer.
  4. Thank you - Neil I wish I read this before I left because I packed some personal glazes but plan to use the ones provided by the studio. I have gum solution at home. I mixed St. John’s black , a cobalt slip, and some true Albany with water. (To spraY on with an atomizer I packed.) Is it necessary to use a liner glaze since these will be fired to maturity? mostly planning to take advantage of the salt atmosphere for the look with minimal markings.
  5. This morning while preparing for a salt fire, I caught my kiln over firing the bisque load. I shut it down at 2080 (cone 01-1). I’m hoping my saving grace is that this is a cone 10 body and hopefully the pots will take on some of the atmosphere. Does anybody have experience with something similar? This was half of the pots I’m taking to the firing. I can’t believe I screwed this up as I was in a hurry.
  6. Hello! finally I get to participate in a salt fire. I am using a wood fire porcelain body. Question- I have been saving some Albany slip (true) to use in salt firings. Any seasoned potters have experience/recipes that would be reliable? All recipes online that I find are for “Alberta “. I was hoping for something that would react nicely with the salt atmosphere. also, when I fire oxidation I use cobalt oxide in neph sye for ^6 For brushwork (For the old school Blue brushwork look). What would you do for ^10 salt fire? I realize this atmosphere is much different than what I
  7. Bill van guilder has a free video on YouTube or his website on how to make a hump mold. Very simple
  8. I just used soft brick under the floor level of brick. The rest is hard brick
  9. Thanks! I wasn’t sure if this was a “buy sell trade” question because I asked about paying for help Or a workshop, or equipment because I was talking about a kiln. I have enough bricks for the small kiln. I will need to purchase a few arch bricks for it. Since my bricks are refurbished I was originally using mortar on the bottom half to help With the inconsistencies in the brick but I prefer to dry stack for the same reasons stated above.
  10. I have been trying to build a salt kiln and have taken apart and re built a few times. I am working by myself using Phil Rogers small test kiln design. I have read through the Olson book. I’m still feeling lost and would prefer to work with somebody who has done this before because I am moving at a snails pace constantly doubting what I am doing. does anybody know of any “pay for guidance” people (maybe somebody who can offer me advice via photos and texting every few layers?) Or small salt building workshops that are not canceled and let you leave with plans? I am plann
  11. I love the bill van guilder videos on his website. hsin is very relaxing Simon Leach is great with fun classic tips now and then tim see has some great videos ceramics monthly has some good uploads on your tube also in clay buddies (Facebook) they did a video series since nceca couldn’t happen. Nceca has released some of their videos too
  12. Its also possible you are just getting extra grog separating from the clay from over working it on the wheel. I often see new throwers "hold" the clay as it spins. Try only touching the clay with intention to see if that helps. If not, its probably the older wheel head.
  13. IF there is no peep hole, then I wouldn't do anything about it.
