  1. I try to cover my hands with wet slurry, this keeps everything slippery and uses less water.
  2. I think it’s a common problem for potters to make the handle too big (far away from body). I have 1 finger mugs from other makers that I enjoy using, as well as full hand handles. I personally try to keep mine close to the body and Lower so it balances the weight of liquid better. Attachment place is also key depending on form or any surface work. No “rules” per se... but certainly there are better aesthetic choices.
  3. I’m going up Thursday and Friday. Is there a council meeting happening?
  4. I purchased an egg shaped mold for making psanki but that’s as far as it goes. I’m also not planning to use it for slip. Just enjoying my polish heritage. I have been offered molds plenty of times and have refused. They are a dying hobby IMO
  5. Yes! I do have that book. Some of my favorite recipes in there
  6. I imagine it might if you have more copper to reduce. I am testing out his recipe as well as Tom turners recipie (cone 9) I’m going to take a stab at converting it down ....
  7. I think it’s due time that I re-watched John Britt‘s video.
  8. oh dear! Now I feel silly. I have all of those. I apologize for the confusion. I’m fairly new to glaze mixing. I have altered a few recipes but now I am in the process of learning how to construct my own. Thank you So what do you substitute 5% of the silica with that?
  9. Thanks, I will try that. I’m thinking of doing a test in a sagar and one outside to see the variation too. I have been trying to get the bloodiest blood on my pots for years and the lack of variation on commercial reds and mason stains make them look so uninteresting.
  10. So to convert a glaze from high fire (cone 9) to a mid range do you increase the flux? What would you replace it with? Or ?? I’m trying to wrap my head around the chemistry of converting. I’m currently in love with a recipe from Tom Tuner but it’s cone 9. Thank you!
  11. I am about to mix up some SiC copper reds for mid range oxidation firing to test out. I would love to know if anybody has discovered ways to prevent the common carbide bubbling and pinholing that is known to occur before I begin my testing journey? Some suggest fast cooling, some suggest slow. my guess is that a hold will help develop more red but I rear it may cause the carbide bubble effect. Has anybody done testing on this? Ask if my mesh is finer than a recipe (say I have a 1000 mesh and the recipe calls for 600) Would it mean I should try adding less to account for the better encorperated product? I plan to test but I’m hoping to avoid some kiln runs. Thanks!! -Rebekah
  12. What kind of mold are you using? Casting liquid slip or a press mold? if using a press mold I recommend using something slippery on the inside (dawn dish soap works) to keep it from sticking to they play doh. If using slip cast, I think timing is critical. You don’t want your piece to get too dry to alter but yet it needs to be dry enough to release from the mold.
  13. An internal armeture that can be burned out would be best
  14. It sounds like your pots might not have been vitrified. What cone is your clay vs the firing that you did?
