  1. I keep mine in the original boxes, and on one shelf dedicated to "0x" cones, and on the opposite wall another shelf for cone 1 and higher. I am making it harder to mess up as my memory changes, lol. John
  2. So I got busy and made three sinks for a house I am renovating. This past week I loaded them up and bisque fired them. One of the three survived the bisque firing. The good thing is I know how to efficiently make two more. Must allow more drying time for 1/2 inch thick ware this time..

      I need to make a couple of sinks someday. The ones in my bath are chipping. Denice

      My friend made sinks and made a bowl to fire them in an upright position.

      I have new clay for the remake of two sinks, it's a nice architectural clay , very groggy. This time I will take more time to dry, and punch some relief holes inside the foot ring near the foot/bowl join to let the water out better.

  3. I take a Summer course in alternative firing and really like Coleman Porcelain for work that will be soda fired. You do have to cover it up as I find it grays out and looks dull without something on it. There is a local group studio near Atlanta that fires Coleman Porcelain to Cone 6, electric and gas. I never used the Coleman Porcelain for that cone, but I didn't hear any complaints when I asked about it at Cone 6. I preferred Standard 365 for Cone 6, so that was my go to. I do insist on porcelain with grolleg rather than the US domestic porcelain. I feel that it has a translucent, lu

      How did your sale go?

  6. So I have half of my inventory I hope to take to my first show of Spring is in the kiln bisque firing. About two thirds are new designs I hope will sell well.

      So, only one unsatisfactory pot in the whole load. A handle detached itself at the top join. It looks like someone forgot to score and slip...oops. Need to decide how to go...handle...no handle. All the raku destined pieces from the load are fired and turned out well.

  7. Hello Florence W. THank you for your comment on my Avatar. It was inspired by my Yellow Labrador Retriever Lucy! She set me off on the raku animal quest, which is now my main direction for art/craft fairs and shows.

  8. JLowes! I love your creation that you are using for your profile pix! Made me smile. Thanks! Florence W

  9. It's interesting. The cat and dog were underglaze topped by a clear crackle glaze and raku fired. The giraffe head is underglaze topped by a clear glaze and low fired in an electric kiln. Perhaps the difference in colors makes the appearance not as pleasing to you. In person the giraffe head has impact, but perhaps loses some of that in a photo.
  10. I just adore your animal pottery!

    Loved viewing your web page. :-)

  12. I like your art. Especially the animal pots. I have your website in my favorites. I have not made a web site yet. Maybe someday when I have art as good as yours.

  13. Steve, Once you have fired too thin, will adding glaze and refiring be an option to revitalize the Ancient Jasper, or should one just move on from that pot? I have a couple of the "eggplant" colored variations. John Lowes Sandy Springs, GA
