  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.

      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.

  13. 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.

  20. 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
