  1. Found a house with space for a studio. Been a long 3-4 years with little to no pottery ;[

    Excited :DD

      Looking forward to being able to post some stuff here again :D  Few months and I should be set up. Have two weeks off work the end of next month as the factory is shutting down so plan to be moving in by then.

      Both :D I mean the reduction kiln is still a massive WIP so that will probably be on the back burner. Saying that so is my electric kiln controller. The only kiln that wasn't bodged by me needs a bit more juice so once I get that sorted it will be easy electric firings.

  3. Finished four chapters, have drawn several charts and graphs. About 35% done! but have most outlines done. Took off Febuary and most of this month, have to go back shortly.

  4. Morning all. This is probably a basic question to many of you , but my Chemistry knowledge is not great and I would appreciate some help. Is it possible to change an earthenware clear gloss glaze (firing to 1100 centigrade) to a higher firing stoneware glaze (firing to 1200 centigrade) without knowing the formula of the original glaze. I am sure this question is answered in Digital Fire or somewhere on this forum, but I am feeling a bit lazy to search through- got too much playing in the studio to do!

      Have you tried firing it up to 1200 and seeing if it works? Some glazes can have a wide 'workable' range.

  5. After 1.5~ years working as a receptionist and saving money I have moved to Stoke-on-Trent to find a job in a pottery factory :lol:

      Found a job as a belt attendant, lots of moving and stacking pots in the decorating department :lol: not the most exciting work but better than answering the phone.

      Haha I like that it is now orbiting the sun for the next billion years. It was his personal car if a bit of clever marketing. Also enjoyed the nod to Douglas Adams.

  11. Finally, I got 8 items up in my website Shop. That means I now know how to do the next 100--all the behind-the-scenes integrated detail work involved, since no, you don't "just" upload a picture and slap a price on it!  

  12. I am missing the moderators and key resource/info people who are (recently) not here anymore---the place just ain't the same.

      Losing John was almost as bad as losing Tom, I know he is still out there in the world but it still hurt. I don't want to make it seem like Tom's passing is any less poignant but it feels the same.

  15. Well 41Degrees C here tomorrow, only got to 35 today,  Pots ready to trim before y'get them off the wheel. Shed a sauna, off for a long drink of tea, the best on a hot night.

    Tomorrow, my turn to sit in a gallery, sounds fine.

      Anything over 25 and I get too hot :lol: never gets warm up in Newcastle. Sounds good for quick dry pots, maybe too good.

  16. that is not my profile feed--i have never sent a picture--maybe  someone  sent theirs to the wrong place by mistake!

  17. I am sure it was a long road but I am happy to have shared some of it with you. Thank you for walking along side and showing your path to me.

      My test kiln is still waiting on me 'finishing' the software so it works well. Keep getting a few weeks of inspiration then a good few weeks lacking any urge to program. Too cold and dark now to fire the gas kiln.

      In the last 40 years under 2% of deaths from terrorism have been in western europe. Very safe over here.

  22. Glaze fire IN! As usual on the strength of one good test I have done something new with a whole kiln load because apparently I'm insane. I think it's going to be fine, though. I'm 98% sure.

  23. I can't say exactly where I have been hiding, but my Mayan is certainly getting better :)
