my kiln elements are not quite so tightly tilted. have you replaced these since the photo post? can i expect mine to go so far before needing replacement?

love the drift of color downward and the shape of the tray. spraying makes such a difference.
oooohhh! very nice! is there a handle on the other one, too?
going to share the glazes?

TERRRIFFFFIC! where is it located?
Posted November 4, 2018
chilly, you really have this down now! remember when you started and how far you have come, go go girl!

what size is this? it could be anything from a whiskey cup to a vase.
Posted October 24, 2018
all it needs is a huge woodstove and 20 inches of insulation.

what a treat! how did you do it? does it stand on its own? twenty thumbs up!

like the composition with the throwing lines surrounding the leaf.
good handle lugs well placed and attached.

wish i could handle these, they are really appealing. i met that white pig and the sheep and her friends used to keep the grass cut around my old house.
cocker spaniel? droopy ears are hard to do. i have smushed all the animals i have tried, these are terrrrrriffic.

can i put two thumbs up? really nice.

yes, a slab big enough for the bottle to press into the foam. the sand gives it some structure if it is a thin plastic bottle that would otherwise deform when pressed. stretching does not hurt the slab. my flat boards have sharpish 90 degree angles and only one in hundreds actually creases into a split at a corner. look at my personal gallery.

yappy, if you use some sand for weight in the fancy bottle you can press it into the clay over some deep foam rubber. i still have a big piece from a sofa cushion someone put out for trash 10/12 years ago. if you have already cut the bottle that won't work well due to the brittleness of plastic bottles.

very nice! would be great with black-eyed susans.
the true test comes now, will it hold water without leaking? test by filling it and putting it on a piece of dry paper for 24 hours. (i have made many folded vases that leak)

congratulations! now just have to work more to fill that lovely kiln. you do know that you can make a full size shelf by putting 4 posts in and allowing the half shelves to fit over a single post between them. did you use kiln wash? counting on wasters without kiln wash might not work all the time. what are the spiral bottle caps?

thanks, the actual flowerbed must be 50 feet round. it is on a corner lot and the flowers have spread 6 feet onto the pavement. spectacular when i saw it. cannot remember exactly where it was, by now it must have taken over the whole block.

very practical! so the lid is placed upside down on the pot for glaze firing? glad you decided to take that order, may be the start of something rewarding.
