  1. i got volunteered to look at this kiln...... i've done some work on modern skutts and L&L kilns. this kiln is way before my time. figured i'd ask the CA hive mind. it has model k kiln sitter, with digital brain made by company long gone. checked continuity everything i could. metered all the standard checks. my wild guess is transformer or board/brain is dead, if controller is dead there is no hope. is the 4-07-6024 mci transformer standard? i could not see any nomeclature on this part. i'm going to suggest that she get a modern kiln. not that i would but
  2. So I had a bag of grit spill on the porch, I cleaned up most of it    turns out my cats,   one is named  shino,  likes the fine grit dirt bath...  I let them out in backyard today, when I called them in, yes they come when called,  they had some gray dust on them ....Well they found the spot where I had spilled some Alberta  slip.....  high class kitties..... regular dirt is no longer good enough.....

    pictures don't show it but in some pieces there is an iridescent/metallic quality in areas, i had others use it and didn't get same effect. i pulled from kiln onto news paper, placed more newspaper, closed lid on trash/redux can...... repeat
  6. prototyping/desogn idea for hand built form...(big word for messing around with idea, for playing with clay)

  7. well after crashing some mugs and reading about productivity, yesterday while studio sitting threw 7 mugs with handles (for the record ihave made kept less than a dozen handles, me no like) about 10 trinket dishes, and 2 medium plates. looking at others' shelves i was productive.... (but not at production potter level)

      I don't know how long you've been at this but don't compare yourself to high production potters.

      Whenever I do that I feel like a huge failure but the truth is I don't enjoy that kind of work anyway. I like working in batches of 2-6.

      Hope that came across as encouraging, not rude. Was meant to be encouraging.

  8. was @ coop for a short period today, i threw 6 somewhat strict cylinders. destined to be mugs, i fumbled the ware board crashing all six, and had 0% dissapointment!!!!!! i cut what was cutable to check and im doing OK!!!!

      Big: throwing, dropping, fumbling stumbling: it all produces art.

      Hi, haven't made in awhile buts yes still making, never used mark and daves .... Who makes that.... It's been about a year since throwing porcelain, I had it figured out second day....clay was too wet day one. And it took a day for "it" to click....... I'm throwing a modified Cushing/Galloway body.
