  1. Thank you. I still have a lot of work to do on the consistency side of these bottles with small necks. Sometimes I just create a mess. Sometimes they happen easily.
  2. From the album: Ferric Chloride

    I set a challenge for myself at the beggining of the year to throw more bottles. Here is one such piece. Straight up ferric chloride coating.
  3. thank you very much. I like when they go a bit darker like this.

      I just made a couple of small saggar boxes for use in an electric kiln. Will be interested in your results.

      In the electric kiln, eh?

      Have heard many warnings. Be careful.

      I've been doing more foil wrapped ferric chloride pieces. Need to throw some clay saguars.

  5. What about trying the bat-mates, or other version? They help with my older plastic bats that have too much play in them. It's a rubbery type material that goes between the bat and the wheelhead and helps hold them in place (in case you didn't know about them). good luck. Marc

      Is your work not "being muddy all day long"?
