    I just read a comment you made regarding clay for outside use. You mentioned bird baths and that's exactly what I am going to make. Can you recommend a clay body you like for this use? Could I use a cone 6 glaze? Thanks so Much

      Hi @BobM, If you check DAY’s profile, they haven’t returned to the forum since 2013. If you post your question in the main forum instead of the personal status updates, you’ll get better, up to date information from active members.

      I threw a couple of bird baths 2 years ago, I used the SC Hazelnut clay for these, and fired them to ^6 for the glaze. The owners have been very pleased with them. One was a hanging bath, and the other was thrown to match the diameter of a commercial concrete stand.

      Thanks Callie and Pres. I am a newbie at this forum and help is always appreciated.


  2. I put the underglazes on "wet" clay- fresh from the slab roller.
  3. Buy one of those prefab sheds that dot back yards all across America. Or, if it is really "isn't very large", get a Rubbermaid trash container, and put it over the kiln when not in use. Keep it there with a kiln shelf. Or two, depending upon the sizes of your 'monsoons'. A third option, since you can unplug it, is to put it on wheels, and only take it outside when you fire it. (checking with Accuweather first, of course)
  4. Neil has covered the bases. The only thing I can ad is the Serial Number is the date of manufacture; last 2 digits is the year. And, at around $50 a pop, an old kiln can be pretty costly in a hurry.
