  1. Ah, thank. I always thought Sgraffito was going through black while this is going through 4 different clay colors.
  2. Hi all, I have wondered this for years. What is the name of this technique where the colored clay is in layers and then the artist scrapes away clay to show the colors underneath? Here is the link for credit purposes:
  3. Hi, I actually fire stuff with Alison!! She is amazing. But her kiln doesn't do the heavy soda that I really love and am trying to learn. Thank you, Nancy
  4. Good morning, I've been looking to find a soda firing workshop or kiln open to outsiders within driving distance of NY. I do have a teacher who does soda firing, but I like the look of Caroline Currier's work and I don't know anyone who does that, as I'm told that amount of soda is tough on the kiln. Alternatively, if anyone knows how to make that kind of kiln, I would love to collaborate on building one, and then open it up to the community who may be interested. Thanks for any information, Nancy
  5. I looked at it last night before I went to sleep. The thermocouple is looking very crispy! Thank you! Nancy
  6. Hi, I have a Skutt kiln. It has been off for a week and it is registering as 489 degrees, when it is clearly about 60 here. When I go to set a cone fire, I get to the end, the Hold, and it says FAIL. i can hit the Start button several times to get it to go ON, but immediately goes off and says FAIL. I can't find my booklet, and online help is not good. Anyone know what it could be? Thank you, Nancy

I have a couple of questions: - What kind of clay??? I have low fire red, Laguna 55 cone 6 whitish, Laguna 66 cone 6 handbuilding clay, a cone 10 woodfire clay and I think I have a cone 10 B Mix with grog. - I'm still not good at making wide flat things, so can I use my roller to roll out clay and then cut it to the desired shape? - If my clays aren't good, where would I get an appropriate clay and w
  8. Morning, After a fruitless google search using what are probably the wrong terms and a search of my brain where I know this knowledge was stored at one time, I am flummoxed. I can't remember how to cut feet out of the bottom of a jar/cyliner/bowl. A client wants a piece with feet like the ones on this antique piece, and I need help. How do I cut feet like these out? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Nancy
  9. Thank you, Mark. You are generous, as always, with your knowledge. Nancy
  10. Mark C, I meant the tankless compressor from Harbor Freight. This one here: https://www.harborfreight.com/high-volume-low-pressure-spray-gun-kit-44677.html Thanks, Nancy
