  1. I think the Paragon (which I have one) will be too small for you very quickly as your only kiln. I got & use mine for testing only.
  2. http://www.standforthearts.com/take-the-pledge It free and cool looking.
  3. Throw with clay as soft as you can get. Get a pugger mixer and do not wedge any more. Try slab, Jigger and cast forming objects. That is what I do. Warm water helps when throwing.
  4. Bisque, Low fire ^06 with clear glaze then Pit fire with dense material like saw dust, the clear glaze will suck in carbon. Have done it.
  5. Give them away on craigslist. they are usable. If closer I would take them.
  6. I think a good non pottery book that would apply would be Dave Ramsey's "Financial Peace" now called "The Total Money Makeover."
  7. Wanted to show that I got it built with scrap metal I had. spent $7 on wire crimps and eye hooks. Will serve my purpose well. Thanks Ken. It has detachable legs for storage and transport. Still have to put handle on it and find another shim sheet.
  8. I will try one or two at ^06 for myself to see. Will fire rest at ^6 Individual very experienced, wheel thrown white commercial low fire clay with ^06 commercial glaze. Yea very experienced potter ought to know!
  9. If mugs are bisque cone 04 and then glazed cone 06, How durable would they be in home use? Microwave and dishwasher?
  10. I have both wheels also and agree with Benzine. I paid that much for just my shimpo used.
  11. I have some physical issues so mechanically rolling the clay is needed. Also embosses patterns of cloth & lace evenly.
  12. Did you use cables with the PVC ? is this the one you made? http://ceramicartsda...wn-slab-roller/ http://ceramicartsdaily.org/ceramic-studio-equipment/slab-rollers/how-to-make-your-very-own-slab-roller/
  13. did you rinse off the bisque before glazing? How did you apply glaze? Dip, pour, brush......
  14. I am not allowed open flame or sharp objects! My studio is concrete block for a good reason! Standing up on kick wheel in motion is a good reality check.
