  1. Thank you Marcia.. I asked others in my guild and they seem to have the same reaction. "Huh?.. who knew?". To be fair, when we recycle, everything gets thrown together.. stoneware.. porcelain in a large drum and then our claymaker puts it through a complete re-mixing, etc. Maybe the clerk was saying that one couldn't recycle it as its own clay body back to an original "Coleman Porcelain". Anybody else have input?
  2. I thought I would try some Coleman Porcelain from my local supplier. The clerk said it was a great clay body but "you can't recycle it... something to do with its ingredients". She gave me no other instructions or guidance. Anybody else hear of this or can give me info? TIA
  3. Hey all. Been awhile since I've participated in the Forum. This is my re-introduction. I'm a re-acquainted potter having been away from clay for 30 years until Jan 2014. I was actually reviewing these to come up with a different way of developing them to lighter-weight and comfortable designs. http://community.ceramicartsdaily.org/gallery/album/1043-teacoffee-pots/

    Tea/Coffee Pots

    After 30 years away from clay, I'm trying to regain my skills, so the process of bringing all the components to make these pieces is part of my re-development as a functional potter.

  12. Thanks for the welcome, Evelyne.. I'm just (re)scratching the surface re: this area of art. The brush work was done during the greenware stage with a black slip after I had stretched the form. I tried to fully describe my experience/process on the Wordpress blog. I intend to get around to the profile and sharing via the gallery as time permits. In short; I'm a media arts professional that has re-found the ceramic arts as a part-time passion. Hope to contribute more in the future. https://mudchucker.wordpress.com/
