    sloan.quinn got a reaction from pipefitter508 in Laguna Crystalline Glaze   
    Just out of curiosity, is it possible to come up with a crystalline glaze that doesn't craze? I've never tried any, but nearly everything I've read about them suggests that crazing is a big issue - unless, of course, you just accept the crazing as the cost of the effect...

    sloan.quinn reacted to ayjay in Chattering?   
    I am far from from being an authority on this (or much else), but I've recently started playing with the idea myself and have made precisely two chattered pieces.
    I did mine on the wheel, right after they were thrown. I also made my own chattering tool so it's possible that that may not be working correctly either. One was only bisque fired at the weekend and it's awaiting glaze and the other I've dared to take a pic and put it below.
    They are a long way from the finished article, but we all have to start somewhere and I am still experimenting and enjoying experimenting.
    Hopefully someone will be along who knows more than me.
    Edit: I took so long writing that and taking pics that they already have.

    No. I would never give up clay! As Sloan puts it a bit gruesome but to the point: only if the tools (hands, arms) are missing I will give up. But then again...

    it is not fair to post all those wonderful pictures to the gallery without telling us.   if it is 12/19 or later, anyone reading this stop and look at guinea's gallery.

    If they're that picky, they probably have healthy egos, too. Make picture frames, featuring their most attractive Facebook photo. Maybe a little gold luster?

    If this doesn't keep you out of trouble, nothing will
    I don't know how widespread this stuff is, but I'm going to shamelessly name drop and say that Sarah Pike turned me on to it. (She used it to teach classes, not on her own work.) My local arts centre is currently testing it as well, and it is really user friendly and very colour responsive. I'm beginning my own rounds of testing next week.

    My son who just moved to a humid island wanted coasters for Christmas , they are on the large size the center is  raised and unglazed so the cup won't stick to it.   The edge  has a rim  to keep sweat from  glasses from running on the table.  I quickly carved out some grooves in geometric patterns in the center to help with the moisture and add some interest.  I just used a clear glaze on the  red terracotta so they were once fired, it took me two days, I needed to get them in the mail.  I didn't want to spend a lot of time on them,  when they move back they are leaving most of there belongings there.  Denice

    Heck yeah! What good is it to be a potter that makes dishes if you can't make your own dishes? That's like the cobbler's kids running around with no shoes.

    sloan.quinn got a reaction from Evelyne Schoenmann in Qotw: Is Art Pointless?   
    I think I'd be hard-pressed not to point out - probably in a rather scathing manner - that unless you live in a hole you dug and never come out of it, it's impossible not to encounter some form of art, and *gasp!* you might actually enjoy it! It may not be "fine art", but art is everywhere.
    And then I'd probably give him a coffee mug and tell him it's because he needs something beautiful in his life.

    I found this picture taken by a friend. It looks like an art installation somewhere. I don't know where she saw it but I thought others might like it.

    You should try ice fishing . . . much safer...
    Tried it and couldn't get the ice to bite. I even put cream on the hook......No luck.
    Now my dad was a great fisherman. One evening we were fishing below Whiskeytown reservior, not too far from Mark's neck of the woods. He was fly fishing and went to whip the fly into the stream. The fly never made it. A bat caught it in mid-air. It was quite the event...
    Of course it was not as big as the king salmon. Then again, the king salmon couldn't fly.
