  1. Omg, red lead glazes make me salivate uncontrollably. That rich color, hnnghh...


    But, hey! Drooling aside, I have a GREAT old book from the 70s (1st edition in 1949) that has a buncha lead recipes in it that are JUST GORGEOUS. Dunno if you have looked it up or not, but it's called "The Complete Book of Pottery Making" by John B. Kenny. It's mostly a beginner book, but the lead glazes in there are simply scrumptious! Definitely worth looking into.


    Man, lead carbonate is so beautiful. If you get a big enough chunk, you can cut it like a diamond, and OH dat bling... ^_^

    P.s. Welcome to the forums! You have no idea how happy I am to FINALLY see another lowfirer here! ^_^

  2. I wonder if the Admins might consider making the challenge its own section, like "In The Studio," for example! Lotsa people seem interested, so this has the potential to REALLY jam up other forum topics. It'd be a great way to keep things nice 'n tidy, not to mention easy to find! ^_^

    My topic suggestion is "heritage." Like, make a piece that's about one's cultural background! ^_^ We have a pretty diverse group here; could be fun!



    They are rated 06-05. Content as followed:


    Autumn green: 1/3 full

    Foliage green satin: 3/4 full

    Glacier green: 80% full

    Aqua satin: 2/3 full

    Canyon glo: 1/3 full


    I would totally sell these to you for like $40 plus shipping. Problem is that it is colder than a penguin's big toe up here in Washington state and these bottles WILL FREEZE and are made of glass! :( Crapppp... well, stinker.



  4. Thanks, everyone! One reason why I work in earthenware us because my kiln came with a blank ring, and my back is far too screwed to remove it. Another reason is that it is cheaper to fire in low temps than mid-range.The final reason is that my whole studio is set up for lowfire work. It would cost a mint to replace everything...

    Okies, the gargoyles will be outside for late spring, summer, and early fall. :) And, yes, this is of spiritual significance. In the Dakotan countryside, there is a lot of dark energies present from all the horrible things that happened to the Natives there. The Medicine Men arevery busy around the Rez...some of the stories they tell can give you nightmares for weeks! :(


    I hate my phone--sorry for all the errors!!!
