  1. The University i use to work at wouldn't lead a paper clip out. And you could be reprimanded and or fired if caught. Seriously.
  2. Hi LeeU, yes, still enjoying the clay. I had some set backs but i manage. It just ashame this virus has put things on hold. No shows and such. But on the brighter side, it's time to do those things that have been waiting to be done. Like glaze test. Hope you are doing well.
  3. Thank you all for helping me. I really appreciate it. Stay safe.
  4. Thanks. I do buy local. It's good to support people in the community. Thank you for your help. I learned some lessons on my purchase. In the future I won't be so haste.
  5. They look good and not to expensive. Especially if they can be less stressful. I just never thought to ask about shelf options when i was getting them. Should have asked. My bad. Where do you sell them from. Company? Location?
  6. Ouch! So I am finding out. It's the time lost that is really the ass biter. And just before the Covid19 virus came and ruined all the fun of doing shows and Farmers Market.
  7. Neil, the first 8 came fright with the Kiln. But on a separate pallet. They looked fine when I opened the 2 boxes. This was last October. I was very disappointed and when I sent pictures to Paragon, i had to wait a month to get new ones. And that happened again on the replacements. I will just go with the old and new ones in combo now. Later I will go get some of those 1/2" x 26" from Roadrunner Ceramics in San Antonio. What I didn't think to do at first. I love those people at RC. Oh I did tell them at Paragon that maybe they could check with The Ceramic Store and have them check their

  9. Hi Mark, When I got them brand new I fired them to cone 03 with only kiln wash by themselves with no bisqueware. And then in the next firing I fired to cone 6. Everything was okay till I fired another 2 ^6 firings and I found these 26" shelves had cracks at the long side at the middle. And it happened to all 8. I got replacements and again it happened, but only two cracked. But two replacements crack into many pieces in shipping. Those were replaced. I went to my clay supplier and bought (2 )1/2" x 13" x 26" used any they are perfect after many firings. Go figure.
  10. Hi Neil, thanks for your help. The kiln is a Paragon Viking 28. 12 sided. These new shelves i got from The Ceramic Store via Paragon are 3/4" x 13"x 26". The smaller shelves i want to use are 5/8" x 10.5" x 21". From my old Duncan 1029n kiln. This is what I came up with, but I have never tested it.
  11. Hi everyone, been a while, but it's complicated. But I could use some advice. Again. I had many of my new shelves crack at the center. They are not broken. And I do not use them. Thoughts on this? Also, I have many different size shelves from old broken kilns of different size. So can I use diffent shelf combinations in a ^6 firing? If so, what would be the safe and best way to do this?
  12. We've been learning from many craft experts on CAD and YouTube for years. This is a great way to teach and learn. Students can watch a lesson over ad over. Make videos and they will learn. And there are some potters that charge for this through some sort of payment form of YouTube, Google business. Good luck, stay well, be safe.
  13. Hi Pres, Can you post some examples, or were we can see your process. Thanks. ~Marko
