  1. Thank you for your feedback. I'll definitely try it with less important pieces. The kids are really looking forward to their pieces, so am I : )
  2. I have a lot of different items my students made and for the first time I am working with the Velvet Underglazes from Amaco, they are now bonedry, I mean really bonedry! Can I stack underglazed pots in underglazed pots to be bisqued or will they fuse. Would it also fuse on the shelves if some of the underglaze is on the bottom of the pots.

  7. Hello, I am new to this Forum and love to read the posts. I've just recently invested in starting up a small Ceramics studio and purchased all of my supplies from Amaco such as Clay, wheels, Kiln to tools. I was wondering if anyone can suggest any other good online companies with very competitive prices for their tools and supplies. I have found that Amaco sells en extensive range but rather basic tools. Thanks for the help. Melany
