  1. So excited My first regional entry and one of my submissions has been chosen.


  2. Disappointed (with emphasis).  When you open the kiln excited to see vibrant colours on decals (12 pieces) and what you actually get is grey on white.:(

      Maybe my decals are different.  I fire them to 017  which is around 1300 F.  Are you working with degrees Centigrade?

      Good job on making lemonade out of lemons!  :D

      Yes I fire to cone 8 1260 Celcius.

      Maybe your decals are different than mine, but the 3rd firing I do for decals is at a much lower temp.  Perhaps that is why yours lost all their color?  I found Milestone decals to have a wealth of information about application and firing.  I think they also have some youtube videos.  


  3. I've got Mudtools!!! And Xiem carving tools. If you don't live in Africa then you don't understand how exciting this is These type of tools are just not available over on this side of the planet

  4. Hi, I updated my gravatar just now and now I can't see anyone else's!! What did I do wrong? I don't like seeing empty spaces when I've grown used to seeing everyone

  5. I'm having to work out systems for making pots , ince my back has been complaining is a screaming voice. Scar tissue from previous back surgeries is pressing on a nerve bundle. Every movement is very painful. sigh

      I have my wheel level to my bellybutton, so I can sit or stand. It helped my back. Best wishes.

      I have psoriatic arthritis and a dozen disc herniations in my spine, and well... I parted ways with me wheel. It was really depressing for me, and I grieved terribly. After pouting a bit, I got my tools 'n started handbuilding. It's sooo much kinder to my body, and lotsa fun! ♥

      you got some very nice pieces.


  7. Attended the first day of a raku workshop yesterday. Was great fun but I'm a little disappointed with the result from the traditional firing. Looks very flat and may have been underfired. Day 2 today.

  8. So excited about my first saggar fireing. I think it was quite successful. Just signed up for a Raku workshop, I've been wanting to try this for a long time

      Andrea: will give you credit for being bold and adventurous. You are bold to dive into many new things since I have known you. Go girl!!

  9. Took out a turquoise glaze firing yesterday. Hangs head in shame. streaky, pinholes and white areas :(. They were on order too

    1. Roberta12


      So sorry. The learning curve is steep at times.....hope you can figure out what happened.


    2. glazenerd


      Post some pics in a thread;p perhaps someone will know the fix.

  10. What a mess. Just had my thermocouple replaced and I've looked into the kiln and it's a mess!!! Shelves have broken and needless to say all the pieces have crashed into each other. A total write off. Some nice stuff in there as well

      What?! Noooooooo! :( :( :(

  11. Sorry about the duplicate posting of my slip question. I don't suppose I can remove it.

  12. Kiln packed for overnight drying and ready to bisque tomorrow
