  1. Wonderful form. Hope you post a pic when it is finished.
  2. Love seeing the work of new graduates. Lets see more of this.

      Agreed- love to see new generations getting involved.

  3. love this stuff. Do I see redwoods? Would you share the moss pebble glaze recipe? love that look.
  4. Ok here is a question. Do you work in other forms of art like painting, drawing or whatever? How much cross over is there to your ceramic work?
  5. Maybe illumite? We have one speckled green glaze that uses it. Speckles are black.
  6. Well I don't know your firing temp but I fire to cone 10 and use underglazes with clear over without issues. However, I used underglazes in Raku with a clear (80-20) over it and the underglazes ran, even though it was only fired to cone 06. I suspect that my clear glaze, which is 80 percent gherstly borate, a powerful flux agent, caused the underglaze to run because of the high amount of flux. You might consider the ingredients in your clear glaze and the firing temperature. This is all supposition but something to think about. GL. Rakuku
  7. Great stuff, love all the decoration. Must be hours and hours of work

  9. love that there are loads of new pics in the gallery. keep 'em coming

  10. We use Purple Haze at our studio. Its popular and almost always great.
  11. Well we like our wood table built of 2x8 boards. But whatever you do, get chairs or stools on wheels. makes mopping much easier. rakuku

      yup, can never have enough lavender houses

  14. yep, I use a piece of old bed sheet or even newspaper when rolling small slabs. I also have those special paper mats that you can use to roll out slabs on a slab roller without getting any texture that canvas leaves. I call them my "rolling papers". have one set for dark clay and one for white. But I agree wood rolling pins are best. We also have some pieces of 3 inch pcv pipe that work pretty well. rakuku
