      Yes but looks like we have to wait. Commitments here will take some time. You'll have to post pictures of the new digs, new kilns...

  3. I have an old Paragon from the 70's and I am getting new elements right now & a new kiln-sitter part. They do seem to keep going with a bit of maintenance and definitely not as expensive as keeping an old Volvo running!
  4. Just had an issue trying to fire some items with slip that contained iron chromate at a city studio. I wasn't aware that iron chromate was that toxic but I am now. I'm saving them though to fire in an outdoor gas kiln. A lot of old glaze ingredients can be hazardous but I agree with you Mark about risks and handling things safely.
  5. Just think- all those nice polite customers also drive cars.
  6. yep- its a mid range porcelain called polar ice- probably like frost.

    Pendant Light

    seems like a lot of websites are acting weird lately- administrators must be tinkering?
  8. Thank you! I couldn't load my third picture either. Oh well.
  9. From the album: Pendant Lights I make

    I started out calling this light Nodding Amaryllis but it looks more like Solomons Seal.
  10. Yes, I agree, especially as it is such a long haul over the mountains- I'm in Calgary. I was hoping someone would know something though.
  11. Ok- got another invite- this one's in Vancouver, BC. It is the International Urban Art Festival. Anyone ever heard of this one? Reviews???? As usual I could only find their own blurbs.

    hardware stores or maybe even the dollar store

    works great! less expensive than the sponge made for it and a perfect fit.
  14. I used to use "sponge on a chop stick" to clean deeper cylinders. Last year I bought a nice sponge on a stick but was too cheap to buy the replacement sponges, until I found these paint sponge rollers at the hardware store- they are very inexpensive & come in packs of 4 and fit the stick perfectly.

    cone 4,5,6

    No- they're not lined up in a nice row. I'm sloppy when I make my own holders- better off with the store bought forms!

    Have to make a new one due to an unsightly chip on the rim.

    just right for putting plastic plant pots in but they have to be kept dry so I take the plants out to water them, then put the plants back in.
