  1. I am in need of a few good books that have 1740-1790 ish pottery pictures for North America. Stoneware, red ware, earthenware. Mugs, tankards, plates and crocks are what my main interest is at this time. Any advice before I buy and just hope it’s a good book is much appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Shimpo Whisper wheel works really good for me. Very quite, free spins when not pushing on the pedal and reversible. Did i mention its quite.
  3. http://www.seattlepotterysupply.com/ These guys had several used and new wheels when i was there last month. I though the prices were very reasonable.
  4. Most hardware stores will have a 3/4" x 3/8" Black Hex Reducing Bushing, that will adapt the 3/8 hose connection to your kiln.
  5. Thanks Mark, the B23 i forgot to add the HT.
  6. I have an opportunity to buy a Cress B27 HT for $850 that has been use very little or a Cress B23 for $500 that has never even been plugged in to the wall, it is eight years old. The lady that has/had them passed away before she could use it. My question is, is there any difference in the firing success between these two? Or something i should be aware of ? Any advise is greatly appreciated. I will mostly fire to cone 04 with it, occasionally glaze to cone 6. Thanks.
  7. Leave the slop water in a 5 gallon bucket until it settles, pour off the cleanest water from the top and let whats left in the bucket evaporate. Sponges also help to suck up the clean water from the top. Reclaim the dry stuff thats left in the bottom of the bucket, i don't mix it with the good clay tho, it will have stuff from the floor in it.
  8. Thank you very much Marcia! I have only two years experience in this pottery making field so far but i really do love all aspects of it, especially the reduction glaze colors. I have several reduction glaze recipes so far that i like, i am very exited to try some of yours!!
