  1. I suggest you watch this excellent video - great idea and it works!! credit to Evolution Stoneware - lovely lady x have fun and merry xmas to all you potters out there.
  2. Actually Pei I had same problem...various firing temps tested but never been able to get a 'fur' look as it suggests, so you are not alone . I bought quite a few at the time so just use them as normal underglaze colours with a transparent glaze on top. I'too would be happy to hear from anyone who has managed to get a 'velvet' finish - tips welcome..
  3. It looks very much like a chamber pot to me...."Chamber" is an old-fashioned term for bedroom. It was used as a portable toilet in the bedroom at night. The chamber pot is also known as a jerry, a guzunder, a po (possibly from French: pot de chambre) or a thunder pot, or a potty. Obviously slip cast with transfer design.
  4. Maybe they sent you the bis bowls to do practice 'designs ' on before going into production? why don't you just ask your company if they have made a mistake?
  5. Anyone in England have any suggestions on heat source ideas?
  6. would love to try the silk screen method but would n't have a clue where to start. Don't you need specialist equipment? I bought a lazer printer last year to try and make my drawings into transfers as a start but I must have used the wrong paper or something because it did n't work at all.
  7. Hi, I am interested to know how you lot keep warm in your studios besides the heat of the kiln? Please don't say electric heaters because they cost a fortune to run. I am usually bulging with that many layers of clothing - I look a right sight haa especially when someone comes in to potentially buy a pot... oops Ottery ...sorry Pottery of course it should read.
  8. here here my goals for 2016 is the same as Joseph!! 1. Find the clay body I want to use in 2016 quickly. 2. Nail down some glazes on said clay body. 3. Sell pottery. 4. make Profit. but before that I need to determine what it is I aim to make...I am in England. :0) anyone else in England? near Lincolnshire ?

  10. Thank you x I have only got the one...I found it in the street as a chick, days old, amongst some pigeons!! who promptly flew off as I drove up leaving this sad little thing. I thought at first it was just a sparrow fallen from a nest but low and behold it grew and grew and turned out to be this beautiful fluffy silkie chicken we call 'Chips'
  11. I also applied to the 'Great British Pottery Throw Down programme' by Love Productions and can proudly say I got all the way through to the filming day at a lovely pottery in London!! Whaahoo! we had a great time and the film crew were lovely, but we were sworn to secrecy so cannot let too much out. I did n't quite make it to the last ten but still, I'll be glued to the box on Tuesday nights at 9 BBC2 - can't wait.
  12. Hi there all you potters., I am in England. I'd like to use my own sketches on my pots. Can anyone recommend where (in England ) to get suitable water slide decal paper to create transfers/decals for firing on my pottery. I have a Brother laser printer, thanks in advance.
  13. Hi, does anyone print their own decals from their own sketches for use on pottery? if so can you share the knowledge of how and what sort of printer and paper to use please?
