      Good luck, how long can an hour be?

      Advice given on this forum" go make some pots!"

  2. Spent the first day of the new year making pots. Such a happy day.

  3. Kiln broken! :-( Turned my attention to glaze making research.

  4. Waiting for my kiln to cool down. It's like torture.

      The advice given to me was to go make more pots! Kinda works...

      When I am testing new glaze additions, I get that hurry up feeling.

      We are waiting with you..Babs is right to make more vessels. It makes the time seem shorter!

  5. Thanks for this- I was searching this forum for a very similar problem. Off to fix my wheel squeak now! :-D
  6. Just threw off the hump for the first time. Can't wait to get more clay to try a larger amount! A very exciting evening all round. :-D

      Congrats! It is a major time saver when producing small pieces.

      Major time saver-when doing things like chalice bowls, stems and small vessels.

      Throwing off the hump isn't for me. I usually make knobs off the hump. The last time I made copies of 17th century tax accessor's ink wells with small handles on each side.

      That worked pretty good.

  7. This is really nice! Did you stain it before the transparent glaze or did you add stain to the glaze? A very pretty effect.
