  1. I am missing the moderators and key resource/info people who are (recently) not here anymore---the place just ain't the same. 

     

  2. Ack! My kiln with brand new elements just misfired. Now I have to wait until it cools down before I can start to investigate. Aggravation.

      Mea: would very much like to know the final verdict on this problem. I just put new elements, relays, and controller in my primary test kiln. Even replaced a fair amount of the wiring harness. After just three firings: getting an FTL code already.  Stumped here.

  4. In the midst of rebuilding my tower. CPU was 6yrs old, went dead. Requires a new Mobo, CPU and RAM as everything was out of date. . .no longer manufactured, and none out there. Oh well, should be up and running tomorrow.

  5. Just peeked in my kiln full of test tiles with wood ash mixtures, pastes, and soda washes. Some very very promising results. Can't wait for the next 250F to cool so I can open that beast and spend days looking at every inch of every tile! It has been way too long since I have run a kiln load full of tiles.

  12. How did your further testing go?

    My father passed two weeks ago, and I want to use his ashes in trinket trays for the family.  Will also use them in some fused glass work.

  13. Home alone again. Husband returned to Va. to work. He was telecommuting for 2 of the three weeks he was here. He did manage to do some jam sessions at the Snowcreek saloon. Mother-in-law spent a week over Christmas with us. I am now back to the studio. I did some reorganizing of layout to improve heat flow. its nice in there when the temperature i up to high 30s. Around -10 the studio temperature went down to 55. I have a kerosene backup if I need it.

    Happy to be in the studio again.

  14. Will be heading home on Monday late. Having a great time. Very little pottery. Hope to be up and running by Wed. However, we are not looking forward to the frigid temps.

  15. Happy New Year! I'm thrilled to now have  someone to help with some of the non-clay tasks needed to set up an online store, which means I can focus more time/energy on making the pieces I need to make. 

  16. Decided to make four "hidden masks" specifically for the next anagama fire (NHIA) in April.   And some stands to display them on a flat surface, in addition to being wall pieces. Psyched!  

  17. just received a copy of a new article about my work from Revista Ceramica published in Spain. Beautiful photos. Very impressive. I am delighted to be in it. The editor remembered me from an article i wrote in the 90s on Los Hornos Arabesque, 3-story kilns in the town where I lived during my Fulbright. A similar article on those kilns was published in Ceramics Monthly in 1989. 

  18. Folks, I will be away for about 10 days. No. . . not more hunting. . . My wife and I are going to the Southern Caribbean, on a cruise. It is our 45th anniversary, and has been planned for several months now. Also, I will not have the quiz and the question of the week this week or next week. I will be dropping in now and then til Friday, but then not certain if I will be on afterwards.

  19. It is really WHITE up here in the great white North. High today 2 F. and the snow crystals are minuscule...but accumulating. Light weight shoveling anyway.

     

  20. Last day of sales-then time off.I have been making at least 3 drops a day to outlets and today is the last day of that as well-ya.

  21. Greetings of the season to everyone. 

  22. Tis the time of year, bring on Good Cheer, Respect for all, Peace on Earth and Blessings of Prosperity, Love and Happiness.

  24. I am out of porcelain.  I am out of clear glaze.  I do not want to mix more right now.  I discovered today that I need to change two elements due to glaze landing on them (I do not know how they have been firing so well) All signs are pointing towards hanging it up for 2017!
