  1. I just got offered a kick wheel this afternoon and am debating whether or not I have room for it.....T
  2. Sorry I have no experience with those glazes. Is the firing schedule you describe from Laguna? If so I would give it a try. T
  3. Ya, I'm thinking that the lighter ones got hotter, I agree they darker ones look better but if if I could get them all the same... refiring tonite and will see...T
  4. what glaze are you using? Sounds too cool for a cystaline glaze, or does you glaze just have little bits of glass in it? T
  5. holy wow, he is totally in the green! plus 7! where am i going wrong? T
  6. Hi there, So I fired six earthenware tiles which had been coated in cobalt oxide slip. Three of the tiles were lower down in the kiln than the other three. Now the lower down ones are very intense lovely blue and the slightly higher ones are slightly less blue. I fired these to 1000C with a soak of half an hour. They are for a house sign, so in effect they now dont match. Is it worth firing them again but reversing the positions to see if that helps. I just love ceramics! arrrgggg..... any suggestions appreciated. T
  7. Funny how that expression is becoming as overused as LOL. Interesting to think about how it is really used and what it means. Claypple, I think I remember you saying English is a second language. You probably speak it a lot better than I do. But it was good to kid you about the above after the ragging you gave me over bear/beer. Jim Its kinda like the weird smiley things, when was the last time you repeatedly winked at someone. creepy....T
  8. Good to know!! Thank you! Ever try them at ^6? I have fired them anywhere from 980C to 1020C.... it depends on what other glazes i fired with. T
  9. Don't they require a significantly slowed down cooling rate/soaking down to 760C to form crystals? Hi, since the crystals are actually just glass bits, no crystals are really being formed like in a crystaline glaze. The glass bits just melt and thats it. so no special cooling required...T Sorry question already answered...I just read down to the end now T
  10. Hi there, I have used the fire cracker and the sassy orange. You need to apply them thickly, they don't seem too runny, at least I have not had problems with that. If you look in my gallery, the sperm whale pod has some squid which are painted in the sassy orange (which actually is bright yellow). I only bought the smallest jars available as the colours are really screamy bright. I only use them in small doses. The glass crystals are very small and I have had no problem with the application. They are the size of big ish sand, so you can more them to a certain extent. Hope that helps...T P:S No special firing required I fire them up to 1020 C.

    Thanks and Gruetzi <sp> It was actually just a test thing that i made from a new batch of stoneware but then I liked him, I have some budgies birds in the studio and the hair is their nesting material. T
  12. That looks like a really cool technique, I haven't heard of it either....but then I don't get out much. Please post us a link or more info so I can see just what its about. Thanks for sharing T
  13. what the.......I wonder if you can get it with a matching helmet...T
  14. I have not done bottles before, but I would just make a bunch of necks so you can test your shrinkage, then you would know if your stopper fits without having to fire loads of bottles. Just a thought... T
  15. Wow that is pretty big, you can't tell from the picture. I thought that they might be sugar and cream sized.... still I love the legs. T
  16. Being kinky? Wow, someone gave you a negative rating for that comment? But no, the person is not included. Fairly certain they have laws against the buying and selling of human beings. I mentioned this to Jim, when he was interested in borrowing my human clay pugging machines. Hahahaha I just gave it a positive rating...so now we are back to zero.... is there no humour left ?? T So did I. Now, it's +1. Check out my rating. I'm going where no one has gone before. I'm anxious to see what is below "BAD". Jim DIRTY DOG comes after BAD, but don't worry you are still at POOR, yes Jim POOR... you will just have to spend more actual time making stuff cause thats where the money apparently is. In the meantime you better just stand in the corner and criticize yourself.... T

  18. Well, you know, in case somebody wants to try a taste of glaze or else. I actually has a collection of real warnings on real products: Instruction on Airways packet of peanut: [1] Open packet [2] Eat peanuts On Pick 'n Pay peanuts: Warning: contain nuts On a bread pudding: Product will be hot after heating On a hair dryer: Do not use while sleeping On a bar of Dove soap: Directions: use like regular soap On a frozen dinner: Serving suggestion: Defrost That's great, I had a box of cheerios which said pour into a clean bowl, really?! T
  19. OK i wll give you a hundred bucks ifyou include the guy sitting at it, I can always use a slave..... T
