    Karen; I am liking your images-esp. the rabbit and the ravens.Great work! Tom [TJR]
  2. Put a glaze test in a friend's gas kiln on Friday. I am loading my kiln on Tues.Her kiln unloads on Thurs. I see a problem.

  3. Diesel; Let me get this straight. Do you begin with a Celadon glaze that already has 2% iron in it, or do you get the iron from the clay body and the copper is added to a plain clear glaze to get the copper red? TJR.
  4. I buy those Dollar store one inch sponge brushes. I wash them out with hot water, but they gum up after several sessions and must be tossed. I think you can buy four for a buck. Good value. TJR.
  5. Gismo; I am a great believer in walking softly on the back of the Earth. I recycle all my clay, I use rain water, I save my glaze washings, but some things you cannot do. Like recycling wax resist. Good on you for trying. TJR.
  6. Old Lady; That was a great tour. Thank-you for taking the time to describe it all to us. TJR.
  7. Made me laugh! Wax resist is cheap. Buy some more. TJR.
  8. Do not know the word smalt. Sounds kind of antiquated. Maybe European. You could also look up enameling. TJR.
  9. The technique you are describing is called China painting. It is a very low temperature technique where you apply colour to an already glazed tile. The Chinese would apply red enamel to their already fired blue and white porcelain pottery. Ask your supplier about china painting. TJR.
  10. I've got a crap load of old earthenware clay, bagged up, rock hard dry that I am going to reconstitute and then fire Majolica. But then those stoneware and porcelain glazes keep sucking me back in. So beautiful...so little time.. so beautiful...[sound fades out]. TJR.
  11. It is important to know the temperature at which the brick was fired to. Once this is determined, I think you could spray glaze on for that temperature and re-fire the. The temp. is probably as low as the manufacturer could go to harden the bricks into permanency. I would start with cone 04-I am just guessing You do not want to fire so hot that the brick becomes molten. TJR..
  12. Giselle; Buck up! Wrong venue for your work. Show was too short. You were undercut by the $12.00 mug guy. Keep looking. I like the two day sale myself. This gives people the chance to tire kick and then return with wads of cash. TJR.
  13. Ray; I hate to say it, but I like the one on the left better. Colour. Placement of handle. Am I missing something. Educate me. Tom.
  14. Beautiful work. So,you are saying stoneware? Could easily be earthenware as well. Like the decoration. Tom.
  15. You caught me! I apprenticed with Michael Cardew in 1978/79. Once in a life-time experience. Had to come back to Canada though. I was broke and had been away for two tears. Tom.
