    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. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Beautiful work. So,you are saying stoneware? Could easily be earthenware as well. Like the decoration. Tom.
  12. 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.
  13. Nancy; I apprenticed with Michael Cardew in 1978/79. One year. Seth was there as well. Tom
  14. Great stuff. Love the messy studio. Looks like mine. Tom.
  15. Took the hammer to a bunch of runny glazed mugs. Felt great!

      I just gave away some shards for a gardener who wanted to try discouraging moles by mixing them into the soil near his roses.

      I drooped a jar of the deepest and darkest glaze all over the carpet in my friend's retail shop. Scraped and cleaned like crazy with limited success. She took it in stride, but i felt horrible.

  23. I like those nesting slab trays, and the purple mug. I also have a purple glaze that I use all the time. Tom.
  24. Hey; I like the mugs. I would love to be able to soda fire. Great work. Tom.
