  1. Anyone have tips on teaching new students to throwing how to keep their hands still. I tell them to brace their elbows on their thighs etc. I also say make a fist so they can understand that they need to contract their forearm muscles. Any other ideas?
  2. This might not be the right forum if not let me know. I plan to travel to Oaxaca in February 2020. Wonder if anyone knows of a studio which I can use maybe twice a week. I know there are touristy workshops and I am interested in the local clay artists but this is not what I’m asking.
  3. I want to make planters using black stoneware clay. I think I’d like to try white terra sig as decoration among other ideas.Anyone out there have any examples.
  4. I'm interested in feedback on using earthenware in making of casseroles for ovenware. I glaze fire to cone 04. In the past I've made casseroles but I've received negative comments from fellow (stoneware) potters. Thanks for your comments.
  5. Doesn't look like anyone on this forum has any suggestions. Does anyone have a suggestion where else I can post?
  6. I plan to travel to SMA February 2018. I'm on the wait list for studio Barro but does anyone know of other potters willing to provide limited access? I'm looking at 2 maybe 3 days per week for the month of February.
  7. Presently I bisque at 08 and fire at 04. I think according to the article I should bisque higher can I bisque and fire at the same cone?
  8. Thanks for your reply. The 2 Frits are 3195 and 3134 do you suggest I replace one of the Frits with 3110 or just add a bit?
  9. I was using a red earthenware clay body covering it with white slip and decorating over that with a variety of underglazes. I was using Deb's clear as my glaze. I fired to cone 04. Then the glaze began to shiver off. So I switched to a white clay body eliminated the slip fired a bit lower soaked the kiln for 30 minutes and you guessed it the problem persists. My preference is to use a red clay body with slip and the underglazes. I used Pete Pinnell's slip recipe. I know its a glaze body not fitting but wonder how to fix the problem. Plus not all the pots all the time are affected but I need a reliable glaze. Am at at a loss.
