  1. P.S. You can link to my Pinterest from my website and I have many nice Clay boards. 

  2. You know I’ve heard this from a vew tutorial videos!! That might not be a bad idea. It would certainly eliminate the issue with fragility and keeping one will allow me to track my progress!!! I like it.
  3. Hello! I’m having this exact issue with my Pacifica GT400. I bought it secondhand and basically just started using it with no issues. Now 7 months in the wheel is slowing down when centering. What was the solution for your issue? My thought is the belts, but I havent done any research yet. Started here with this forum!
  4. Thanks for all the information. I hadn’t considered the fragility when it comes time to moving, so thank you for that!! As well as the bits on humidity cycling, also helpful. I’ll have to come up with some sort of system, or perhaps fire them in another kiln. I’m learning something new everyday and I’m grateful this forum exists!!
  5. So I’m a newbie. We purchased a kiln and wheel, but the kiln still isn’t set up. At this point we’re debating moving to another city and purchasing a home there within about a year. To be honest, I’m in no rush to install and set up my kiln where we are now, and I’d rather just save my pennies and set it up at the new house. Which brings me to my question.... How long is too long to let your greenware (I think that’s what it’s called), sit around before firing? I’m under the impression that the danger when firing is in the pot being wet, not too dry. So if I create some things and don’t fire them for say a year (or longer)... what do you think?
  6. I’m working on my home studio set-up and find this helpful as mine will be in a back bedroom. The problem it’s also used as an office. I’m attempting to separate as much as I can right now, but it’s a struggle! I am limiting am trimming/glazing to outside right being to help with the dust issue, but overall I’m a bit concerned about some of the health hazards.
