    Welcome to the forum folks, you will find much to learn. One more bit of advice about running searches. . . Do a search in the main screen, not in a particular area as even though we try often posts get out of the best category for them.

    Hi Rhernan and welcome to the forum. Your question would be better placed in the Studio Operations and Making Work section rather than here in the Status Updates. This section is more for just casual comments about what's going on with people and their clay activities. Pres, the moderator of the Studio Operations section made a wonderful battery powered hand held extruder from an electric caulking gun, this is the link to it.

    Pres got a reaction from terrim8 in been trying some mold making. Think I prefer the wheel.   
    Mold making for me is not as immediate as wheel throwing. I make lots of mugs, each a little different even thought they start with same amount of clay. Making all the same would be boring on the wheel, but mold making not so much if I could get through the first part to the second part. However, I am not really interested in going with all the slip casting process.

    Pres got a reaction from Gabby in First of Communion presentation sets went out. 13 more to go out. Honey jars and mugs   
    They are the chalice and paten sets. They are used as a presentation to ordinands into the ministry with high community service, academic achievement and religious commitment. It is called the Hickman award. I have them posted in last years blog postings. My sets are completed with the Order of St. Luke logo, stamped on the plates which are actually larger than the standard paten that was used with the wafers for communion, but of late the churches are going to the broken bread communion and intinction. Intinction requires a wider bowl on the chalice to allow for dipping of the wafer or bread. Almost too wide to be drinkable, but not quite.
