  1. Especially if it's a Steinway! Thanks Babs, I'll do that as well.
  2. Yes, I think really I knew this, but as one of the muds is here! Anyway test bars are ready, thanks for your help
  3. Yes it can be, but like you say it can't be porus underneath. I think I'll re-firng anyway as I'll have the space. thanks again
  4. Yes, thank you, I've got a cream liner, which this is and a shiny white, which I think is better, thanks for your help
  5. Yes crazing, Mike Dodd did mention that crazing is always there, but you just can't see it. I don't work with crazing on my pottery, unlike someone like Florian Gadsby, he's all about the crazing! high fire, functional ware. but my not intentional! Thanks for being in touch
  6. Thanks for this, actually that missing bit of info would have been handy! Is it possible to do the absorption test on one of my mugs, they have unglazed bottoms? Or does it have to be a bar, with no glaze at all? also, could I re-fire the mugs I have, it’s only four of them, at cone 10? Would that solve it? Many thanks for your time again
  7. Hi, thanks for your reply. Where do you get your clay from in the UK? I've only tended to see clay sold with the firing range? many thanks in advance
  8. Hi Min, I'm nost sure if I'm now replying to you. Anyway thank you, the clay is a UK clay: Stoneware V9G CATEGORY: Stoneware METHOD: Throwing, Modelling COLOUR: Buff TEXTURE: Smooth textured FIRING RANGE: 1120°c - 1280°c The addition of grogg gives good resistance to cracking and warping. V9G behaves well under oxidising and reduction conditions.
  9. Hi Neil and thanks for your very quick reply, so testing will commence. I'm wondering if it's just from the last firing as the cone 9 didn't bend fully anyway. And it's only been this one mug, I've got another one here from that firing so I may test it anyway. many thanks for your time
  10. Hello, I've been making mugs with the two glazes, as shown in the first photo. A customer contacted me to say that their coffee had seeped through the outside wall, photo attached. I asked for some inside photo's as well, but I can't seem to add any more. This is a stoneware clay, bisque fired to 05, glaze fired to 9. I've never had this before with this mug. Can anyone cast any light on what's happening here please? I should say that they have said they only used the mug twice, with instant coffee (I don't think the instant has any bearing!) I asked if it had been used in a microwave, but they said no. Thanks in advance.
  11. Sorry, replied in the wrong place, yes I'm in the uk. But now wondering if my kiln is too big the the power needed in my house, I'll only know by alling out an electrition.
  12. Thank you Neil, it's ok, I need to know this, it's far more serious than I realised. I really don't understand as the electrition was here only yesterday, changed the fuse, knew what the amp for the kiln was and said, it's fine. But you are saying it's not safe. I'm now wondering if I have enough power to accomodate this kiln, I need to get a new electrition out to give me more information.
  13. Hi, replying to both posts, it's a Paragon The Morgan kiln or TNF 273. The wiring diagram is https://www.paragonweb.com/files/wiringdiagrams/W2561111.PDF The USA info says Amps 48, voltage 240, watts 11500. The fuse in our house for the kiln says B40, we had it wired in properly with a new cable, the electrition came out and said he wasn't happy to go higher. It's late here so I won't be able to respond till tomorrow. thanks
