  1. It's interesting what you both say about the single side glaze being less durable. I noticed after reviewing a few examples of single sided glaze bowls they are indeed thicker, I guess it's a compensation. Thanks guys, I think I have enough here start testing and looking for solutions.
  2. Oh, another topic I know next to nothing about. Well, I'm a glutton for punishment and enjoy a challenge. Are you aware of a particular substance needed in the mix for stability or less volatility?
  3. You bring up some interesting points that I need to consider regarding the finer details. My goal isn't to make something that looks overly delicate, instead for daily use. I'm making cutting profiles for plates, bowls and mugs in various sizes. I think the biggest plate is going to be about ΓΈ30cm. This is the style I'm going for, it looks about 3mm thick give or take to me. Clay I've not decided yet. I was hoping to leave the outside unglazed so wanted clay that turns blue grey and another clay that has a speckled tan colour when cooked at cone 6. I guess I need to go away and prototype between 3 and 5mm depending the size. Thanks you both for taking the time to help out.
  4. Hi I want to attempt to make profile moulds for a jigger jolly as I'm a novice and don't have the skill to throw by hand. My question relates to the final thickness of stoneware? I'm trying to straddle the line between durability and aesthetics. Again I'm referring to final thickness recommendations out of the kiln. I will infer a 10 to 12% allowance for shrinkage. I figure this is one of those how longs a piece of string sort of questions, but I guess I could get a roundabout answer from consensus or the average. Thanks
