  1. I finally got around to trying this and I'm pretty happy with the result. I have to admit that I basically used a pot that I didn't care too much about so that it wouldn't be a big loss. I would like to maybe create a shape that would allow for even more contact between shells and pot so that there is more of an effect? The shells I used were scallops, and I would like to try this with some other shell shapes....
  2. Thanks for the update and pictures Joseph! Interesting results! I am a little surprised the marks aren't bigger, but I guess it depends on the size of the piece and the size of the shell, how much of the shell is in contact with the pot.... Can't wait to try it myself!
  3. Joseph, I know this was 3 years ago, but what was the outcome of your tests?
  4. Just found this thread, I know it's a bit old, but hoping to revive it? I know a lot of people on this forum make their own glazes, but I am still new to this and (like several people above mentioned) I don't have the right space (or enough of it) to be mixing my own glazes. Now that we live in the time of COVID, I don't have access to the glazes at my local studio so... it's a lot of experimenting at home with brush on glazes and a very limited number of dipping glazes. To that end I bought a sample pack from Coyote to try out something new and see if there were any I would like to get a whole bucket of... I would love to see more photos of peoples favorite commercial glazes and glaze combinations. Here are some of my recents... These were bisque fired at ^04 and glazed to ^6. I used the "slow glaze" pre-program (Bartlett controller on my kiln) but after doing a lot of reading since these were fired, I am going to try programing my own slow fire to see if I it changes some of the effects. The Coyote website specifies that their glazes do best with a slow cool. Thanks in advance! I have been learning so much on this forum.
  5. One more follow-up to this as I just got a call from Olympic. My original distributor had cancelled my order because they didn't know when they would be able to re-open. Olympic called to see if I wanted to "convert the sale to a direct sale" so they are honoring all original pricing and will continue to make kilns. I was assured that all workstations there are more than 6 feet apart and everyone is safely working until they are told they must stop. One bright spot to my day. I hope everyone out there continues to stay safe!
  6. I spoke with someone at Olympic yesterday (I have a kiln currently in process with them) and they said they are able to work safely and will keep working until told otherwise. HOWEVER if your distributor is closed (like mine is) you won't get your kiln until they reopen and finish the process.
