  1. Thanks, hope I can use my space that efficiently!
  2. Thanks so much for your reply, your encouragement and for sharing your photos of your studio. Good point on the wheel but part of what I live about throwing pots is the kick wheel feeling. Also, I have a fairly compact one. I will add to my profile that I am live in the Capital Region of upstate New York. Good suggestion.
  3. That’s great and inspiring as well! I have only gotten as far as leaning toward a 7 cubic foot L&L kiln and researching sturdy work/wedging table and some shelves. Will be putting in a 14’x12’ shed that will also be used for gardening. Just need to nail down clays and glazes, did out some of my ancient pottery tools and jump in. Will surely report progress. thanks again.
  4. Thanks for your reply and the links. Will check them out. I am starting totally from scratch except for a kick wheel that I have been dragging around with me all these years. I plan on getting a cone 10 electric kiln so I am pretty wide open to new directions. My first and deep love is Eurpoean earthenware but I also loved throwing porcelain, although never in production. I always formulated my own glazes, but open to options that are less risky and messy as well. thanks again!
  5. I was a potter 40 years ago and changed course. Now in retirement I want to get back into it purely for fun. I did raw glazed earthenware using lead bisilicate glazes. Are there comparable classic lead-like slip ware glaze materials and/or formulas out there today that I could use? Thanks so much!
