    This is a sample of a point twill using 8 shafts on a non-computerized Dobby loom. I studied different weave structures to use in my pottery and metals work: it was fascinating!

    Deep drawing is an indstrial technique used to make many hollow shapes out of sheet metal. Marcia Selsor did a post a while back on the technique using clay where she draped the clay slab over a sheet with a hole in it and combed the material down into the hole. I wanted to try her technique and it works very well. It is much faster than making a mold and there can be many variations using the same form. I had a commission for a wall nook and this was a proof of concept piece for that nook. As it was I used a more traditional method of fully supporting the bowl because of the size of the p

The tiles make up the table top of the wrought iron tables.

  6. Reduction firing is done in the absence of oxygen but has any one tried firing in a muffle furnace using other types of gasses?

Muffle furnaces are often used in heat treating metals and properties in the treated metal are changed by heating the metal in a controlled atmosphere by introducing gasses into the muffle.
