  4. I'm wanting to get input on naming my paint-it-yourself pottery business. Giving a name, or list of names, is all I'm asking. I don't want commentary on what products to use or items to carry in the studio. No politics. I'm just hoping to get creativity going. I live in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City. Also Armour Hills. My name is Sadie and my daughter thought of Sadie's Ceramics, which I don't like.
  5. Hi there! After receiving some truly valuable information from a knowledgeable community member on here, I've decided to give up on my old kiln and invest in a new one. Since then I've begun researching which kiln might be right for me. I am planning on only firing low fire, cone 06 clay, and glaze of the same cone temperature. I would love a kiln that might double as a jewelry making kiln so that I may create some pieces out of metal clay as well. I came across the Evenheat Kingpin 88 on a ceramics website, and at first glance, thought it might be perfect. However, everywhere that sells it mentions that its great for jewelry making, glass etc. but nothing about ceramics. I'm not sure if it's because most people would get a kiln with a higher maximum temp to do so, or if there is another reason. Hoping someone out there knows if this kiln could be used for ceramics as well! Thanks so much in advance!!! -April
  6. Hello all, Looking for firing schedules. I have a small manual electric kiln with a kiln sitter and wondering if anyone has a simple, clear firing schedule they follow and could share? I am a beginner trying to learn how to fire for Cone 04 Bisque and then another schedule for Cone 6 Glaze Fire. I am using buff stoneware. Any firing tips appreciated! Thanks so much, Natalie

  8. Hello everyone, I am writing this post due to hope of meeting with someone who may help me to build a downdraft gas fired kiln. I have the book of Frederick Olsen's Kiln Book and in my opinion it has enough information to design a kiln but it may take a lot of time when I start doing that. I only start making ceramics and will be very appreciated ıf I can find someone to give me a hand.. That's why I just want to ask people on here and maybe somebody would like to share a kiln plan (preferentially 1m3) which had been tested before. Thank you in advance!
  9. Good Morning: I want to try the bubble glazing with my high school students. I used the google machine to try and find a good recipe but everyone has something different. I tried a couple and every none of them worked amazingly well. I found the soapy liquid tends to run down the side of the pot and only leave a few bubbled spots. I tried using less water, that worked a little bit better. I also found I had to get the bubbles started and scrap the first layer off because these bubbles were to small. Does anyone have a recipe that they have had good success with and do you have any tips for success. I have watched every video on youtube so I am looking for additional information. I have attached my experiments below. Thank you.

  11. Hello all, I am a very new potter, I have currently only made one piece but I'm very interested in mixed materials ceramics and metal/wood for bowls and cups, I was wondering if it was possible to turn per fired ceramics on something like a wood lathe at very slow speeds? I was hoping someone on here migh of experimented with this workflow and be able/willing to share their experinces? My thoughts currently are as follows: Throw the clay body, wait for it to dry to possibly just a little beyond leather dry, then turning to slightly larger than the required diameter on lathe, allowing for shrinkage in the firing. Looking forward to sharing my adventures with all of you. Ben Crowe
  12. Hi, so I am new at this and asking for help. I had fired my clay, and painted it (with regular paint, ceramics friendly) and then put a glaze over top. The glaze said it could be used over paint and that it should be clear after firing. After firing the glazed pieces, it seems that the paint has been stripped off and the glaze never went clear. Did I do something wrong? My kiln is a cone 8, bought barely used. I followed the instructions on the side and the internet: Cook on low for 1 hr., medium for 2 hrs., and (after looking it up) another hour on low. Also, is there any way I can fix the pieces? They were gifts and took me a while to make them, but I know they're likely ruined. I appreciate any advice and help.

  14. Hello! My name is Rebekah and I'm currently working on a wonderful project that cover's the 'Arts and Crafts Movement' from the late 19th - early 20th century for BBC. At present we're looking to source an authentic Victorian kick wheel from this time period or ideally an original kick wheel to feature in our Arts doc. I am an artist myself however I thought it wiser to approach my fellow creatives in the ceramic community with this hoping that somebody out there is able to advise on the best way to approach the search. Any help would be greatly appreciated, my contact details are as follows: Production company : Lion TV E: rebekah.finnigan@liontv.co.uk T: 0141 331 4996 Best, Rebekah

  16. I am brand new to sculpting and I need to get a few more pieces in my portfolio to get accepted into an art program. I decided to begin using ceramics and earth clay instead of oven-bake polymer clay and I really need help on how to keep my clay from cracking around my armature. I don't know what materials are safe in a kiln and what materials will make my clay explode. I sculpted a hand with a wire armature and as it was drying it started to crack. I looked it up and found out that I need to have room for shrinkage and ways to help is to wrap newspaper around the wire. Is it safe to put newspaper and wire in a piece and have it not explode and crack? How am I supposed to control the drying environment so that my clay doesn't crack? And I’m also trying to sculpt a skull and I was wondering if it would be easier to hollow it out than to make an armature. Any tips and tricks wanted!!! Thanks!! Mikelle
  17. Handbuilding Laboratory There are two distinct stages to acquiring technique: The first is to learn it, the second is to forget it. We will review of the basics of hand built ceramics then blur the lines. Emphasis will be placed on gaining a deeper understanding of the clay itself, establishing a paradigm of creative problem solving and developing a personal set of integrated methods that accomplishes our artistic goals. ALL LEVELS Session runs August 1 – 5, 2018 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily, open studio hours on select days. $470 tuition + $35 registration fee Artist Bio: ERIC KNOCHE creates work that is an exploration of the underlying cadences and postulates of his own life and the layers of culture that surround him. The objects he creates are distillations of fundamental movements of energy into static three dimensional forms. When he makes work, he often feels as though he is excavating his own subconscious. He has been strongly influenced by languages he doesn’t understand and tools he doesn’t know how to use, male and female figures, machine parts, shelters, math equations, micro-facial movements, the argentine tango, alphabets, the spine and other bones, the distortional nature of memory, the limits of ocular perception, plants, running water, and songbirds. www.ericknoche.com $505
  18. Hello, Everyone. I'm looking for a week-long (approx) ceramic workshop someplace warm in March, April or May 2018. Anywhere! Thank you in advance for your suggestions. These are the kinds of things that I enjoy making, but I'd be happy to experiment with something new.
  19. It has been a long time since I have done anything with molds as I am mainly a wheel thrower. I have a plaster fruit bowl mold (hump mold over a year old but have never used it before until now) and my clay won't release from it and I'm scared that if I don't take it off soon that it will crack (its been on the mold for almost a full day uncovered). I can't get it off, what should I do? And how do you keep your clay from sticking to your plaster molds?
