  1. Hi all, pretty new to the world of creating my own glazes - I have found several on glazy.org that I like (although I'm aware that an opensource online forum for glazes can be potentially disastrous). The question that I have is for silicon carbide. The recipe I'm referencing is this https://glazy.org/recipes/20474 which calls for a 1200 mesh SiC. The original recipe - https://glazy.org/recipes/19163 - calls for 1000 mesh SiC. The pottery supplier in my area carries only 400 mesh. What would the difference in appearance be? There's a massive difference in how those two glazes look and I w
  2. Folks, no one has posed a new question in the QotW pool, so once again. . . I'll try to come up with one that will interest. Lately we have had questions on about using commercial materials, and other things so it seemed obvious to ask about where you buy. So. .. . . QotW: How far away is your main supplier for all things Ceramic? I get my clay shipped in from Standard Ceramics to Tyrone, which is 115 miles. I usually order #2k at a time, and when I do I also order glaze materials that I may need. On occasion I do travel to Pittsburgh to visit the store, and shop other places in the
  3. I'm Czech and I'm translating a school syllabus for pottery classes. I need some help. Is there a word in English for: This shape which you get after centering and opening clay ( in Czech: "the basic shape"): additives which make a clay body lighter because they burn out (e.g. peat, starch, sawdust,..) in Czech they are called "lighteners" paints which are used on glaze fired pots and then fired again at 1,200 - 1,300 °C, very resistant on glaze paints. (in Czech something like "melt-in paints") Finally, is there an expression like "outer hand" and "inner hand"
  4. Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations about where to source firebricks around Chicago (I'm willing to travel). I've been keeping an eye on Craigslist but it seems the offerings right now begin and end with landscaping bricks. Peeking around construction sites is yielding pretty much the same results. If I'm not firing Stoneware would those be fine? Are there types of businesses, services people have had luck contacting to source brick? Any help / insight / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I'm beginning a new collaborative project with an Illustrator and to be able to capture the detail of her drawing's I want to use transfers within the work but I'm really struggling to find somewhere that can produce Gold transfers for a good price and without a large minimum order, can anyone help? Thank you
  6. I am inspired to post this as I have walked around a saber saw on a stand in my studio for low these past two years. I did not ask for this saw, nor do I know how to use it. It is good for hanging my parka on.The owner got it out of his house. He left with a good feeling, having rid himself of an uneeded piece of equipment. I have been gifted clay, glaze, a gas kiln, more glaze,un-named white powdery bags of something.These are gifts that keep on giving. What have you been given that you didn't want, didn't ask for, and don't need? Merry Christmas. TJR.
