  1. Hello, I became a member today, because I'm looking for some info. A couple days ago, I bought some second-hand plates under the brand "Faria & Bento". After a thorough search on Google, I just gathered the following info: The plates are handcrafted and made in a small historical village in Portugal. There are no contact info with the ceramics workshop, so I can't retrieve anything further regarding the plates. Also, the search results are pointing to auctions or eBay sellers. I would be grateful if anyone could give me more info on the brand, the historical background of it, eve
  2. Hello All! I wonder if someone here has the knowledge to solve a very annoying problem I have been facing lately: I create Porcelain plates, about 9" in diameter. The wight of each plate after glaze firing is about 200 to 250 grams which makes them pretty thin. When bisque firing them, all is well - Always.

Is there any way to support the plate even though it's glazed? I know for low fire we can use metallic stilts but I wonder if they would wrap at such high temperatures. A
  4. New to dipping plates. Plates are 10"+. Picture on upper side which is waxed. Trying to dip in one color that should be a uniform color (no runs or streaks). Tried make a frame for plate to sit in to be dipped but no way to pour out glaze from top of plate. Not enough glaze to use tongs and the plate vertical. Tried using fingers but glaze is smudgy and irregular where I touched it. Please tell me how it should be done.
