  1. I'm in need of stilts to suspend the interior of dome-shaped sculptures up to 4cm (so the rim/base doesn't touch the shelf surface). I've looked into heavy gauge nichrome wires, but I'm not sure if they'd be able to stand still during the high firing process, plus they are pretty difficult to cut. So I wonder if metal nails could be used as stilts. For example, the pointy part touches the sculptures, and the cap sticks into a flat body of clay, i.e., the base of the stilt. If so, what kind of nails can sustain in cone 10 firing? Thanks!

  7. Im new to ceramics so sorry if I seem ignorant. If I were to make a solid sculpture, 2-6 inches thick, would I be able to get away without firing it? (I don’t have a kiln in my area) My idea is that I’d let it dry and then just paint it as it is. But would it be too fragile? Are there any adhesives or sprays I could use on it to keep it from breaking and make it stronger? It wouldn’t be moved around much. I'm using earthenware btw.
  8. Hello! So, I'm planning on making two gargoyles to protect my home. Sadly, my kiln is a tired old man and only likes to fire in earthenware. Anyone here have experience with this? I was thinking a heavily grogged terracotta that is fired to ^03 might be my best option, but I'm not sure. The statues will not be glazed, as South Dakota winters are lethal to glazed ware!!
  9. Hello, I wanted to make some large ceramic sculptures, but I will need to cut them because they will not fit in my kiln. Does anyone know how I could conceal cut marks on the sculpture on glazed areas? Thanks, Callum

  14. Hello everyone, I am completely new in this field, my work so far has focused on plaster modeling. But soon I would like to start a new project, which requires a lot of knowledge in clay processing. I would like to make two fireplace surrounds (designed in the style of the attached plan), one for a decorative fireplace and one for a real fireplace which already has a cast iron insert whit a brick mantle. I would like to know for the first one, for the decorative one, I need to burn the tiles or not. It's about some large parts, for example 2 corbels 80x20 cm. Also I would lik

  17. Hello everyone I created recently this almost 2 meters large ceramic sculpture. Since the form consists from many smaller pieces I was able to create this large size format but I would like to keep working on big size figures and I don't want every one of them to be chopped. If possible I would like to avoid making molds, simply sculpt and put it directly to kiln. So I was wandering if you can give me some advises on what type of armature I can use that can go into kiln and how to create this armature in order to follow shrinking while drying or baking? Thank you so much in advan

  21. I have a fully fired sculpture of a body. I need to attach the upper torso to the lower body. Each piece is about 2.5 feet high. The pieces fit together well and with balance. Thought I could use cement and clay but was told that it would not really work. Then there is extra strength epoxy. Any knowledge of suggestions would be appreciated.
