  1. Hello! I'm gearing up to clean out my studio tomorrow and I'm curious, where does everyone else store their finished pottery before it sells? I have mine in tubs lined with large bubble wrap, foam pieces and towels that I keep beneath shelves that stay open and clear for new pots that need trimming and glazing. Has anyone figured out a more genius approach to storing finished product and a lot of it? Thanks, Whitney
  2. I have a question that I hope someone will be able to answer. As a newbie in the world of "ceramic molds" I came across some cartoon characters ceramic molds such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Pinnochio to name a few. Although I'm not ready to learn how to use them yet, what is the best way to store them. I should mentioned that the molds I have have two pieces. I have read conflicting information that the molds should be stored upright with the pouring hold faced down to laying the ceramic mold flat (on the flat side of the mold) with the seam line (I'm assuming this is where each side of the mold meets) should be parallel and not stored this way. Thank you in advance.
  3. Hi All, I have done weekly pottery classes at a local centre for a few years and am now thinking of trying to create my own pottery studio at home, having moved to a bigger house. I don't have a basement or garage, but there is a large glass and metal greenhouse at the end of the garden. The greenhouse is good quality, has electric hook up, and a cement foundation and floor. There are ceiling vents that open and close and a main door and lower vents on the other end wall. I've googled it and think this might work as a place to have a studio and fire the kiln (obviously I wouldn't sit in there when the kiln is on!) but wanted to check if anyone has done this before or knows of it working well? I'm slightly concerned about enough ventilation and the greenhouse possibly getting very hot when firing......?? There's also the possibility of maybe squeezing the kiln next to the greenhouse on the edge of the concrete base and building a shelter around it, but I live in Somerset in the UK and we have a wet humid climate so not sure that's the best idea..... Thanks Emma
  4. Hello All I have spent the past several months reviewing various Cone 6 recipes (too many books and websites) so as to enter into making my own glazes. I reduced my list to a specific few, calculated my initial needs, and just came home with several bags of chemicals. I realize how important storage is, and now find myself ignorant as to where to get reliable containers for the various oxides, fluxes, etc.. Can anyone offer any insight as to the best places to buy various chemical containers? I have found a few sites on the internet, but would prefer to use sources that are proven reliable. Thank you for any and all insight on this subject. Thank you. Tony
  5. I love casters and vertical storage! Recently when cruising samsclub.com, they had the perfect combo of both. Pegboard was arranged in a teepee fashion on top of a dolly. Theirs was horrendously expensive since it was poly pegboard and an aluminum frame but the same could be accomplished with a sheet of 4x8 hardboard pegboard cut in half, some 1x2's, a scrap of plywood for a shelf/support for the casters and 4 casters. And as an alternative rather than pegboard with individual hooks you can use plain plywood (use 3/4" and you probably don't need the 1x2's) with wire shelf grid (or even wire fencing) installed on 1 inch standoffs. The standoffs allow you to insert your tools into the grid. This is perfect for me to wheel next to where I'm working then push back out of the way. 32 sqft of tool storage, easily accessible.
  6. Is it okay to throw scraps into a bucket of water until there is enough to re-wedge? Or is it necessary to let it completely dry out before adding water? Will it cause bacteria growth if clay is kept in water? Thanks.
  7. I used to stack shelves where ever I could find a place to put them-which seemed to always be in the way in the shop. Being a small room, I just could never find a place out of the way to store them. I decided last year enough moving them around-I built a cart out of scrap materials from a deck build and added heavy wheels to the base. It works well in my situation as I can push it into a corner or some other area and have it out of the way, yet have it handy when I need to load or unload the kiln. It is also easy to get it to the work area for kiln washing or scraping. How do you store your shelves?
