Hello everyone, Lately I've been keen on getting started on pottery. I guess the creative aspect of it is what attracted me to the concept in the first place, and that I can practically turn it into any piece of art I wish! I haven't begun any practical experience or even laid my hands on clay as of yet, just reading and watching beginner videos every now and then. I do have a local pottery-making studio that offers packaged sessions and they are quite pricy. I'm wondering about turning it into a hobby and I hope I end up liking it when I try it. I am also glad to find this forum that gathers a community of pottery makers, I could learn a thing or two and discover some advice. Do you guys have any tips and insights, or stories on how you got started? Is it a difficult hobby to master? What's required of anyone getting into the pottery business? What are the best steps to take when you want to begin and continue along the right path? And in your opinion, whats the best clay to use and technique when designing? Thanks! Looking forward to your helpful comments.
I need to glaze fire a pile of plates. Problem is, only one plate fist per kiln shelf so I end up having more shelves (in weight) than plates. Is there a better way to do it because this feels like a such a waste.
