Cleaning the bottom of hundreds of cups...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - 

What is the best way to clean the glaze off the feet of hundreds of cups before firing?  I currently wax, then sponge but it’s getting a bit tedious!  Any clever solutions? Trays of flowing water? 

thanks,

Mark

Maybe your wax isn't all that it could be, shouldn't be much to clean up. What wax are you using?

Power sponger? 

Can you elaborate?

I bought a power rotating   powersponge to clean slip seams and glaze bottoms  years ago. The maker has since died. The thing sits over a 5 gallon bucket and spins slowly . Its a 10 inch or so wide sponge that picks up clean water and flushes off the slip or glaze on sponge as it rotates. Its a simple tool that I use when doing say my wall fish and needs smooth glaze edge. I use it very little as a hand sponge is pretty fast.
