Posted 1 May 2013Sorry I've been away for a while and not answering any questions or doing much in the way of moderation on the forums.
It has been a very tough week. On Saturday morning 4/27/13 at 12:30 AM, my father, John Robert Baymore Jr., passed away after a week long battle after having emergency major abdominal surgery on Monday evening 4/22. He was 94. My wife and I were with him all week, and in his very last moments.
He was a World War II verteran, serving as a Staff Sargent and Military Police officer in the 1st Army Dvision. He was in the Normandy Invasion, and once found himself alone behind enemy lines on a motorcycle during the Battle of the Bulge. A musician, he was the director of the 1st Army Band while in Europe. He worked for himself as an interior decorator, specializing in fine wallcoverings and detailed painting work. An amazing golfer since his 40's, up until shortly before his death, he was still able to shoot his age.
Visitation and funeral services will be at 10 AM at the Tuttle Funeral Home on Route 10 W in Randolph, NJ on Tuesday 4/30/13. Donations in lieu of flowers can go to Wounded Warrior Project PO Box 758517 Topeka, KS 66675 http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/
I'll be back involved more soon.
Posted 13 Jan 2013Why do manufacturers make clays that fire to Cone 5 when most potters who make their own glazes fire to cone 6!????
Posted 7 Nov 2012Paint on Elmer's type glue and let it dry, spray starch and my favorite is hair spray cuz it dries quickly and works beautifully if you spray.
Posted 25 Oct 2012I have a few...my absolute all time favorite is a long nail that's sharpened into a beveled edge that a visiting German potter gave me. Then, my Cynthia Bringle clay pick. One of my students borrowed it and I was jonesing until she remembered to bring it back. Oh, and a triangle shaped ribbon trimming tool; the best WAS my custom made Bison (which broke when dropped as promised) that I hope to replace soon.
Love to see a pic of your nail and pic.............
Posted 20 Sep 2012I've used B-Mix 5 and it cracks reliably. B-Mix 5 with grog is fine.
