Posted 22 Apr 2013Any advice on how to control the expansion in this low fire white casting slip?
It is shivering off commercial glazes:
.400 TEXAS TALC
.200 HYDRITE FLAT
.100 MINSPAR 200
.050 VICRON 25-11Any ideas much appreciated !
Posted 22 Apr 2013Anyone have experience with Fireshade underglazes?
Posted 17 Apr 2013Question probably for Neil.
Someone was told by one of the kiln companies not to do a hold for more than 30 minutes at high temperature... that it would destroy elements or some such thing.
Sounds like misinformation to me. I could imagine a long hold being extra work for the relays but does anyone know what the kiln maker might have been talking about?
Posted 18 Mar 2013This is great:
Master potter Shiho Kanzaki making a coil/ pinch and throw tea bowl. What a great lesson this is !
I tried to mimic what he does exactly: funny but somehow mine did not quite come out the same (;
Anyone have one of these massive banding wheels packed away that you might be willing to part with? Want, want want !

Posted 13 Feb 2013Hi,
I have a one of a kind cup with a small hole in the side wall.
It's a kooky artsy yunomi type thing so can't really remake it, I know I should smash it but I love it.
I want to try the trick of filling with gold which I think is called Kintsukuroi.
Does anyone know how to do this?
Can i crumple up gold leaf and pack it in there?
Hoping Baymore San or one of you other masters out there might know.
I could fill with epoxy I guess but I doesn't seem right somehow.
Again, I know I should let go and smash it but I really would like to save it if possible.
