Posted 6 Apr 2013Brackers Good Earth Clays in Lawrence, KS! And I've visited New Mexico Clay in Albuquerque, which has a large variety of clays and tools.
Posted 26 Mar 2013Hi,
Maybe I'm the only microbiologist/potter? Bacteria are tiny! (from http://science.howst...opic/cell1.htm) " A typical human cell might be one-tenth of the diameter of your hair (10 microns).... An Escherichia coli bacterium ... is about one-hundredth the size of a human cell (maybe a micron long and one-tenth of a micron wide), so it is invisible without a microscope. " So, like angels on the head of a pin, you can easily have millions of bacteria in a tiny crack in a pot.
Posted 13 Mar 2013I was given a Sueki ring shaped bottle late kofun 6thC ad Japan;I have some ideas on how I would make them them, but I`m curious to know how someone else out there would choose to form them.
I've seen Native American pots in this shape, also--maybe someone could comment. ( http://worldvisitgui...le/MS05216.html, towards the bottom)
Posted 13 Feb 2013I also have carpal tunnel and have never had it fixed, I use soft clay and only buy 500 lbs at a time. One thing I started doing was slam wedging I know there are some videos on YouTube that demonstrate the technique. I still get a bubble now and then, I can usually handle it and if I can,t I just start over, it's better than wedging.
Here it is: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=HApNjUnI9U4

Hi, those are the micaceous clay pots--I saw some in Albuquerque, and they were lovely, with some sparkle from the mica. They can stand up to cooking food on a gas stove! Pretty amazing.
