Posts I've Made
Posted 6 Feb 2013I agree save some for your self and save some for future archaeologists. Bury some of the pots some where they will love you for it.
You can always make pavers by embedding big chunks of fired ware into concrete (there are molds you can buy). Sorry if there are errors in this post I am doing this from my phone.
Cool idea to bury a couple, I'm going to do that, but only good ones!

Posted 6 Feb 2013I think a message for amateur potter/beginner should be: if it does not have any potential at the greenware stage, it should be reclaimed. Why fire what already looks ugly?
If it did have some potential but got ruined by glazing, we can reglaze it, right?
On the other hand, mistakes are good! My best vases so far got out of some sort of mistakes I made (wrong move, shaken table).
... I am just learning, though.
So true, that is what I'm doing now, I don't fire anything I'm not completely satisfied with, and luckily those pots are getting to be more and more numerous!!
Posted 6 Feb 2013Get the ball pene hammer and start smashing. Do this when you are alone, as the noise is quite unsettling. Wear a set of goggles and work gloves, as the shards are glass. Lots of people will want to help you by picking out pots and "rescuing them", by taking them home. Don't let any get away. Don't save any sherds for mosaics. Throw them all away in a cardboard box, taped up, and don't look back. You will feel great.
I have smashed a lot of stuff in my time. Didn't keep any to hang around and remind me of my bad decisions.
That's how I'm leaning, thanks TJR for the nudge!
