Posts I've Made
Posted 17 May 2013"by the way, the scott creek extruder is better in all respects than a square one (in my opinion, of course) because it is round. that makes it clean better, makes it easier to pull the handle down and it holds a decent amount of clay. someone will have to prove to me that a square one takes less effort. think about sliding clay along 2 vertical sides of four sharp corners. then think about the round one".
I have been experimenting with making an extruded from clay. I have done two and they both work. I made the plunger out of quick setting cement. You can use wood too... The other one is round and in the kiln. This one is hand built quickly nothing fancy for my handles. I think I will make two more.
I made a die that inserts. It will be for coils or handles. I just put a little piece of wood to get the shape I want.
See the bottom of the image. I will make one more die that will allow me to make a tube. Inside the extruded I have two little indents where a solid die goes. Then I will make a another die to fit in the extruded slot for the rest of the hollow extrusion. When it is complete I will post it . I am in the process of installing a new kiln.

Posted 26 Dec 2012Going to buy ceramic canvas with gift certificate. Maybe some glazes too....
Posted 28 Nov 2012Thank You
I am doing a series of drawing just using slip, underglaze and clear glaze right now.
I finally found it on the Dick Blick site. Wow, it took me two hours. Here is the link. Has anyone used them?
I ordered and have received a case of the small ones, 6x6. They are just what they look like, nice and flat. I'm looking forward to making some creative wall hangings with them and maybe teaching a class. They are low fire. I'm a huge fan of Mayco products as all of it is very reliable and well tested. Let me know if you have any questions...
I plan on doing some Majolica stamping with the Mayco stamps and Stroke & Coat on them and then use their new product, SG-501 Sculpting Medium with a stencil on top to create a modern kind of look.
Posted 28 Nov 2012Some nice work ...
These are nice.
