Posted 20 Mar 2013I like the following books on glazing for someone just starting the journey.
1) Daniel Rhodes Clay and Glazes for the Potter will help with the intuitive stuff and give you basics.
2) Mastering cone 6 Glazes has some great recipes.
3) Richard Zakins Electric kiln ceramics was my bible for a few years.
4) Robin Hopper's book (s) The Ceramic Spectrum and the subsequent editions are my "go to" books.
5) http://digitalfire.com/index.html has links to pages of information to help you learn after you start and need to troubleshoot.
I've been a collector of ceramic books for about 30 yrs now and I still use these resources on an everyday basis.
Posted 26 Aug 2012I looked at the Bailey ones. I think I will go with the c 10 ones then I should be able to use them at both mid and hi range firings. thanks
Posted 21 Aug 2012I have 2 Advancers and would love to have enough for the whole kiln but since I don't I think plate setters would be a better alternative, I have 20 plates to fire and it is important that at least 12 get into one load for glaze consistency.
Posted 21 Aug 2012I will watch the thread tp see what the people experienced in using plate setters say.
Posted 20 Aug 2012Wedding registries and dinnerware seems to be about all I am doing these days, that and urns. (Wondering what that says about our times?)
Plates range form 30-40 depending on diameter.
Salad or soup bowls 15-20 depending on style
6 in Side plates are 18
Mug is 24.
Cup and saucer is 40.
I am working without plate setters and find this pretty "kiln" consuming, does anyone have recommendations for places that I can purchase good ones for c 10 gas firing?
