Posted 7 Mar 2013Hi Bette,
Not sure about California but should something happen, would your insurance company cover your loses if you were not there? I think it could be an expensive gamble.
Posted 3 Mar 2013Hi there,
Plainsman F-95 fires to a nice natural looking yellow. I'm not sure if its' still available. Some of our guild members had trouble with the pieces leaking even after being glazed inside and out but I've only used it for decorative wear and love the bare finish with some glaze accents.
Posted 2 Mar 2013Congrats on the new studio along with that exciting first firing. And thanks for taking the time to make this great video....
Posted 7 Feb 2013My studio construction is lagging far behind schedule, and I'm now finding myself over-planning and re-thinking the innards while I wait for walls.
I had it all planned out, the flow of clay from wet to wheel to dry to glaze to kiln ... Then I started looking at old CM, SP, PMI, CT magazines ... and it appears I'm the only fool who sits at a wheel with my back to the wall. If I went this route, I'd be making a fair amount of changes in the layout (which would be easy, as it's empty now).
But about that wheel: Is it all a matter of having solid shelving surrounding you on three sides? Is that why so many potters face the wall? There's something about this positioning that feels uneasy to me. But obviously there's a reason for it. Please do enlighten me.
You should never have your wheel facing a wall. That's just asking for someone to sneak in and shoot you in the head.
Oh, I always wondered what the mirror was for..........................
Posted 6 Feb 2013My first posting here! As a somewhat new potter, I find my skill level improving steadily over time, but in order to have gotten here, I've made a lot of very substandard pots that I want to get out of my life permanently, but feel bad just throwing them into the landfill, and certainly don't want to sell. Does anyone have any creative ideas for using ugly pots? I've thought maybe breaking them up into shards and doing some kind of mosaic, but I could probably cover my whole driveway with what I've got on hand, and I'd so much rather be throwing than doing mosaics!
Love the idea.
I'm now hammering the pieces. It's quick and can't be taken back. That way I can keep and display ones that I'm proud of and enjoy looking at....
Visitors are not distracted by them either so it's a win, win situation.
