Crystaline glaze "problem?" by larry_kruzan
Hi All, I just did my first crystalline glaze firing (glaze formula and firing schedule below) and for the most part I am very happy with the results I got. The one problem is that the glaze that settled into the bottoms of the bowels is not smooth or glossy like the sides. In fact it almost...

Lids? by GaSeku
I would like to throw some pieces that have lids and have a few questions. I think it would be best to dry the two together, but how would you keep them from adhering to one another? Also, when firing, if I wax the bottom of the lid, would that be all I need to do to keep it from sticking to the...

Sort of beginner by Stelios Zacharias
Dear all, I was fortunate enough to have been at a school in the UK with an active ceramics teacher, some wheels and two kilns, and got bitten by the bug. Unfortunately, everything was a little too pre-chewed, meaning that I never had to collect and prepare clay and oxides or mix my own...

Where can I sell a pugmill?? by Graham Stoneman
Hi, I'll stress to begin with that I'm not expert in pottery, but my old man has a pugmill, in full working order. I believe it compacts all the spare left over bits of clay and makes then usable again (is that right?). It used to be used by classes of about 20 people so I think it's a fairly...

Glaze retouching by Suzan
I did a similar thing once...glazed a teapot and held on to the teapot's handle while glazing the body. The teapot was glazed with a sandstone colour. When fired to cone 06, the handle came out pinkish. All I did was reglaze the handle and refire to cone 05; it came out perfect. The glaze goes on...

Bisque firing temp? by GaSeku
Is there a general rule about what temp (cone) to fire to the bisque stage? For example, is it usually one cone under what you would use for glaze? I have some clay that is Cone 5 and it seems I read that you fire at a lower cone for bisque than when you glaze. Thanks for answering all my ultra...

Horse hair by J.R.Lawson
I was just in North Carolina and came across some "horse hair" pots. They were in white, blue and green with black veins. My question is, how were these done and what does horse hair have to do with it?

All dried up... by Stelios Zacharias
Dear all, It is the height of summer here in Athens. I am the newbie who posted a few days ago with firing questions. I have my clay in big plastic bins, but it has (after about a month) got too dry to manipulate easily. Is there a short cut to getting the clay useable again, or should I get it...
