Kiln Cart? by Pete Snell
Hi All; Has anyone here ever built a cart to move a kiln around? Space is getting to be at a premium in the shop, and I'd like to be able to move the smaller kiln into an out of the way spot when not in use.

Process color glazes? by Charles P Lamb
I've been looking at mass produced "collector's plates". They seem to use a silk screened application of glazes to produce images in a great variety of colors. I'd always thought it was hard to get the colors exact with glazes. Is it possible to get process color compatible glazes? Charles P....

Harvesting wild clay by mr y
OK, so I'm a newbie, and an urban refugee to boot. Can any of you point me in the direction of websites and/or publications that discuss how to identify and collect clay from the wild? I'm doing fine on store-bought, but I'd like to try to expand my horizons a bit. Thanks Mr Y

Wiring off the wheel,tip. by plodder
Hi all, just joined your group after reading some of your postings. There was some talk about wiring off pots and I thought I could share a tip with you by way of introduction: If, as I do, you slide your pots onto a selection of small wooden boards it can create a'sticky' problem when you later...

How do you get into "the zone"? by Bubbles
Hi again! Okay - frustration has set in, and is not doing me any good. Centering is NOT like riding a bike! After months away from my wheel, centering has me completely bamboozled again. Not being able to center, is throwing me off center, if you know what I mean. The "right" music seems to help....

Funny feel to my clay by Bubbles
Hi again all you lovely people! Was in the workshop again today and had some clay (reclaimed) that had gone too dry and I had rolled thin and sprayed with water, layered and left in plastic to soften up.
