Glaze Book for Dummies? by GaSeku
Is there something similar to a Glaze Book for Dummies? I am not able to find a class that specifically addresses glazes and very much want to learn more about making them. I am curious about underglazing right now but know precious little about the how- to aspect. And Mason stains? What are they...

Looking for Information by Shadus
Hello! I'm looking to pick up a hobby that I can do with my hands and that is artistic, after a few days of reading, thought, and pondering my interest level, I narrowed it down to pottery and blacksmithing. Strangely, regardless of how artistic the end product is, I really don't think...

Flameware claybody by Deborah M Riel
Has anyone worked with flameware claybody? I just started a class in this last night, and I'm pretty excited about it. Any hints for best handling this clay? It seems to be softer, stickier, and at the same time grittier than the stoneware I'm used to. I found it difficult to pick up my pots...

Slow vs Fast by Doug Porter
I have an Olympic 2827 with Controller. The controller has 4 preprogrammed firing schedules---slow/fast bisque, slow/fast glaze. I've done my own programming for the bisque firing (mainly on the slow side) but was wondering what the difference is in the glaze firing. Why would one choose fast over...

Are any of these too old to use? by GaSeku
I bought a used kiln that came with the following. There was an old receipt included among all the goodies so I know there materials are from 1996. Some are in bags and some are in jars. My question is, are they good or should I replace any of them before trying my hand at making my own glazes?...

Electric kiln switches by wayneinkeywest
Does anyone know if it is possible to replace three position switches in an electric kiln with the infinitely variable type? Seems it would make ramping and soaking a bit easier. (No, I haven't called my kiln mfgr yet. Trying for some background info here first.) TIA, Wayne in Key West

cracked bottoms by sandi
Hi All, Does anyone know why the bottoms of some of my bowls get S cracks on them? I make them all the same but maybe one out of ten will get that crack. I compress the inside bottom while throwing and when trimming the bottom. It seems to happen after they are all finished while they are...

Firing Tmes by David Coggins
Hi Pete, There are about as many firing cycles as there are glaze recipes. There is no definitive answer, but have a look at my website www.users.bigpond.com/dcoggins for a few pointers. Bisque temps for pottery are specified by the clay suppliers, usually at least 1000C but not too high, as the...

Reglazing by sandi
I reglazed a few pots once. There is a product called APT II, and when a few drops are mixed with your glaze, it thickens the glaze enough so that it sticks on your pot. It takes a lot longer for the glaze to dry on the pot and a few of the pots turned out ok but I wasn't thrilled with the...
