Default [IBC] Ceramic Pots 1a

Good Day to all,
Lynn,

thanks for the e-mail,but I fear I have just made
it worse.I have already received 1 e-mail
asking for clarification in some areas,and 1 from
someone who does science,with a tighter use
of a word.

I was afraid this would happen.

So as my final,final word on the subject.Could I
suggest everyone visit a pottery and have a chat.

Your hands?
Still able to paint and plant I hope?

Lastly,as you may not have realised,I build by coils
on a Amaco no.5,banding wheel,using my fingers at the
base of the wheel to rapidly turn the object on the wheel
head.
With a small serrated knife to obliterate the coils.
I never really learned to throw as I found this technique
[I read about the Mayans doing this] to be very satisfying.

I have a few mame' in pots I made like this.I call them
15 minute pots.7 minutes to build. 3 minutes to dry in
the test kiln and 5 minutes to fire to 980 deg.c orton small
cone 08,all in one go.
It's the fact that the mix is very low clay and able to dry
rapidly that allows me to do this.They are also vitreous.
Until later,
Always a joy to hear from you.

Khaimraj,

Thanks for this effort - it is helpful as text to grasp
the picture for newcomers curious and inexperienced with the
"pot" appreciation part of bonsai/penjing.

I'm glad to hear you stay at it. I still spend a lot of time
with potter friends and don't miss a firing, but as for the
clay throwing my hands took me out of that except for the
occasional small raku. It is great that we have some very
fine potters in IBC.
