What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I have a small electric kiln in my home studio. I have always been interested in firing to Cone 6 even when it was not a popular idea and before the internet was around to help us with so much valuable information. I am very happy to have discovered this website and to start experimenting with some of the glazes posted by its members and to share my results.

We haven't heard anything from you in a long while. I hope you are well, and just taking a break from the network. We miss you. Come back!

Here are two of the teapots I made using the SH glazes.  One with the warm palette, the other with the cool.

Jan, Dave & I live on the mid north coast at Stuarts Point (1/2hr north of Kempsey), my sis in law lives on the Central Coast (Bateau Bay), where we originally came from too.  All 3 of us went to the C.C. Potters Society for a term of lessons, bought our own wheels & the addiction continues to this day.

Hi Jan, if hubby & sis in law would like to come to your raku day at Oran Park, do they have to be members of this site also?

Hi Jan,
I did my first firing last week, a mad rush to get some teapots fired prior to a submission deadline for the newer edition of 500 Teapots.  Who knows what the juror will think, but I photographed the two best ones. I glazed them without doing any test tiles prior, and they really turned out nicely.  I used the Steven Hill recipes that he sent to me after I purchased his video..Anyway when I get home I will post the shots so you all can see the results.  I am inspired now to try many more "non Steven Hill" glazes, something he encourages.  Basically any cone 6 glaze sprayed over the Crystal Magic Warm and Cool glazes, and cooled according to the schedule, should produce interesting results.
