What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
Firing cone 6 electric for porcelain beads pendants and other ceramic forms over the last 6 years or so. Toured the bead circuit in California, Arizona and Wisconsin and sold for a while at the Olympia Farmers Market.My partner and managed to get a nice following and our work published several times in a variety of Beading Magazines. Currently the OffCenter Productions website is still focused on beads and not really indicative of what direction my pottery has taken. Since I am now working full time in IT its really slowed down my ability to produce pots or glazes. I am more in the mode of learning, experimenting and finding my way in cone 6 electric.

I am interested in discussions on firing and glazing in cone 6 electric and very interested in glaze data base software. I bought the glaze calc software from Ron and Roy. Wish now I had bought their book as its now out of print. Honestly the prices for getting one is just outrageous now.
Most of my experience is reduction firing at cone 10, soda and raku so cone 6 oxygen is a fairly new adventure for me.
