I would like to know what others recommend for their choice in a pyrometer and why. I don't have one yet and there seems to be a lot of options with little information.Continue

Injoyed your slide show. Your craftmanship is impeccable and shines through in every medium you work with. In my opinion, cone 10 reduction is  the gold standard that cone 6 electric work is striving to duplicate. I am assuming that these cups are cone 6. The glazes are magnificant. If they are cone 10 then they magnificant still. I like doing both and have yet to inprove my glazing knowledge enough to get this result at cone 6. thanks

Hi Troy,
I've spent a lot of time in Three Rivers. My wife's parents had a place on Fisher Lake up until about a month ago (They moved into a retirement community in Jackson). Your story of coming back to pottery after a long hiatus sounds pretty familiar.
Our more active members are quite open with their techniques and information. Others are a bit more . . . retentive? . . . elusive? . . . totally noncommunicative?
Welcome to our community. Find some friends. Be a friend.
