repair help for Mdina fused piece

Hi all, I apologize in advance for requesting cold help on the kilnworking board, but I didn't know where else to turn. I have been asked to repair a 20" Mdina glass platter from Malta which was dropped, broken into lots of pieces--some big, some shards--and then mostly glued back together with a gl...

I wasn’t going to reply to this post or participate in the activity at this time because I didn’t feel I had the creative time and energy right now to focus on it. And then I realized that I did need to post because I was forced to do this exercise two years ago and it completely changed/opened ...

A lot of my molds came from a potter I was in an artist's co-op with in the late 80's. He made them in a rough red clay--definitely not porcelain... maybe terracotta or stoneware?--and didn't fire them all the way because he said the porosity would work better for multiple glass firings. *Shrug* I a...

The blue on Cailleach's Cradle is freeform kiln cast branches which are then fused onto a fused plate--I do the casting of the branches and the fusing of the blanks for the plate in the same firing. The second fuse is just over tack. Then it is control slumped (not fully slumped) into a ceramic mold...

Re: first time using ceramic molds

prefire to ?? do you sand off when needed or can you actually rinse of kiln wash with water? 500 degrees, 10 minutes I hand rub/sand very lightly. I have never removed all the old wash from my molds and have been firing in some of them for 17 years with no probs. Usually I just slap a new coat on i...

I bought a new Skutt clamshell in Januaray and the first three times I fused in it I had honking bubbles--four 8" square plates each time and 1-1/2" - 2" bubbles in each one. Major disappointment. So I changed my firing schedule. I now fire everything 400-600 /hr 0 - 1250. Then I hold at 1250 for 45...

Putting it out there...

Haven't ever put work up for other artists' critique/comments. Heck, barely have a website! But thought I'd give it a go. Be gentle please...

I have a WBS that I have never successfully used and from what I read here, the problem is definitely with me and not with the machine. :? So I, too, need to find a coldworking class, but I am in Atlanta. Anyone know of any resources down my way? Thanks...
