Topic: repair for formed lamps
Replies: 3

I've borrowed molds from another studio for bent panel lamps that were just right. These were exactly the right shape for all those Victorian knock-offs including the ones imported from China with the bead fringe around the bottom.

You cannot copyright a broad idea any more than you can copyright a title. For example, it would be difficult to own copyright to slumped bottles. Even creating a table out of slumped bottles would be a stretch. The specific design of the table, how you hold the bottles together if unique, these are...

I use castor oil, vitamin E, and some kind of essential oil like chamomile... just a few drops after washing hands while they're still wet. Works great. Also, there's the age-old beauty trick of slopping whatever on your hands at night, then wearing cotton gloves to bed. Good for the nails, too. Was...

Brian, I agree with you that these boards are invaluable and am astounded that many teachers don't include info about them in their syllabi. In fact, in the college classes, I build in assignments around internet research including searching for information in BB archives to answer certain questions...

And when will you be offering the class, "Kiln-Rebuilding for Women"? LOL. I'm sure there are a few ladies in the group who would be interested in that one, including moi!

Good luck,

I have half-completed a book entitled The Good (arts and crafts) Teacher. This project grew out of my disillusionment with the arts and crafts program at the community college where I taught locally (the university program was even worse). Yikes.
