How much clay are you starting with?
2.5 #s. when wet they're about 9" wide or just a little more.
Dude, I was glazing to Number of the Beast this morning! Iron Maiden rules supreme!
Inspirational. Thanks for the demo.
i'm not as hardcore as you kent...my iron maiden days have long since past. i'm a soft acoustic man now.
Acoustic Iron Maiden?
I think you must be having a ball with that wonderful new wheel! Cheers!I want to ask you a question about my 'sprung apart' handle. I checked on the replacement handle just now. It is still one piece. But it is not as nice--it is thicker. So is that why it broke--too thin?Gay
Brandon, I use BlackJack clay from East Texas. Are you familliar with that clay? It is a ^6 - ^10. Which means it is not quite vitrified at ^6..but that is what I use. I like working with that clay and I have an emotional connection to it!! I should accept your challenge of doing dozens of handles--I'll give it a try! Gosh, there is so much to test, test, test!
