Raw materials are ordered!

After punching numbers and comparing various ceramic suppliers, I have finally placed my order for raw materials.  Let the glazing begin!  I am scheduled to pick up my order tomorrow after work from Portland Pottery!  They are a great source for products, tools, clay, etc.  If you are interested or needing a good supplier yourself check them out here

Organized supply chart for my order

I know I could just use Excel and make a spreadsheet for this, but I am used to working with my hands in my art and tend to do that with things like this as well.  Plus, I like to be able to have a hard copy that I can highlight and mark-up.  So here is what my order chart looks like.  I didn’t order everything on my list (my wallet can only extend so far right now) but I did get a good amount ordered to get started with my glazing.  Here is what I hope to pick up tomorrow (hopeful because I am still waiting to see if there is enough EPK Kaolin – which is a very important ingredient for me):

  • Bat Pins
  • Triple Beam Scale (surprisingly expensive)
  • Ferro Frit 3110
  • Red Iron Oxide
  • Cobalt Carbonate
  • Copper Carbonate
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Rutile
  • Calcined Zinc Oxide
  •  Dolomite
  • Manganese Dioxide 325
  • Silica
  • Kaolin EPK (I really hope this is there – I ordered 50 pounds!)

    How exciting to finally be moving along with this process! I can’t believe in just over a year after graduation how much you’ve accomplished and have been able to purchase to make this dream come true! We are so happy for you! May the Lord bless you as you create!
