I saw that too. It was Valoir!
I had never seen the show, she mentioned in this thread she was on it, so the first time I saw it, I saw her.

You were great!

Aww, shucks.  Thanks for noticing me on HGTV. 

And yes, I do teach classes in Minneapolis, and I sometimes go on the road to Wisconsin too.  Feel free to contact me to get on my mailing list.

Can anyone tell me how big the space is in the hot pot kiln?

If you're concerned about the size of the hot pot because you want to make a big/dense piece, you probably need to stick with a kiln.  The hot pot is limited to 30 gr (or something like that) of clay at a time, because it's a relatively short firing time so a larger piece won't get fired all the way.  At least this is what I've read!  I got my starter kit this week, hoping to find some time in my (as ever) overbooked weekend to play with it.

I want to get certified and I am having a big problem - I can't find an Art Clay class in my area. (and I live in Los Angeles!!)

I was looking into taking classes and it turns out OTIS has classes!!

The mold won't hurt or affect the PMC in anyway, so no worries! Smiley

Little experiment...

I tried to include some micro glass beads in a piece and it turned out pretty interesting....

one of these is treated with Liver of sulfer (the one on the right) -
the microbeads were green and came out orange-y yellow from the kiln.
I might try it again and do a better job placing them next time

Nice idea! ...and it's interesting to hear about the beads change in colour. I think I prefer the one without the liver of sulpher, personally.
