hunky guy figure
watercolorkare: nanny, how's your part of the state?

buffy10207: NJ..I have to go
stariedawn: nj what kind of cane did you start with?

norajean_sf: see ya Buffy
buffy10207: e-mail me with what you want me to do with
the pics
mommaclara2001: Bye Buffy
bonsaikathy: by Buffy
norajean_sf: It's a Zebra cane that was "chevron
stariedawn: okay
norajean_sf: any horizontal lines can be cut on the

cane, black and pearl
stariedawn: I see
buffy10207: thanks for the demo

norajean_sf: You're welcome Buffy
buffy10207 has left the conference.

watercolorkare: oh I hope you will be ok Nanny
norajean_sf: so questions?
stariedawn: it is very beautiful
norajean_sf: while my hands are on the keyboard
nefret111: they are wonderful pots!
norajean_sf: and easy too
norajean_sf: not a lot of pinching going on
nefret111: hee
norajean_sf: when you use leaf cane, flower petal cane
norajean_sf: this is the trick to use
norajean_sf: cut flower petals or leaves and connect
them like I did these squares
canastananny: What size shaper
stariedawn: it looks very complicated though
bonsaikathy: that does seem to make pinch pots a bit
norajean_sf: size of clay shaper depends on the job it
norajean_sf: if I'm smoothing the sides of the pot and
the opening is wide then I use a large clay shaper
watercolorkare: how thick did you cut your slices
norajean_sf: If I'm doing finishing work on the lip I
use the smallest
norajean_sf: hmmm, how thick were these?
norajean_sf: I'd say
norajean_sf: hella thin
norajean_sf: LOL
watercolorkare: lol
norajean_sf: Trick to the slices, is make the slices
norajean_sf: not a thick one next to a thin one
norajean_sf: that's more important
canastananny: you are going to make us all guess
norajean_sf: it's more than that Tamara, I don't give
exact measures because (1) I'm lazy
norajean_sf: (2) most folks don't follow directions
nefret111: looks about 1-2 mm to me
watercolorkare: i guess it would depend on how heavy
you want the pot
bonsaikathy: ok, if just making a regular small one
from a block of clay
norajean_sf: (3) you are all independent folks and
need to find your own way
watercolorkare: yea yea
norajean_sf: LOL
norajean_sf: I give you a "general" idea of the
norajean_sf: what you end up doing with the technique
is going to be personal and unique
watercolorkare: well, if you use fat ones you can do
more pinching and make the design bigger
norajean_sf: also
norajean_sf: I hate exact measures, I don't even cook
that way
norajean_sf: yes yes yes
norajean_sf: thick slices give you big pots, or pots
with thick sides
norajean_sf: really thin slices are for when you have
the pinch pot trick mastered
norajean_sf: go big at first
watercolorkare: i only use recipes for a reference,
and go with my instincts  - guess i will apply that to
myladyz has joined the conference.

canastananny: I see my invite worked myladyz
canastananny: cool
norajean_sf: Ok, we're at the top of the hour, so I'm
going to send through the log that has the 8 square
pot part
