We’ve decided to clean up the mezzanine area in the Research & Education studio, Resource Center Portland. It’s a long overdue project and we really should have taken a true ‘before” photo.
After removing a heap of extra boxes & regrouping like items, it looks something like this.
In case you’re wondering, this is a mixed storage space for video props, teaching samples for certain classes, a testing archive, assorted supplies & MORE.
Here are a few gems from this round of organizing:
Oh, LIGHT BULBS!
Kilncast 1820 Powder, Fine, Medium, Coarse Frit & Billet (L to R).
Kilncast 1818 Powder, Fine, Medium, Coarse Frit & Billet (L to R).
Vintage hot-cast color samples.
Assorted sharp things for making models in a casting workshop.
One of several boxes of color wedge samples. More color samples.
So many, so beautiful!
These wedges, of which we have quite a collection, are created by tinting Clear, Medium Frit (-02), w/ relatively low percentages of colored powder. More on the frit tinting technique here & here.
