December 29, 2006, Newsletter Issue #222: Types of test tiles: Thrown hollow cylinder

Tip of the Week

Throw a wide cylinder without a bottom about two or three inches tall and put two or three grooves in it. When itīs leather hard, cut it like a pie, in four, eight etc pieces depending on how wide I want it to be and to make identical tiles. Each "slice" stands by itself and can be easily dipped in different ways at different angles to show different thickness of the glaze.
