As a ceramic artist with my first solo studio I am in need of a few pieces of key equipment "Air" (a vent for my kiln) and "Rollers" (a slab roller).
I am in the final phase of setting up my own independent ceramic studio. I have been developing my product lines for 2 years and took the leap of faith and "quit my day job" in January. I have a brand new studio space and everything I need to get started, but lack 2 pretty essential pieces of equipment to make things operate smoothly.
AIR - refers to a vent for my kiln. I already have the biggy...the kiln, but it needs to be vented so that I can work in the studio when it is on. I fire to about 2000 degrees and that can make a 350 sq. ft space a bit toasty and not so healthy when the chemicals are burning out of the clay. The vent pulls both the heat and gasses outside, similar to your stove exhaust.
ROLLERS - refers to a piece of equipment called a "Slab Roller". Think old fashioned wringer washer on steroids. My primary working method is using slabs of clay to make tiles, boxes, plates and lots of other interesting goodies. A slab roller is an essential tool to create slabs of clay that are of uniform thickness.
With the your help I hope to purchase these two pieces of equipment to make my studio operate smoother and increase my production turn around time.
