New experiment with reduction

July 7th, 2010 by admin

You can’t make an omlet without breaking a few eggs

These pots over grew crystals like crazy.  I either need to reduce the amount of zinc or up the firing temp.

First Firing of The Summer

June 28th, 2010 by admin

Just finished a firing with some new techniques and glazes.  Mixed some  sculpture and under glaze painting with the crystalline glazed porcelain.  The nesting gourd shapes turned out awesome.

Underglaze anyone?

May 6th, 2010 by admin

I have had a few friends ask me how I get the images on my pottery.  They are painted on with underglaze.   Underglaze is a slip-like glaze that fires onto the clay a lot like paint.  It looks great and is stable under glazes like celadon and most cone 10 transparents.  My favorite is a clear glaze developed by Pete Pinnell called Pete’s Clear.   It has been frustrating trying to find a crystalline clear that is compatible with the underglaze.   I have killed several test pots in the search.  Drawing and painting have always been a passion of mine.  Combining drawing and clay is a logical step -and a fun one.
