Avenues Street Fair Tomorrow

September 11th, 2010 by admin

More crystalline mugs for the fair tomorrow.  Crystalline glazed pots are usually incredibly smooth and perfect.  These mugs are far from elegant.  They have some awesome fossil texture.  Wabi Sabi to the max.  Crystals grow around the stamped forms and puddle in the cracks and valleys.  I have so many ideas now and so little time to work not that school has started again.  I will have to burn the midnight oil to get the art made.

These mugs are simply made  textured porcelain slabs folded into cylinders very fun and quick.  I think they turned out great.  Hope top see some of you tomorrow.

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

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.

New pots from the small kiln

May 9th, 2010 by admin

I tried a new crystal glaze formula.  It a cone 6-9 by  Fara Shimbo called bory 1.

I reduced the zinc oxide in t the glaze from 27 down to 25%.  While firing I unexpectedly fell asleep during a 5 hour soak at 2000.  The kiln continued a slow rise in temperature till it reached 2140.  The crystals came out long and spiky.  I like this new look.  I’m going to try it again with a new glaze soon.
