Figural Raku Sculpture Combined

Figural Raku Sculpture Combined
The sculpture turned out well overall. A couple pf the glazes didn't reduce as much as I would have like, so the color is a bit off in spots. However, nothing broke, or even cracked during either firing....Must have been the expertise of the artist...

Zen practice/6/18/14.
I ve been away from wheel for a few weeks. Struggled with a few bowls a few days ago. I needed to go back and "practice". The first five were a struggle, some were a fight. I struggled with centering, I crashed a few on purpose, I crashed a few due to bad technique. Cylinders 6 - 17 found the zone they .........flowed.....they just. Happened!!

ok before your say craft or more "duckies and chickens" let me tell you about this.
Started as an exersize in clay shrinkage and designing to fit.
As we know, clays have different shrinkage numbers and temp certainly has an effect on that shrinkage.
The experiment started with just going by the shinkage numbers given with the clay body. I soon discovered that there is some deviation to that number (they should give the average shrinkage and an observed deviation). But I digress.
I liked the way they looked and they were different. So......
I measure the appropriate dimensions on the found glass objects, interesting things from thrift stores. I then throw a base and a lid, based on the glass dimension, plus the published shrinkage, plus a fudge factor that you have to determine with the clay you are using.
I bisque, the glaze, fire to cone 5 (stoneware). Usually now, I get a pretty good fit. Sometime the lid is a little big or small though. if I like the way the lid looks, I'll grind or add cork or foam filler.
I found that folk like and actually buy these. If you want more info, shoot me an emai.

This pot was bisque fired, soaked in milk, then heated to achieve the desired color. It is watertight.

Picnic Party Time Drink Carrier and Tumblers

Picnic Party Time Drink Carrier and Tumblers
The drink carrier and tumbler set is made with Little loafers cone 6 clay. I slab built the carrier and extruded the handle and tumblers. The entire piece was painted with Amaco White Underglaze. The design is a rubber stamp I rolled into the surface to give it a dimensional texture and then I painted it with Amaco Dark Blue underglaze. The piece is glazed in Amaco Zince Free Clear and the bottom of each inside section is glazed in Coyote Cobalt blue.

Each glass has a different design to it so at a party everybody will know which glass is theirs.
