    Mark, What do you mean when you say they had legs?

    Glaze Warping Pots

    To be honest I'm not sure since this was several months ago. I will mention that the bowls were of reasonable thickness- a thickness that would have faired fine I'm certain using other glazes in our community studio (I.e. Not my own studio, I'm not firing the kiln). Also, our studio manager put some on a just half of a cup, and you could see just that part being squeezed when it came out of the kiln

    Glaze Warping Pots

    You're right of course. The extent of what I know is: Glazing inside and out and firing to cone 10 in strong reduction in a gas kiln. Stoneware is a medium grogged ironous body with approx 15% shrknkage, and an English porcelain that shrinks 20ish percent. Ash is from a wood fired pizza place. Not certain of the wood

    Glaze Warping Pots

    I have glazed a few pots with a glaze made of 50/50 ash and ball clay. The clay is warping round bowls into tacos (both stoneware and porcelain, made by me and by someone else). I guess this is a fit issue, right? Is there something I should consider adding to rectify the issue? I should add that I know very little about glaze chemistry.

    Nicki, Agreeing with you that censoring '' is crazy. Can an administrator look into this? I'm surprised, frankly, that the board is censored at all. Anyway, I think Grayson Perry might be of interest to you. A brief search also brings up this: http://extremecraft.typepad.com/extreme_craft/2008/11/potterys-gay.html, which talks about Eric Scollon, though I'm not personally familiar with his work.

    They're all shinos. definitely just iron oxide on the red shino. The black on the very white plate almost looks too black for mackenzie, I don't know what it is but probably just iron oxide and maybe some manganese, over the shino.
  10. There's a specific thing that Warren sometimes does on some of his platters, these lines that are thick on the ends and thin in the middle, and I wonder if people think that this is just done with a brush, or it's poured, or what. I provide links to 3 examples below. http://www.schallergallery.com/artists/macwa/pieces/macw1520.jpg http://www.schallergallery.com/artists/macwa/pieces/macw1387.jpg http://www.jra.org/Get%20Involved/Images/WMackenzie.jpg Thanks, Armen

    Making a hole in a kiln for thermocouple

    I'm just here to say that this is really good of you to come in and let us know what happened though you don't stand to benefit.

    Chinese ceramic

    I think Chinese ceramics are great. If we didnt have Chinese ceramics, the poor would not be able to have nice little this and thats in their homes. The poor cannot afford $24 dollar wheel thrown cups. Scott, you're embarrassing yourself.
  13. The history of modern ceramics was strongly affected by Virginia Wirt, who developed american shinos in the 70s. I seem to find no trace of her after that. Did she continue working in ceramics? Is she still alive?

  15. Who is this and where is it?
