  1. Recently read an article in CM about an artist she made these over the top serving pieces like the individual pea server and pickle servers that she made in to these 50's inspired performance installations. I am looking for her name as I wanted to share her work with my students but can not seem to find it any where. Thanks for the help
  2. Rocky Zinc Oxide

    Thank you will try it tomorrow.
  3. I am firing some work that is glazed cone 6 on the inside with just colored slips and an oxide wash on the outside i need to fire to cone six and was hoping to put the decal on the colored slips during this firing if i do a thin glaze wash or 3124 wash could i put the decal on top so it has some flux to adhere it or could i put the decal on and thin wash over it. The image is not detailed but i dont want it to rub off or fire out. Thank you Jp

  5. I have a five gallon bucket of zinc oxide that has clumped up to various size hard lumps that I need to get back down to size. I assume this is from being stored for a long time and moisture has gotten to it. I dont own a ball mill but have seen various diy models or if I fire in bisqe bowl would that break it down. Thank you Jp
  6. I am a high school ceramics teacher just started at my current school which happends to have a small cantanary arch kiln that has never been fired was built about 10 years ago. I am about to get it hooked up and checked out and really considering 6 reduction. I fire my on work to 6 and my thought is that most of thoes glazes would melt and work in reduction. I also think economically its better and I really dont want to be sitting at school waiting for 10 to drop while my family eats dinner. My questions are would firing schedual be the same I do a body reduction around 08 and would keep in light reduction till 6. Do most oxidation glazes work in reduction. Does anyone have a good cheap base glaze for cone six reduction. Anything else you might want to add about 6 reduction vs. 10 in a classroom setting would be a big help. Thanks Jpeel
