    Lucy Rei Glazes?

    Lucy Rie's glaze Golden Manganese- did anyone find it in Ceramic Review ? Thanks!
  2. Two mornings later...I'm doing a 180 on this topic. Maybe its the PBS documentaries I watched this weekend but I can understand the Alaskan's position on this topic now in relation to censorship or protection. Art can easily be used out of context & perhaps (& unfortunately ) censorship is still required in this world. Visual art is the transmission of ideas and I firmly believe that it can be appreciated in an educational setting but the whole world is still far from rational. Looks like I got up on the depressing side of the bed today ! On a brighter note, here is an article about art used rationally. https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/new-10-bill-featuring-viola-desmond-goes-into-circulation-next-week-1.4173055 You'll notice the flip side of the note includes an eagle feather.

    Raku I think but pit would be interesting. They take forever to dry! I have them up in the kitchen- not the cold basement and they still aren't safe to bisque.
  4. Yep- that's why I just took a walk under are cold blue sky. Lots of chickadees out there today and its time for icers. Trying to decide if I want to make one pair of shoes into permanent icers as I can install cleats into them or just get the removable kind. People do have lots of opinions on this and there may be personal digs that I didn't want to participate in!
  5. Just because they are sacred doesn't mean that you shouldn't discuss them, learn about them, appreciate them, etc. especially in an educational setting & putting restrictions on this is like burning books! It is censorship. How would people like it if one political group or one religion or one something or other- took over & told you what you could or couldn't look at, learn about, appreciate, etc. ya I woke up on the wrong side of bed and got on a soapbox this morning .
  6. I agree with Curt, above. If you are researching the art form and then presenting the topic in an accurate manner then I don't believe it is "cultural theft". The accusation of cultural theft is what is wrong and represents a way of thinking that is detrimental to the educational process.

    Glazing a mortar and pestle

    I made a few out of porcelain and left the pestle unglazed. It works

    POST RAKU FUMING

    yes, plus I saw some nice instructions on you tube. I could do it outside on a portable burner. I'll go that route if I have to!

    POST RAKU FUMING

    I wonder if there is a Canadian source for these. I see US companies that ship to Canada but I'd like to find out ahead of time if I need some special import papers to have the transaction go smoothly- I have the ferric chloride but its the stannous that seems hard to find here.

    Carbon Trap Shino

    agreed- 012 with flames licking out the edge of the door the whole time and that stall later on when she's almost done ( & you're tired & wanting to shut the kiln down & go to bed!)

    Carbon Trap Shino

    wow- that is dark! I've never had Malcom Davis go that dark- did you start reducing at 012? I've had Penn State Shino go to a nice dark grey with black edges on the rims & even celadon with black on the rims when I started reducing early in the firing.
