  2. Terra sigillata is why I got into ceramics. I'm a fan of classical Greek and Roman art and learning to throw pots "like them" has been a goal of mine ever since I began playing with clay. But I'm bad at the classical style. "Athenian Vase Construction," by Toby Schreiber has been a great help in learning technique. But it's also really hard, especially the gloss. On ancient examples, it's like a glaze, the level of shine is so high. Check out this kylix, it's perfection: http://webapps.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/explorer/index.php?oid=166270 I'd love to know how you guys approach pre-application surface treatment, application of the terra sig., and even firing (max cone range?) to get the glossiest finishes possible. I've got some articles from CAD and elsewhere, but I still can't seem to make it work that well.
  3. Hi out there. does anyone have a good recipe for a clear gloss glaze for white earthenware, firing to a max. of 1100 degrees centigrade. Many thanks for your help.
