Finally hooking my kiln up this weekend. Been a rough couple weeks, but hot-place or high water, I`m cranking out yarn bowls like a madrodent.
It's been raining here in Swansea... So I have not been able to fire outside yet which means I have not yet made red faience. Sad times! BUT my supervisor loved my faience so its lookin' gd
Well, mixing all the different clays together worked for the pit fired bowls. I decided to make a fiber tempered vessel and didn't remember how to add Spanish Moss to clay, so I threw 8 lbs. clay on top of a mass of moss...Did not work...So I cut the Spanish Moss into 4 inch sections and wedged that in bit by bit. That worked, so I added moss until I got tired adding moss. Now all there is to do is to fire it next week.
Oh man, one 35 square test done and I am pooped. They really take some concentration.
A6000 camera just arrived! Now to figure out how to run it to take some really good RAW data pottery pictures.
Glaze load last night. Shut off at 3:30am. Tired this morning. Long wait to see what new glaze did.
So it's back to University today. My faience pieces get submitted next week and I have to do a talk to the class and lectures about my research. Thank you to the Ceramic Forum for all your help and advice!
Just bought a new Sony A6000 camera.
