  1. Hello! I hope someone with more experience out there can help me! I am making a wall hanging piece that is essentially a collage of flowers within a round frame, probably around 18 by 24 inches. I am in need of advice on the logistics of this project. I am unsure if it would be more effective to make a large slab and attach the flowers to it before firing (this option scares me!) or if I should divide the overall piece into 4 quadrants and arrange the flowers so when the pieces are put together on the wall- you cant see the seam. The other approach I was thinking of would be making individual flowers, firing them and then adhering them to a wooden backing. Lots of options and things to think about. I will be using cone 5-6 Leguna Frost Porcelain. I attached a photo shopped image for reference.. Thanks! Audrey

  3. Firing Flowers

    I'm fairly new to pottery (only a month and a half since I bought my wheel) and yesterday attempted to make ceramic roses. They turned out quite well, but I'm wondering how to fire them. The petals are rather thin and I'm worried they might crack/fall off in the kiln. This is only my first flower though so not a big deal if it doesn't work. In short, what's the best way to make/fire flowers? I saw another person made each petal separately, fired them, and put them together afterwards. My petals are too brittle to do that I think. Has anyone found a good way to make flowers and fire them well? Also, what do I do about a stem? Should I make a ceramic stem and then attach it to the flower after it's fired? Thank you, Willow

    I have carved some floral designs onto some of my parian vases. I think they would make lovely candle holders or lamp shades. New direction possible.

    Thrown in B-Mix. I carved the poppies then applied Duncan's Bright Kiwi to the stems and leaves, their Light Pink to some flowers, and a mix of their Bright Pink and Light Saffron to get peach. The yellow is Laguna's Yemen Yellow Engobe, and some of the poppies are done in a thin layer of Dynasty Red so it shows up lightly and doesn't overpower the pastels. Interior and top is glazed in Laguna's Peach Blush and exterior has one of their clear glazes. I really, truly loved how this one came out. It's for once even better than I imagined.

    Another view of my wildflower batter bowl, with several of my tiny wildflower teaspoon rests. I have a whole bouquet of them to put in my Etsy shop!

  15. Wildflowers Batter Bowl, 24 oz

    From the album Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    I don't even want to talk about how long this took to make ... more a work of art than a production piece. But I enjoyed making it so much and this is the first piece I've ever made that came out even better than I imagined. I love everything about it (this never happens to me). I used white slip on the inside of the bowl and white engobe on the flowers so the colors would show true. It worked very well, but some of the little speckles showed through anyway, which I found completely charming.

  17. Hello fellow pottery artists, I am wondering if someone has tried to use cake decoration techniques (to make flowers etc.) on clay or porcelain bodies. My neighbor does the most beautiful cup cakes decorated with roses, lilies and different other flowers and I was wondering if this can also be done with clay. It would be a good idea of doing wall plagues and other decoration things. Has anyone tried this yet? Thanks for any comments. Regards Gabi in Perth/Australia
