  1. does anyone know how these are done? I've never seen color like this before and I buy from an extremely large ceramic/ glaze supplier
  2. I have used glass in some of my works in the past and truly enjoy the look of it. I rarely use this decoration because it was my understanding that any piece created with glass being melted and fused to the clay body was not food safe. I have seen other potters that use this process and it is being sold as being ok for food. Did I understand incorrectly or is there some way to utilize glass in some way that actually does render the surface that would come in contact with food safe for consumption? Thanks y'all! Just looking for answers~ Debi
  3. Hi All, I'm a high-schooler taking a Ceramics II course, and I love it! I specialize in wheel throwing and I'm really interested in fusing glass on ceramic pieces. How would I do this? My teacher recommended putting marbles in my bowls to melt the glass with the glaze, but I'm curious on what others have to say! Also, where can I either get special glass, or get marbles to melt! Write me back! Thanks, Travis
  4. Hi! Does anyone know whether it is possible to attach porcelain to glass? I mean, attaching a small amount of glass to porcelain is easy, but can a little bit of porcelain be attached to a piece of glass? For example, can a drinking glass be covered with porcelain (lets say 0.5mm thick layer) and then fired? -Harry
  5. Because I tend consistently to throw goblet bowls too small, I decided to make just the stems and to glue on wine glass tops. I've done a little research about the best glues, but there's nothing like the voice(s) of experience to reassure me. I use E6000 for my Redneck Wine Glasses (glass to glass; no pottery involved) with a disclaimer saying "Not Dishwasher Safe" because I don't know whether the glue will withstand the dishwasher temperatures. Have any of you done the glass goblet tops to stoneware or porcelain stems and found a glue/bonding agent that you would recommend? Thanks!

    ok before your say craft or more "duckies and chickens" let me tell you about this. Started as an exersize in clay shrinkage and designing to fit. As we know, clays have different shrinkage numbers and temp certainly has an effect on that shrinkage. The experiment started with just going by the shinkage numbers given with the clay body. I soon discovered that there is some deviation to that number (they should give the average shrinkage and an observed deviation). But I digress. I liked the way they looked and they were different. So...... I measure the appropriate dimensions on the found glass objects, interesting things from thrift stores. I then throw a base and a lid, based on the glass dimension, plus the published shrinkage, plus a fudge factor that you have to determine with the clay you are using. I bisque, the glaze, fire to cone 5 (stoneware). Usually now, I get a pretty good fit. Sometime the lid is a little big or small though. if I like the way the lid looks, I'll grind or add cork or foam filler. I found that folk like and actually buy these. If you want more info, shoot me an emai.
