  1. Hi, I am wanting to get a glaze like the image shown on this mug. Anyone know what it is and how to get it please? The middle part I assume is oxide? and the blue / pale white rings, maybe another glaze? thank you, any advice appreciated. Don
  2. Hi All, I wonder if anyone can identify this mug please? More importantly can anyone tell me what glaze this is? where to buy some more or less the same? what temp to fire at to get this look? or if not how to achieve this look. It has a real silky feel, sort of a matt satin glaze I think. Any info would be good. Thank you in advance.
  3. Hello! I have recently made the transition from earthenware to stoneware to create mugs and dinnerware. I am fairly confident I applied the glaze to thickly to these mugs as I have made three and all three have small thin hairline cracks around the areas of thicker glaze... bummer.. a lesson learnt. I wonder if i can save these mugs though? The cracks are only on the outside surface there are no cracks to the bottom or inside. Shall I write them off (use might be dangerous) consider them seconds or try to repair the cracks? I have seen a few methods of repairing on google, I don't want the repairs to be too obvious, Would be nice if i could repair and re-glaze to blend the appearance of the repair. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I may be a little sentimental over these as they are my first function stoneware makes.. Emma

  5. Being new to ceramics (first time I touched clay was this past January), I want opinions. I sculpt very large sculptures and attach them to vessels. I recently had a very experienced ceramicist tell me that I am "wrong" for coining my work as a mug. Link to photo of one https://www.instagram.com/p/BWBiI6oD9kQ/ I feel that people can see what it is and can make their own assumptions and how they plan to use it. Am I wrong for projecting it as a mug? I need input from the community.
  6. Green geometric cup

    From the album Favorites

    I love all the varied shapes a good mug comes in. The shape is my current favorite. It works well to separate the textured areas from the geometric sgraffito in the bottom. It has a pulled handle and commercial glazes and was fired to cone 6 electric.
  7. I have asked this question elsewhere too............If you enter into a competition and they have a specific theme..."chawan", " yonomi" , "tea bowl", "tea cup", "mug" ; How do you define it? How do you decide what to enter? Connie Christensen is our newest online teacher and the question came up when she made accessories to her teapot. Is this just a cultural thing, or is there any significant definitions? What say you? Antoinette Badenhorst www.porcelainbyAntoinette.com www.Teachinart.com
  8. Mug Set Insides

    From the album Ceramics Fall 2016

    I made 4 similar mugs from the recycled clay and iron filings in a glaze called moonlight. I have learned that a little goes a long way for the iron filings, and next time I think I will use less. Most of the filings came through on the inside of the cup, rusting slightly but covered thinly by glaze. Does any one else have experience with using too much iron filings? Do you feel it causes any safety hazards to the average human?
  9. House on the House - Image transfer detail

    From the album Custom Mugs and Commission Concepts

    Handbuilt stoneware mugs, approximately 12oz capacity, fired cone10. Surface treatment includes 3-d dwelling, carved-out hillside community, and underglaze image transfers. The transfers are new to me...using a CriCut Explore to create silkscreen masks through which thickened underglaze is printed onto rice paper. Once dried, the surface of the mug is coated in underglaze, the transfer is sprayed until saturated, and then pressed/burnished (with pint side to the mug) onto the bisque fired surface. I'm not yet comfortable enough with this technique to try it on greenware but it should work equally well. Certainly there is a story to these mugs...the short version centers around work in some of the poorest slums in Central/South America in contrast with visits to numerous iconic cites in Europe.

  13. Butterfly mug

    From the album Favorites

    This was a new take on a design I've been doing awhile. It may have spurred a new variation on several of my usual pots. I'm excited to see what comes of it. The pattern at the bottom was created with paper resist and sgraffito. After bisque fired, black underglaze was applied and wiped back, then colorful accents added to the wings. It's finished with commercial ial glazes and fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
  14. 24 oz green leaf mug

    From the album Favorites

  17. Commissioned Piano Mugs

    From the album Custom Mugs and Commission Concepts

    A small set of hand-built mugs (slab construction) with wheel-thrown rims for family friends...both of whom are musically gifted. The orange has a look of atmospheric firing, but it is actually Amaco Velvet orange underglaze. The sheen over the underglaze is from a light coating of clear. The interior and rim were dipped in Woo's Blue. The details on the piano keys are brushed on. All of the rest of the glazing was sprayed. These are 12oz (.35ml) and stand approximately 5in. (12.7cm) tall. These were fired to Cone 10 in reduction.

  18. Handbuilt (Mostly) Mugs

    From the album Custom Mugs and Commission Concepts

    These are my prototypes for a new direction in hand-building...at least mostly hand-building. I have never been completely satisfied with the resulting rims on hand-built mugs, so I have incorporated wheel-thrown rims that feel so much better on the lips. The k-cup in the image is simply to add something appropriate for scale...and wouldn't be part of a sale *grin*. All of these are 12-14 oz. mugs and the style and production technique are very similar to the work of Sandra Blain (Thanks, Sandy!).

Handle is pulled and attached after the rim is in-place and black keys have been cut from a slab and attached/scored & slipped. Interior and rim is glazed with Woo's Blue.

  21. Keyboard Mug - Note Handle

    From the album Custom Mugs and Commission Concepts

    This is a 14oz-16oz wheel-thrown, stoneware mug with slab-built (black only) keys attached to a carved/altered keyboard design. The handle idea is NOT original but borrowed/copied/altered from another artist's project. When I find the name, I will certainly give proper attribution. Interior is glazed with Woo's Blue. Exterior details are black and white, brushed-on, Amaco Velvet underglazes with a top coating of clear. This is a concept mug for a commissioned gift project that is currently underway. The basic form and structure may remain the same but the color scheme for the actual project will be altered considerably.
