  1. These are not ceramic artworks so I didn't want to post more than one without asking if anyone was interested in looking. This is crystal from a studio located in Nian, China carved from a Brazilian flawless 5 ton quartz crystal. The master studied the stone for 2 years and carving and polishing another 5 years by a team of a dozen carvers working under the direction of the master. These works are never seen by the public and are only owned by private collectors, although some government museums may have some of his work in their collections
  2. I am new to clay, both hand-building and throwing, and have been making images on pots in two ways- by painting in underglaze and by using commercially available texture mats and roller stamps. I would like to learn to carve into the clay myself. Can anyone recommend some good resource or resources to help me learn to do this? I would be particularly happy for book recommendations.

    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.
  4. Hi folks. I've been using a Silhouette Cameo cutter to create vinyl decals I put on my bisque before dipping in glaze to create a negative space design. (it's ain't easy creating a signature look and standing out in an art town) It's challenging (sometimes flat crazy making) because if you pull the decals too soon, glaze runs into the area you want to keep clean and too late, it flakes and chunks come off with the decal and I end up doing a lot of clean up or touch up. Add to that my unnatural love of gooey, reactive, unpredictable and persnickety glazes and it can be a real PITA, especially when doing runs of 200+ pieces. My cutter just broke and I won't be able to afford a new one any time soon. Once I was done stressing out and having a mini meltdown, I decided to try to create something new, different and cooler. I was thinking about carving stamps of my more popular designs and then using crayons as wax resist (I have no love for liquid wax resist and a very complicated history with it) Crayons are crazy cheap at the dollar store and easy to control. Bonus, I can leave some small bits unwaxed to add shadow/more texture... I've only made one stamp, I carved into some craft plaster of paris advertised as “carvableâ€, then pushed wet clay into the carving and bisque fired to create a stamp. So here are my questions…. Has anyone ever used crayons as wax resist? And did they work well for you? What is your favorite carving material for making stamps? I've added a couple of photos of what I've been doing to provide a visual… Thanks in advance

    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.

    Mug cover

    From the album: Handbuilding work

    Two of my dogs like half and half and sugar with their coffee so I made a couple of mug covers to keep them out. There is a footring to keep the cover from sliding off the mug. The gingko leaf was carved at leather hard using a needle tool. I'm very happy with the way they turned out.

    trinket dish

    From the album: Handbuilding work

    Trinket dish with carved goldfish design. The carving was done after the piece was just past leather hard and heading to bone dry. I got a little chipping but with the design and glaze it looks pretty interesting. This is also a lesson in creating a spinner ... no footring and one of the clay supports slipped out of position when it was drying so it's a little wonky but it's on my desk!

    Three mise en place bowls

    From the album: newer work

    These three porcelain mise en place bowls are glazed with a clear deep blue and oversprayed with an active rutile glaze. I like these because they remind me a little of salt-glazed work.
