  1. Hello, I'm no artist or sculptor but a classics graduate with a passion for Classical art and sculpture. I am in need of advice from professionals regarding a recently acquired a bust from a car boot sale. I purchased this for £16 and was hoping it might be possible to refurbish it for a Grey stone/marble look like the traditional classical sculptures and busts. I have taken this to an antique dealer who did not particularly care for it and appeared to want me gone knowing he would make no money from me. He believes the material is plaster as it was cold and sounds hollow. I also have taken this to the local Warhammer store where the staff were very interested and friendly and appeared to be knowledgeable. They remarked that the hair, base and drapery appear to be a kind of putty added after while the rest appears to be ceramic. He sanded a little off the bottom of the bust and when the paint underneath came away he was almost sure it was ceramic. I would like to restore the piece because of the numerous brush strokes visible all over and the rather haphazard painting where certain parts have been left bare. The Warhammer chaps suggested I begin with Acetone to reduce the brush marks down and then gentle sanding if that fails and they have kindly offered to paint/spray it in store with me when I reach a stage in which it can be done. My main questions are: Can anyone identify this material purely from the images I've provided? (I'm located in Cambridge UK if anyone local can help) Is the advice of Acetone and sanding good? I don't want to risk losing detail or damaging the piece overall, but I'm aware once I begin this process there is no going back. Is there any other recommendations for what to do? Apologies if any of this sounds stupid, I simply have no idea when it comes to painting, stripping paint, sculpting or materials. I'm only familiar with art styles and forms of the ancient world. While this is clearly neo-classical inspired, it's modern so I know virtually nothing on how to approach this.

  3. Hello, newbie here! Not too long ago, I decided I wanted to make a sculpture for my public library as a part of a Christmas decoration. I have my wooden dowel skeleton fixed up, putting it at 1'-2', and I'm using air dry clay. Problem is that it has been a while since I last used clay, and I don't know where to start WRT applying the clay on the skeleton. I tried putting slabs on it but it was too chunky on the legs and when I got up to the torso, it kept tilting over until it just broke off completely. Now, I added more dowels to the legs and spine, and will be adding more for the torso and violin, but I also need some tips on how to apply the clay, such as: Is it best to bulk it with foil or cotton balls and tape instead of clay? Which sculpting method is best? And should I do more than one? Which parts should I use coiled clay, and which parts should I use slab clay and pinch clay? Is this something I should do in parts for each day, or is there a different timely process? Thank you for the help!
  4. Hi, I plan to move in the next year or two, and I wanted to know if there are any great ceramic communities that I should know of before I choose a city/state to move. I currently live in Ohio but I am willing to move anywhere in the US. I just need a new environment and I prefer to be close to a ceramic community. Just tell me the city/state and how cool the community is. Thank you.
  5. This handmade sign is for the exterior of a hair salon. Any advice on how to mount it would be appreciated. There are 26 pieces it is approx 54 cm x 75 cm (21” x 30 “). There is some variation in thickness so it will have to be evened out with cement.
  6. I fired my kiln last night same as I have been for the last 2+ years to cone 03 usually takes about 7.26 hours, half way through I went to check the kiln and the orton sentry xpress control board displayed CPLT @ 4.11 it was still at 1400 degrees F so I waited til this morning to open it and 4 shelves of beads and pendants were completely melted i mean gone! a giant blob of glass 4 shelves deep I dont understand what happened, I fired the same as always, the control bored should have gave me an error message if it got too hot, my question is could my work have melted like this not because it got too hot but because it reached temperature twice as fast as normal?? a few months back i woke up to a kiln load of glazed ware that didnt finish fring the display read HTDE Heat temperature deviation kiln shut off because relay got stuck or something, i never figured it out i refired and watched the kiln and it worked without issue until today, and one more thing to add is that if the relay was stuck bridged than i would have had to physically shut off the kiln would have still been hot but the kiln read Completed after just 4 hours also the control bored would give an error if it overheated, I cant let this happen again, paragon wants to send replacement parts but i want to know what the problem even is, they said replace the control bored and the relay but why? which is it and what happened, did my kiln furniture and jewelry all melt because it fired too fast or did my kiln get too hot and somehow bypass showing an error message? and once again as far as it appears kiln seems to be working again thanks for any help! P.s. I attached images to see what happened to my high fire kiln shelves when fired to cone 03 in 4 hours and 11min

    I don't make many teapots, but I had the idea for this teapot with a hollow wave cut out of the body. It was an experiment, and it's not perfect but I still really like this piece. Wheel thrown and hand built with applied engobe and underglaze, sgraffito and hand painted waves. Fired to ^6 electric.

    This one is fresh from my latest firing. I'm in love with this one. It's wheel thrown with a pulled handle, underglaze decoration, and hand carved texture. It's glazed in 3 different commercial glazes and fired in my electric kiln.
  15. 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
  16. Hi guys, I am fairly new to ceramics and to this community. I wanted to ask if anyone had experiences/knowledge around sprinkling iron filings on pots with wet surfaces - right after glazing. Is it food safe? I know that there are glazes with high iron content but wanted to achieve a uneven effect with bigger speckles. This idea came about while watching and reading about a father and son potters from K. H. Wurtz. Here's a link of the video: On their website under their bio they mention the use of iron filings sprinkled on pots too. Any information about temperature, type of glazes, type of clay and their effects would be much appreciated. Regards, Jason
  17. Hi Everyone, I am a newbie and would like to learn how do we make ceramic pots or tiles. Currently, I am stuck in an application where i need to make a ceramic top for an instrument which can withstand temperature upto 500 C. The instrument is similar to a Hot Plate. Any knowhow on how to make such ceramic tops will be a great help for completing my project on time. Thanks in advance., Vinod

  19. Hello! I am looking forward to spending more time in this community. I'm curious if any of you have any ideas on what to do with extra mugs that came out bad for whatever reason? I have a HUGE "Wall Of Shame" compiled over time, with close to 1k mugs I haven't wanted to send out. I'm wondering if there's some way to make money off of it instead of just having to lose it all. I'd be very grateful for any ideas, and thank you VERY much!
  20. Hi! I'm Chandru and I just joined Ceramicartsdaily. I'm a curator on Etsy (I love ceramic cups) ..and I'm also part of a startup that made Around.io. We're doing this 14-city road trip meeting handmade sellers (and craft makers) and talking to them about their shops. Do you sell on Etsy? I want to know if there are any Etsy sellers around here and if yes, learn about your experience selling on Etsy.
  21. Hey everyone! I could use your help.... I've been trying to figure out what this artifact is. Would you happen to have a clue as to what it could be? Have you encountered anything similar? What culture does this come from? Some suggestions I've gotten are shower head and watering can spout. I would love to see your insight on such an item. Thanks! ​

    The mugs are made out of a beige clay I then coated the surface with a rustic green glaze and added a light touch to the rim with a light grey glaze.

  24. Hi guys, I have some pieces I want to cast in plaster for a mould. The pieces will not be particularly flexible and I worry they wont release properly. Its a basic vase shape that narrows in at the top like a pair- this taper part is a 6cm diameter x 8cm long pipe that I feel the plaster will grip too tightly to release and slip out. I haven't had much luck with soft soap and I'm wondering could I rub a candle on my piece to give it a shiny and slightly slippery surface for the plaster to cast? I worry it will ruin the porosity of the mould though. Has anyone done such a thing? Other solutions are welcome but I'm mostly wondering if wax will ruin plaster or there are similar products that wont. Cheers!
