clorenzetti posted a topic in Clay and Glaze Chemistryhi everybody, i'm a ceramic designer from michigan currently living in the netherlands. I would like to adapt one of Val Cushing's earthenware recipes to materials I can access in Europe. I think I have access to most of the chemicals expect for the Frit. Also I was wondering if there was an equivalent to EPK in Europe. E.P.K. (Plastic Kaolin) --- 10 Grolleg China Clay --- 20 Ball Clay --- 10 (Ferro) Frit # 3124 - 10 Talc - 10 Wollastonite - 10 Molochite - 30 + 2% Bentonite From what I gather so far the Molochite is pretty expensive from where I'm ordering it (Keramikos.nl) Cushing-LowFireClay.pdf
Hello, I'm Sarah and this is my first post. I hope I am posting correctly. I graduated from university in the UK two years ago from a mixed media degree where I specialised in Ceramics. Since graduation I have worked with a local potter as an apprentice and volunteered to wood fire with some potters. I have also been having one to one throwing tuition for over a year and getting to the stage of starting my own business and I have just purchased my first gas kiln. My website and blog are www.sarahgeeceramics.co.uk I am particularly looking for an apprenticeship or support somewhere to work in a ceramic community or directly with a potter that wood fires. I am very interested in learning these processes and would love the opportunity to develop. Does anyone know of any potters in Europe or places in Europe that wood fire and or gas fire ? And use throwing as their main production of ceramics? I would like to stay somewhere for a month or two ideally. Thanks so much for any help you can offer. Sarah
Do you know any flameware clay sellers (â€œflameproofâ€ clay formulated to withstand thermal shock when heated)? And do you know any in Europe? I'd like to make products of it, but am afraid of experimenting with the clay production. Many thanks in advance Palo
Hello, my name is Dennison and I am a recent BFA graduate from Eastern Michigan University. My studies were concentrated in sculpture, but I was primarily producing ceramics for use in social engagement and for making objects to use in short films. Currently I am traveling around Europe and working as a volunteer on different projects and farms, but I am extremely interested in pursuing a practice with ceramics. I am looking for some sort of opportunity such as an apprenticeship, assistantship, internship, or other studio/workshop help. I am not necessarily looking for a paid position, something volunteer related would be vauleable to me as well. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks for the help! Dennison
