      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

  1. I have been experimenting with black iron oxide wash lately. The first time I tried it I used a cone 6 fired, unglazed clay (Miller 45 Buff) and got a nice clean wipe with the wash remaining in the crevices and achieved an even tone over the rest of the piece. When I tried it on bisque ware (05) it was another story. No matter how much I scrubbed I ended up with a blotchy wash on the flat surfaces. I am wondering if there is a trick to working with washes on bisque that I am missing. I thought about wetting the piece first and/or making the wash thinner perhaps. I don't want to have to take up precious space in a glaze firing to vitrify the pieces before I can apply the wash. Wondering if anyone has experienced this problem and how you resolved it. Thank you.
  2. Iron Oxide Slip

    Hi, i'm having trouble with iron oxide slip applied at the greenware stage. i've noticed that a thin layer gives varied colours and a thick layer gives either black or nothing- does it burn off? (i use a transparent glaze over this) additionally, a lot of the colour washes out on cleaning after bisque. what's going wrong and how can i stablize the slip to give me a solid black? i use stoneware fired to cone 09 bisque and cone 6 glaze. thanks!

  8. Carved poppy tumbler in Slate Blue, Side B

    From the album Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    This one has the addition of iron oxide on just the flowers, stems and leaves, but I felt like it added very little so I won't bother next time. The glaze on its' own has a lovely break and brings out the design beautifully.

    From the album Alabama

    Working in pairs!!! My late friend Linda loved to carve, but had trouble throwing. I would throw and trim things and she'd carve them. Her thrown pottery was so wonky I consider it folk ark! I'm lucky enough to have a couple of her carved vessels and really lucky to have a couple of her wonky pieces. This is cone 10 stoneware, glazed inside and on the neck and the rest is stained with a black iron oxide wash..
