  1. Dante makes a small impression

    From the album WIPs

    More WIP. Some molds I made along with some random objects used for impressions, including a cameo of Dante. -The cup in the upper left is not my work btw.
  2. Hello Again, I am using an electric test kiln to make smaller items, including flat pendants with a hole that's about 2, maybe 3/16ths before bisque firing. Any ideas for an easy way to protect the holes so that I don't have to spend a lot of time cleaning out glaze from the holes before the glaze firing? Last time, I just painted on glaze and then tried to clean up any slops in the holes which took forever. My next try, I guess, would be carefully trying to use a brush to apply wax resist - sounds time consuming as well? Any ideas? thanks!!
  3. Hi There, I'm working on some porcelain stud earrings and refrigerator magnets. What is the best glue to use to attach ceramic to non ceramic like metal and the magnets. In the past I have tried superglue, which didn't work at all and hot glue, which works but tends to pop off unpredictably on glazed pieces. I would like to be able to glue glazed ^6 porcelain. Thanks!

  6. Wearable Ceramics

    Hey guys, just recently I was assigned a project dealing with ceramics. In the the midst of my research I discovered that ceramics are no longer just any ideal material for pottery, dinnerware, or sculpture. I discovered ceramic have found their way into the world of jewelry and textile fashion. Which from a personal standpoint, is a very interesting subject. The thought of using a material that is stereotyped as “frail,†(due to glass and porcelain ability to shatter when being dropped) made me wonder why would a jeweler or a textile designer would use this material? Why would they choose a ceramic material as an alternative to it’s gold, silver, and cotton counterparts? I feel like the plethora of colors, textures, and shapes that can be made out of any ceramics, are the partly to blame for this new phenomenon. During my research I came a across one problem, this is such a new form of jewelry and textile design, that I have yet to find much about it. Sure, I believe that there is some remnants of prehistoric ceramic jewelry, but for the life of me, I can I find it. Everywhere I have gone, and searched has left me empty handed. Could I possibly be using the wrong keywords during my search? Is there an origin story, or a history that I do not know about? Is there a person who I haven't I talked to? Sure there is! I Personally believe that for the amount of time and effort that I already put into this project, I have yet to discover what I really want to know. I believe I know nothing and I have everything to learn. I want to ask the internet to engage in conversation to grow this topic! For the information that is seek I will list below. Some of the items that I will list, I have already found the information. But not everything is certain in life, so feel free to list your thoughts, comments, discovers, and concerns. I feel as though wearable ceramic is a poorly documented subject. But I want to change that, for not only myself but for future pioneers who also want to create great things in the future.

  8. Hello Good potters, I've just made some stoneware pendants, finished in a dry matte glaze. Are glazes that are not food safe, such as dry matte or those marked with a 'CL' caution label (using commercial glazes) safe to use on jewelry that will be touching the skin? Many thanks--
