  1. Dear everyone, I am quite new to a slip casting technique. Have made several plaster molds for casting porcelain. And had some success, but recently I have noticed that some of the greenware gets tiny pinholes and then, (because some cups doesnt have it) there are SOMETIMES also pinholes on the glaze. If i got it right, those tiny pinholes are the result of air bubbles or pieces of dust in the casting slip, right? But i wonder, do those pinholes influence the glaze? I am a bit confused, because some of the porcelain cups are not having those pinholes on the glaze and some do have. The thing is that the kiln in the studio where i used to fire my work is very old, and as a kiln technician said, it fires hire than it should and moreover fires unevenly. I wonder if this could be the reason for the pinholes on the glaze surface? Or maybe pinholes on the greenware? Or both? Do you have any ideas? Or similar experience? Thank you in advance!!
  2. I have been thinking about making my own kiln stilts on a large scale for low fired ware. Roselli uses molds and slip casts their stilts, I am fairly sure. Is there a benefit to this method? I was thinking about extruding mine and cutting them down to size. I cant see a downside; faster turnaround time, less initial time spent in preparation, no need to keep large quantities of slip or molds laying around, etc.. Am I missing something though? I've never made my own stilts or even used them, though I understand the premise. Any insight is much appreciated.
  3. I have been wanting to make a plaster mold of an ice cream cone but am worried that it will get soggy and fall apart. Does anyone have any tips or advice?
  4. HI all , What is the best way to create a base for my porcelain slip figures? Right now, I pour them and they are hollow and completely open at the base. - Would I need to buy actual clay to roll into a slab and attach to the bottom? - Is there a simple way to add a bottom base using the liquid slip? I am using Laguna porcelain slip, cone 6 for the figures. I am self taught with ceramics so thanks for your patience!

    The outside of the pie plate I decorated with a pattern of leaves in white slip. The bottom I glazed clear to show the contrast between the white slip and the Moroccan Sand underneath; the outside of the pie plate I glazed in Deep Sienna Speckle, which reminds me of pumpkin pie.

    Pie plate slip cast in white stoneware from Laguna. I painted three coats of Moroccan Sand slip on the inside and bottom of the plate. I carved an intricate design of leaves and vines around the bride and groom's initials and wedding date to show the white clay underneath the taupe clay. This was glazed in clear.

    This set was slip cast from my set of vintage molds from the 1970s. But I love texture so I added all the little details dot by dot and line by line. So relaxing.

    This is my "country fair quilt" platter. I wanted to call to mind embroidered fabric with this serving plate. It's cast from a vintage mold using white stoneware slip, then decorated with innumerable dots. I love running my fingers over slip trailing after a piece is glazed.
