  1. Hello all, This is my first post here, though I have been stalking these forums for a while! To briefly introduce myself, I have recently started out as a studio potter in Walthamstow, East London (home to William Morris and birthplace of the Arts and Crafts movement way back when). I studied ceramics from 13-18, developing a love for the smoke and drama of Raku and rediscovered the joy of clay just over a year ago - been an addict ever since I'm lucky enough to work with a talented illustrator who puts underglaze designs on some of my porcelain and white stoneware pieces, but I have rather been letting the side down lately by covering her lovely drawings in a rather funky looking transparent (a pre-mix from the local supplier). The effect I'm going for is a perfectly transparent with a very high gloss, but what I'm getting is a milky glaze with a bizarre crinkly textured surface that is neither matt nor shiny! Here's what it looks like: I've fired to cone 6,7 and 8 with varying thicknesses and keep getting similar results. Please can you lovely people recommend a recipe that produces a high sheen and will really bring out an underglaze design on a porcelain/stoneware body. Many thanks!

    Cut bowls with texture slabs

    From the album: 2016

    Thrown bowls, cut at right angles to the rim. Thin slabs textured with bark, stamps, shells etc. - pieces attached to back part with front cut edge eased forwards to emphasise the contrast between the organic and engineered. Oxide washes applied at dry greenware stage, fixed in the bisqued firing. 3 back pieces were dipped in transparent glaze, front one dipped in tin white (to cover a repair that fired a different colour!). Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.
  3. From the album: 2016

    Experimenting with bought tissue transfers and stencils as resist. Thrown white earthenware. Dipped in transparent glaze & fired to 1100oC in an electric kiln.
  4. From the album: 2016

    Small bowl with pinched floral additions. Stains added to transparent glaze painted on flowers. Whole piece dipped in transparent glaze. Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.
  5. I am a high school ceramics teacher (this is my first year doing ceramics in 6 years after a transfer within my district) so I am relearning everything about ceramcis, and kiln firing is very new for me. The school has a Geil gas kiln. I am (attempting) cone 10 reduction firing and I can not get Vegas Red to come out red. One piece came out transparent (middlish-front of the kiln). There were a couple that were towards the bottom back of the kiln that had some red come out. I am following a schedule I found in a notebook from the previous teacher. It fires around 12 hours. The glaze is the premixed glaze from aardvark. I hope this is enough information to help me out I am not sure if I am getting into reduction properly or not. Any help would be great, if I need to provide more information please let me know. Like I said this is new for me and trying to figure it all out. Thanks, Michael
