Making Cookware

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had experience making cookware strictly out of clay, that can tolerate the heat from the stovetop or even a grill? I want to make some for an art class, and was hoping somebody knew a recipe for the clay and the glazes.

There is an article on Flameware in the May 2011 issue of Ceramics Monthly, page 12. It contains some recipes for Flameware clay bodies, and a strong disclaimer "make at your own risk!"

i saw a thrown piece out of a flame body, it looked groggy but doable on the wheel too. it was a beautiful stove pot with a lid. sweet!

 

also, there are moroccan pots called tagines that they use which i believe are placed on the flame, but i think they may have some type of barrier like sand or something so it is still not direct flame. anyone know btw?

Glad I found this post. I have been very interested in making flameware

I just made a Tagine pot.. well sort of! Mine isnt very tradional at all as far as how it looks except for the big cone lid. I made it using a high fire, oven safe clay but plan on using it over a small fire. From what little I have read so far you use very low heat and I am thinking my stoneware will be fine. I made a small and a large tea pot for my mom and she puts them on a gas stove all the time.

This has been discussed before...........

Please note that there is likely significant potential liability for the potter if you are selling this kind of work. Do your homework carefully. Personally, without a high policy limit product liability insurance policy, I'd not take on this task. In fact even WITH such a policy, I'd not do it. Risk / benefit analysis is not very good.

 

In this case.... you literally are "playing with fire" in more ways than our usual one.

 

best,
