My first (successful) covered baking dish

Recommended Posts

When I first started throwing one of the first things I tried to make was a covered baking dish and I was less than successful at it. Besides being beyond ugly the inside shape was not at all practical, The lid wasnt a good fit.. just all around bad.

 

Lastnight I decided to throw another one and I really like how it turned out, size, inside/outside shape, lid etc. To me it turned out great and I cant wait to try it out after I get it fired.

It's a beautiful baking dish! What kind of clay are you using? I would like to make a covered chicken roaster and wondered what would be best.

 

 

 

I get my clay from Columbus clay. I use Matherstone, it is the only clay I have used since I got my own wheel. It is very durable, I made my mom a couple of tea pots and she actually uses them on top of her gas stove to make tea and she drinks tea often. I told her she shouldnt but you know how moms can be.

 

here is a link to their clay page and you can read about it. http://www.columbusclay.com/Clay.htm

I'm always finding such neat and new things on their site, but it's making my pocket book really sore!!! :(

I totally understand, just in clay even! When I am really in the mood and have time I can go through 50 lbs in less than 2 days!

very nice... i like the handle... the little hole u make at the handle makes it looks like a steel pot.... how big is it?

 

 

 

I would have to measure it but I would guess it would hold about 2 quarts.

Yes, it's a very nice shape. But the foot looks too thin from the angle in your photo; when you cut the pot off you may cut through it.

 

 

 

Its just the picture.. This has already been bisqued and will get glazed and fired again soon

So where is the final piece? Did you try it in a preheated oven?

Mom puts ceramic on the stovetop?! My guess is that it will take so much abuse, but eventually she will be cleaning up some water..and that there is a reason archeologists find tons of water jugs and bowls, but fewer solid ceramic cooking pots... though this is cool

No finished product yet but it has been bisc fired. I still have to glaze it. Should be no problem with the oven, the stoneware clay I use is formulated for baking ware. I will share a pic as soon as I get it glazed and fired.. should be over next few days.
