Amazed by glazes on earthenware

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am fairly new to this pottery adventure, and in the studio where I learn, we use clay that is glazed and fired to Cone 6, stoneware. I love the colors, but we mostly dip and pour. I got a few books out of the library, and I am blown away at what some artists do on earthenware!!! I think my favorite is Jane Cox of London. Question: is her type of glazing only able to be done on earthenware, or can you do it on B-Mix and the 60 and 80 clays we have (and I don't know if that is the formal name or not. Sorry.) And are there any good resources I can find that will give me an idea of how it is done? Thank you in advance!

Nancy

Sorry if this comes thru twice. The link explains she uses slips not underglazes. I am guessing that dark slip and some paper resist motifs to form her patterns underneath the transparent coloured earthenware glazes are what make her work look so good - oh and of course - skill! She also does a lot of silkscreening on paper - which to me seems to fit her style of decoration.
