      Moderators needed!   12/08/2017

      Ceramic Arts Network is looking for two new forum moderators for the Clay and Glaze Chemistry and Equipment Use and Repair sections of the Ceramic Arts Network Community Forum. We are looking for somebody who is an active participant (i.e. somebody who participates on a daily basis, or near daily) on the forum. Moderators must be willing to monitor the forum on a daily basis to remove spam, make sure members are adhering to the Forum Terms of Use, and make sure posts are in the appropriate categories. In addition to moderating their primary sections, Moderators must work as a team with other moderators to monitor the areas of the forum that do not have dedicated moderators (Educational Approaches and Resources, Aesthetic Approaches and Philosophy, etc.). Moderators must have a solid understanding of the area of the forum they are going to moderate (i.e. the Clay and Glaze Chemistry moderator must be somebody who mixes, tests, and has a decent understanding of materials). Moderators must be diplomatic communicators, be receptive to others’ ideas, and be able to see things from multiple perspectives. This is a volunteer position that comes with an honorary annual ICAN Gold membership. If you are interested, please send an email outlining your experience and qualifications to jharnetty@ceramics.org.

As I have seen in the past, CLG appears mat even where thick (^6 oxidation).


In the same firing, was a hummingbird bath fired in two sections. The base was fired upside down, as pictured and the glaze looks as expected. The bowl was fired on its foot but is inverted in the photo to show the underside which ran, is satin to glossy. I have no doubt that the glaze was thick-- I am having difficulty handling larger pieces-- but I would never have expected this bronze and turquoise-ish glossy effect.


I am wondering if this is one of those glazes that is quite effected by reduced airflow. This form is quite wide but very shallow. I'm not sure this would make a difference. I've only seen this happen to near-closed forms where a glaze on the inside of a pot looks very different from the outside.

the first jpg is very pixelated and difficult to see what the glaze was suppose to look like. the bowl is die finitely too thick. What is the recipe? maybe that would help us determine what happened. the bronze metalic is definitely unusual.
