      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.

Glaze on Bisque

Recommended Posts

I noticed years ago that there are two layers of glaze on a bisqued pot, dipped specifically. There is the glaze and if that layer is chipped off there is a faint layer of residue. Then there is the bisqued substrate. I just got to thinking today about that and wondered if anyone here knows what that residual layer is, and/or is called?

You mean if you chip off the glaze and there's that little bit of powder still clinging to the pot? I didn't know it had a name. It's just more glaze, I guess.

 

 

Thanks Neil. So much happens in that zone during the melt that I got to thinking that it could be possible that how it is formed effects how the clay/glaze interface forms, hence the possibility of a name. You are probably right, it is likely just a residual glaze powder.

 

But ya know, it never hurts to ask.
