Thank you all for sharing! I am so inspired! It's amazing how everyone's style vary's so much! Posted Image These are all beautiful!

I made my first teapot in the dark clay - (my first teapot ever) and as soon as my light green coyote shino arrives I will be testing that color to use on the pot.

Good because i meant it!

In the center of your pic- is that dark clay with white glaze or slip over it? I have been thinking about using a thick light colored glaze that will break through and expose the dark clay.

Here are some pieces I made with standard 266. I use a glaze called "Cream breaking red" and fire to cone 5. I will post the glaze recipe when I find it (I left my glaze notebook at school where I teach)....I apply the glaze quite thinly to get more of the clay color showing through...I would love to find a creamy white that shows up on this clay, but I can't imagine there is one that would work...


Hi...Oatmeal from amaco works really well over 266. Nice and creamy.

I experimented with coyote alabaster satin over this dark clay body. I ended up with some pinholes and I think it is a bit too thick. I wanted the clay color to come through a bit more. But it's nice to note what happens and learn from it. (remember I have been throwing for less than a year so they are not professional looking yet)

pay no attention to the ###### striped bowl in the background of the picture, needless to say It did not come out the way I wanted.

I too have been working with a darker clay body lately. I would still call this a medium dark but I am quite pleased with the feel and color of SC Hazelnut Brown ^6 clay body. I have started using a white slip in the wet stage, and working through the slip with tools to expose the clay then after bisque glazing with opaque and transparent glazes.








I know that this summer will be spent with testing new glazes and techniques to make the best of this darker body.

Actually that is part of a chalice and paten set. I make these for communion services and have sent them as far as Australia.
