Smoke And Glaze

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to try to "smoke" a piece.

So I think (maybe it's wrong :rolleyes: ) there's 2 way:

  1. I bisque fire, then I smoke fire, then I glaze with transparent glaze to keep the smoke effect
  2. I bisque fier, i fire earthware or stoneware, then I smoke fire

Friendly advice are welcome :P

I'm no expert, but I think you will want to bisque fire, then just smoke the piece.  If you fire it again, hot enough to glaze it on top of the smoke, it will probably burn off the carbon.  So it would look as if you had not smoked it.  Others will probably know better.

If you look at the top of the page and hit the Ceramic Arts Daily link you will find a ton of information on this under "pit firing".

Many other techniques use smoke to enhance the pieces ...enjoy!
