      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.

New Work -A Bit Different For Me

Recommended Posts

I unloaded a few gas fired glaze kilns today-all porcelain . 

I have a friend who was very specific on his plate colors-that is he wanted it all-as its a gift I granted his wish.

I made 7 plates for him and they all came out perfect-Its what I call landscape as its many glazes.

This busy looking combos is becoming more popular is certain areas I have notices so I'm making more mugs and smalls in this combo-its just a lot of glaze work.

Ooooh! I like it!!! Which glazes did you use Mark? What cone did you fire them to? The darker half reminds me of watching the flames dancing in our wood stove on a cold winter night. Beautiful!

Fired to a soft cone 11 about 2 oclock in reduction.

The glazes are home built

There are 6 on this set of seven plates

The brown is called red black its a saturated iron glaze with a dash of Mels which has some rutile in it added as well a small amout from my scrap bucket (the bucket I rinse all stir sticks and mixers in) I add a small amout which helps this glaze out . You wull find most scrap glazes are brownish usually and red black

The orange underglaze is Mels

The black is my zacks black that I have posted the recipe here many times-a saturated cobalt Oxide black with only 3 ingredients

The overglaze is called orange and its a rutile base glaze fron Alfreds I think orginally-it was in ceramic monthly about two decades ago-I have been using it since 1973. The white overglaze is called Billy joes butterwhite which I have altered to segment more.

The gold is Palmamar gold from a small J.C. near San Diego which a old collage mate used to teach and may still.

I am not that familair with Glicks glaze work-I think I have seen his book on extruder stuff and think of his forms but have no mental feeling of glaze work for him.

I should have shot a photo of the backs as well-Maybe in the am.

Its go time here for a big show in Az later this month so time is limited during daylight as I have pots to throw dry and trim.

I love this climate at times-I extruded  60 soap dishes was able to hole them and sponge them and dry them all today (not 100% dry yet) all in the sunlight while unloading a few kilns and packing van.

If you live in a snow state you have my condolences. Except you New Englanders you signed up for it long ago. ( I spent 1 winter in New Hampshire) cured me straight away at 15 years old.

thanks, pres, for the link to some of glick's work.  the pieces i have date from the 1970's when i was able to buy a chalice for our local church and a small tumbler for myself.  since then i have added a big plate similar to those shown, a longish tray, a teapot and some tiles. i was able to watch him flicking glazes onto many of his plates once on a visit to his studio.  

 

it is easy to spot a glick but i know there is a british potter whose work is similarly glazed.  (name begins with an M??) cannot remember his name at the moment.

 

anyone who wants to establish a particular "style" might consider these pieces.  i notice an announcement for a retrospective in 2016 at Cranbrook.  still wish i had been able to go there.

did anyone else see the picture by someone who has had enough of snow, so she spraypainted tulips on the sides of her walkway?  i understand my house is getting another 10 inches tonight.

I love the bottom so much!! Did you comb the glazes? I love these circles, it's like a raindrop fell there!

Those are trim marks that make that look combed-I leave marks where work was done-many try to cover the way things are made . My esthetic and belief is leave some of how it was made on the piece.

Just a bit of visual candy for those of you that have not seen J. Glick's work.

Enjoy,

That work reminds me of some of my favorites I have said on Pinterest. I think his name is Chris Baskin.
