Rediscovering the joys of clay
I am a recently retired Primary School headteacher. I have set up a home studio and am re-learning how to throw. I like to alter, carve and incise my pieces, being more interested in shape, design and form, than colour and textural finishes. I am currently working in smooth, white earthenware and would love to move on to porcelain once I feel my skill level justifies the cost! I have a small electric kiln and am grappling with glazing and firing. I prefer the smooth, matte finish of my bisqued ware, to glazed pieces, but am trying to find simple glazes that add protection without detracting from the unglazed form. I am currently firing between 06 and 04 with varied success.
