Topics I've Started

Input Would Be Great!

17 November 2014 - 03:17 PM

I just uploaded a gallery with my current beer / Coffee cups (they hold 12-16 oz)  Polish and german designs.  I am working to make them have more of a "stein" look.  The old ones were 1# and the new ones are 1.5 # to make them bigger.  Planning to do more cobalt oxide wash on these than the previous batch.  Other than that it's just a clear glaze with clay body shining through. I would love to hear some more tips if anybody sees a way I can make them better. <3 Thanks!! 

Making "bosses" (Little Bumps On Old Pots)

I have the stamp a friend made- does anyone have experience or tips to doing this? I was told to slip and score each one which is fine but I want to be sure its the most efficient way

My First Show!

26 September 2014 - 01:36 PM

My first show is this sunday- I did a mock up of my display in my yard.  I am having a difficult time opening the canopy (you can see aside it is not set up) Good thing I didn't wait until the last minute to try it.  Somebody mentioned that they used bags or boxes of clay as weights. I don't have weights at the moment but i have clay.  How would you suggest I go about doing this? Is a whole 50# box needed or do I need to go with a 25# bag? Thanks!!  


 I would also love if you have some pointers or obvious display mistakes I am making.  

Repair Bisque Piece?

14 September 2014 - 11:27 PM

My favorite bowl exploded in the kiln (bisque fire) It's completely in tact except for a sculpted appliqué piece (I actually put the clay on the piece and then sculpted it) I REALLLY want to save this bowl.  It's my largest bowl yet 8#, and had a face sculpted in it.  The front of the face blew right off... :( 


Would a paper clay mixture actually help repair bisque?  Just water/slip?  




Pinch Pots

14 August 2014 - 10:20 AM

I am taking the porcelain e course and this week is all about pinch pots and refining them etc.  I have never made a pinch pot until this week.  I would love to see a thread with tips, tools, and discussion about making a proper pinch pot.  Pinching seems easy, refining it and making it even and smooth is not so much!  (to me anyways)
