Potters crazy?  Not by a longshot.

 

Everyone else.  Absolutely.

Vase in foreground is Standard 266 clay (dark brown) with white Bringle slip brushed on and wiped off of from high spots.  Soda ash wash applied before firing.  Feldspar inclusions.  Cone 6, oxidation.  Rear vase is Laguna Dark Brown clay, wood fired, cone 10, reduction. 

 

Those are beautiful vases. I love the dark look on the top part of the wood fired one. Brilliant.

 

It sat behind the stack and on the floor between the two chambers; the top part got the flame, the bottom part did not as the flames exited the flue between the wood and soda chambers at that height.  All a matter of placement.

The new boxes are supposed to be more environmentally friendly by using less cardboard and are supposed to make it easier to remove bags of clay.


In Topic: Glazing Mugs With A Different Glaze On The Handle

His work is soda fired.  Likely using a combination of flashing slips and slips formulated for soda/salt/wood firing.  Fair amount of trial and error to get right combinations and to get the soda application down.  If he once fires, the handle could be attached after the body of the mug is slipped.  The soda gives the sheen/gloss.  Very nice work.
