#70767 Lets Do The Happy Dance

I once had a bisque kiln half full of pots that were too damp. They were also stacked on top of the dry pots. It was an interesting experience opening the kiln at ~150degC and seeing them jump around the kiln having some sort of gun battle, or maybe a popcorn party  :huh: They never actually took out any of the dry pots but they were all thick so could withstand the bouncing crowd above.

 

If you are sure it is not your work then I think drmyrtle has a good idea with stacking all your work together. Make a bisque protection box and keep firing it with you work inside  ;)

The best way to understand glazes is to buy some rocks and melt them

#70432 How Much Do You Stay Within Glaze Limits?

Posted by High Bridge Pottery on 21 November 2014 - 08:05 PM

I hadn't even thought about trying to get the same values but with different raw materials to see what happens. Good idea.

 

I am still waiting for my beautiful stoneware range. Right now it is blue, blue and probably blue. Haven't found anything with copper carbonate that I like, I have an OK iron rich glaze and then my colourants run out... Started playing with rutile which has brought me a lovely new blue :D




#70420 How Much Do You Stay Within Glaze Limits?

Posted by High Bridge Pottery on 21 November 2014 - 06:07 PM

Why are you stuck? There is always time to buy some rocks and melt them.

Somebody I know bought 1kg of glaze in dry format and it was £20 or something insane. I had to laugh when a 25kg was over £200 and they were calling it a bargain.

I did try commercial glaze once but never really liked them. They didn't work that well and I couldn't look at one part and think 'I can work with that' and drop other parts I did not like.

 

 

I will start looking at the limit formulas as more of industrial guidelines. I can see this cornish stone/whiting working well on the outside of some of my pieces with a lot more work.

 

It was funny how I went about trying to get inside the limits in 3 different ways by having 3 different recipes and they all came out a transparent, must be an ok glass though.

#70278 My First Kiln And First Firing

Posted by High Bridge Pottery on 20 November 2014 - 08:31 AM

I remember the good days when I could pick a glaze that would then be fired beautifully in a kiln by my tutor/technician   :wub:

Yea I am probably not the most economical with my movements but when I try and do it in less I end up going too thin. I have to sneak up on them  :ph34r:

 

I am only 24 so I wouldn't go comparing my hands with yours. I am sure your hands have many more stories to tell.
