#11656 pottery studio wish list

Posted by Mossyrock on 02 January 2012 - 09:14 AM

While we're discussing 'dream' studios, I would add an area with a photo cube set up to take good pictures for posting on websites and making postcards and an area for packing pottery for shipment to galleries or customers. Posted Image

#6280 Majolica Base White Glaze: Need Help

Posted by Mossyrock on 05 May 2011 - 09:13 AM

I have been fortunate to attend hands-on workshops presented by both Linda Arbuckle and Matthias Ostermann (deceased) on majolica. Both are excellent although very different styles. Check out Matthias' book "The New Maiolica - Contemporary Approaches to Color and Technique" for a detailed explanation of his methods (which is like working with pastels and blending colors with your fingers and results in a more painterly effect than the Arbuckle method), glaze recipes, and color mixing. I use both methods depending on the piece. Matthias' is wonderful for tiles and flat surfaces.....Arbuckle's is better for cups, bowls, etc.
