Attempt At The Vintage Look

17 April 2016 - 10:04 PM

I just finished this plate.  I wanted an old or vintage look as if it were from the turn of the century.  The clay is a buff colored and reclaimed, cone 5 reduction.  Barnard's slip was applied to the greenware with a mild sgraffito patterned. Licorice black was applied in the crevices then and a local clay glaze was applied to the piece. 


Does it look vintage to you?

Is it successful?

Ignition Transformer Questions

Does anyone know if I can connect two spark plugs to one ignition transformer or will it only work with one spark plug?  I have one transformer and two burners.


Any ideas?
