In Topic: Glazing 101 Question

Yesterday, 08:57 AM

There will be changes on refires, what they will be only testing will determine.

I have heard that potter's choice have different firing schedules for different glazes, it might be best to contact them about details on firing with different clays.

Why not make up a bunch of test tiles that can go into every firing so that you can build a library of glazes and effects as well as refire tiles.

Yes you can add a glaze over a fired glaze and there again testing will give you info about how your kiln fires.

If the bisk is indeed vitrifying the clay then the glaze firing could have the stress problems of a refire. Talk to the clay mfg and find out if this might be the case.

A test would be to put an unglazed bisk piece through the glaze firing and see if anything happens.

If it cracked or exploded, the clay is the issue, otherwise it's the glaze or the method of glazing

Randal Anderson's work is very interesting as is his photography of his work. Have you ever noticed if you take a rather common pot and place it in an interesting setting, it can take on the life of the setting it's in

I bet they might share some for a pot to go in the boardroom
