Plates. Hate plates. Easy to throw, but take up so much room in the studio and take forever to dry slowly to avoid problems.

My Laguna B-mix 5 plates once cracked kind of like this (only one jagged crack down the middle) when I peaked in the kiln too early and let in a blast of cool air. I heard them go right then and realized that I'd just done a really dumb thing. Did yours cool too quickly, even though the error said "failure to cool"?


In Topic: Inspiration, Appropriation Or Downright Copying?

I often try to isolate the reason I am drawn to an inspiring work. Is it the use of contrasting glazes? A detail, or maybe an unusual twist on a traditional form? Then once I think I've got the element that I am responding to, I try to think of a way to try out the same idea but in my own style using my repertoire of forms, colors and techniques. Or, I just enjoy the inspiring work without feeling like I have to try it myself. I love lots of salt and Woodford ware, but I don't have the facilities to do that right now, so I just enjoy the work I love and get generally inspired to go into the studio and do what I do, which is much much different!

Sorry for the double post. Stupid cell phone

True - a drape mold would work to make that plate, but the same texture is on other pots that are more verticals (look on his website under "work")...?
