There has beed a few posts on these subjects lately
Here's some of all three from my archives -this porcelain slip work was done in 1974 thru1976
The Chamberlain's is salt fired and fumed-one of a kind
The sailing ship is on a washed out celedon glaze with cobalt decal-its a one of a few I did in 1976 for a art show-I was an ocean guy way back then as well-Did I mention my 6 month sailing trip on a schooner around the horn?? to settle in California from Nashua New Hampshire?
The old crow is a whiskey flask with gold luster-I made about a dozen of these and sold most of them -I still have 4.
Now many may ask what about the lawsuits from old crow bottle as i used one of their bottles and after the 30 year litigation I had to sell all my belongings
except for a small electric test kiln which I had in my backpack for a few years getting back on my feet. Once I moved into a dump with power I slowly made more old crow flasks and was able to slowing get back into the ceramic business. The rest is history
speaking of history somewhere in my stuff I have old unused decals from those early 70s years like these. The ships I did for the 4th of July 1976 show as it was our 200th anniversary for you youngsters who recall that date.
The decals and luster where all in the cone 017 range
The fuming was done in a salt kiln at collage- dull red color range on cool down, Back then as it was before digital pyrometers where around.
At this time I was throwing like crazy and in school learning as many techniques as I could get my hands on.Mold making and casting was just one of them.
