  1. Thanks Babs - someone else obviously liked it too...it sold within a few days of being on display. It’s like meeting up with old friends being back on CAD!
  2. Thank you - it was all very experimental, but I did mix the glazes myself, so hopefully can reproduce the results when I fire my own raku kiln I think the tile is my favourite too Johnny.

  11. Haven’t visited CAD for a long time. Interestingly, everyone picks this bowl up and it gets lots of positive comments, but not sold! Have made a few in porcelain more recently, which I really love. Have tried to upload photo, not sure if it’s there yet.

    What's this gorgeous glaze? I love it. Is it bought or have you mixed it yourself?
  19. Yes that's about it Roberta. Stencils with the motif being the negative part (the holes). This one was actually some flower wrapping paper that was holey all over and I cut small pieces, laid them around the bowl, cut small pieces of tissue transfer paper, laid on top, sprayed lightly with water, rubbed them gently with a rubber tipped tool, left to dry then peeled off and removed the stencil. The creamer stencil I made myself on a Silhouette stencil machine, cut from thin plastic film (thin filing wallets) as it's flexible enough for the curves. Same process. Lots of potential and given the price of stencils - quite a good use of them.

    After reading CAD article about making your own transfers, I tried this using a rubber stamp with stain & frit 50:50 mix. Stamped on to tissue paper, applied to leather hard clay. Bisqued to 1000oC. Dipped in transparent glaze & fired to 1100oC in an electric kiln.
