  1. I have 2 6-week online workshops coming up on www.teachinart.com Sept 12-Oct 22 and Nov. 8 -Dec . 17
  2. Yes I am teaching Alternative firings using a raku kiln: includes foil sagger, ceramic sagger, obvara and latex resist in raku. Thanks for mentioning my class, Hulk. Other teachers include Antionette, Mark Goudy, Connie Christianson, Paul Lewing, and more https://www.teachinart.com
  3. I'd just refire it in raku. Maybe fire it 25-50 degrees hotter. It would not be a good idea to cover it wit a ^6 glaze. Marcia
  4. hi LoneWolf, I have been doing Raku since 1 968 when Paul Soldner gave a workshop to local colleges in Phila. I also served on the technical staff for Ceramics Monthly focus on Raku. What type of research are you working on? Marcia
  5. ^6 for functional work. Low fire for experimenting with alternative firings. I am moving my soluble salts to ^6 in the near future with a glaze. Meanwhile, using a small amount of earthenware for a pit firing coming up in may with friends. Marcia
  6. Another note, while tapping the plaster you can use a spray bottle of diluted alcohol t break the surface tension of air bubbles as it is setting up. keep tapping until you don't have anymore bubbles surfacing. Marcia
  7. you can do it with a metal tine and 6 layers of toilet paper around the piece. Match the size of the can to fit the piece if possible. Bisque the piece to Cone 08. Don't fire much hotter than 950F.
  8. I use cobalt sulphate for the base and calcium chloride flakes for the dots.
  9. I use ball clay terra sig. I use a process I learned in Italy from Paola Parenetti. https://ceramicartsnetwork.org/daily/firing-techniques/raku-firing/super-quick-terra-sig-and-horsehair-and-feather-raku/
  10. https://alclayvirtual2021.com/?fbclid=IwAR20mRtcfayzzFnbw-BCQ4igFfyvySAgYPrRStbDyzqNX4ZqdR0sqq9LlOg 7 presenters will give a zoom prerecorded presentation and then be available for live Q and A.
  11. Marc Ward plumbed my burners. 2 tanks per burner. I fire with 2 burners on my large raku kiln. The two tanks share one regulator. No freezing. Inset my regular at 5 lbs pressure maximum. I added a photo I think in the next post. Marcia
  12. experiments in alternative firing techniques, foil saggar firing, Obvara firing, ceramic saggar firing
  13. From the album: saggar, horse hair, feathers, foil saggars, Obvara
