  1. The review in the Crafts Magazine pointed out that even though it was academic, it was also very witty and not heavy at all. I am also sometimes wary of those kinds of essays. I love reading thought provoking essays but sometimes it's just too academic. Thank you all for pointing out cheaper versions, I'll try to get my hands on one
  2. Hello all, I was reading the Crafts Magazine from last March and they mentioned this new book, The Ceramic Reader by Kevin Petrie (Bloomsbury publishing). They praised it really highly in their review but it's quite an investment. The printed version is over 100$ and the ebook version over 30$. It is supposed to contain lots of essays on ceramics in general from a wide range of angles. So I wanted to know if anyone here had read it or at least flipped through, and what your thoughts are on it in general? Thank you
  3. Wow I love the shapes and these bright colours, gorgeous! Is it glaze?
  4. Beautiful; I love this series you made, very delicate patterns
  5. Wow, this one is really beautiful! I love the colours you picked!
  6. If you use a mould, I would not slipcast it, but rather roll a slab of clay and press it gently inside the mould. As for making the mould, just like Evelyne said, bisquing the prototype should work better. Remember to make it bigger and also, to use soap on the piece before you pour the plaster!
  7. The mishima technique on bisque ware is a bit easier as the carving can't get smudged or anything. If the colour is liquid enough, it should flow really easily into the carving (you do the print on raw clay of course, and then bisque-fire). Then you can always sand the excess without messing up everything too much There's a potter who does something similar as what you want, but with leaves. Her brand name is Kanimbla Clay, maybe you can try to contact her, see how she does it?
  8. Aaaah Loreena McKenitt is great, she has such a wonderful voice!! I can't work with music with lyrics, otherwise I'll listen to what they sing instead of working. So I go for instrumental music. A friend made me discover Ludovico Einaudi recently, I love it. Or a good Apocalyptica. I wish I could listen to my favorite bands but I know I'd spend more time singing along than working
  9. I've always had credit cards (I guess debit actually) with 4-digit pins as I am from Europe and I think it's a good thing it's coming to the States as well. Just having to sign a piece of paper is in no way secure to me and I never feel comfortable using my card in the States: anyone can copy your signature but it's a bit harder to guess your Pin Code. I've had a few Americans customers coming to the store I was working on in Canada, and complaining about how complicated it was to use a credit card in Canada (yes they have pin-codes as well) but I think this lazyness is totally unsecure. So I'
  10. And what about you press the feather onto the clay, bisque-fire it, and then apply the colour? There wouldn't be any risk of messing up the print you made
  11. yep, i find it a lot easier to scrape off the excess when it's dry. You can sand it to get really precise results
  12. Did a 5 days workshop with Anima Roos, learning printing techniques on ceramics, and my head is full of possibilities! Can't wait to try them all again

    Tea Bowls

    These are pretty small actually, maybe 8cm wide at the top and 6cm high or so. They are fired at cone 10 in reduction
  14. If you're interested in porcelain, you might want to have a look at paper clay. It has a very interesting texture and can be joined without any slip, just by pressing (I've never tried but I've heard it works really well). You can also make your own using scrap porcelain and adding toilet paper to it. The only thing is, I think it's only High-fire clay, I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.

    I used underglazes and then carved the pattern. Only the inside is glazed
