  1. thank you chris your website was very helpful and you are right about the underglazes and coloring it was extremely difficult to work with. and i am planning of getting some of the stain as oxides to further fuel my exploration desires for ceramics.
  2. My teacher just recently got new underglazes from amaco because the previous year's set of velvet underglazes were either dried out or all thick and goopy. she was about to throw them away, but before she could i stopped her and offered to take them off her hands. and before i go all out in my explorations i was wondering if it is possible to add dried underglaze to clay to color it. I ask because if not it would be a waste of both time and clay. my goal is to make agateware in the end.
  3. I live in central Texas a little ways out of Austin. And thank you Surubee it sounds awesome and i am really grateful for the helpful information that this community has provided me. What really got me interested in black clay is watching videos of Japanese artists mixing black clay with other clays, simply because of its unique property of picking up small details. again thank you for all of the support.
  4. I am fairly new to this group of what seems to be very helpful people and i would like to ask for some help. I live in a place that has an abundant supply of natural black clay. I have no problem with refining the clay, but I am open to helpful tips and tricks, but i am not sure how to go about testing it in the kiln to determine if it is a low-fire or high-fire clay. If any of you can shed some light on this topic i would be grateful.
