  1. 3 things. You can see barren white patches, and areas where the glazed is pooled: which indicates it is over-fired.

    The coarse texture of the clay indicates that the clay is under-fired: immature. The slight off set where the crack is also suggest that the clay was immature.

    The uneven texture where the glaze did shiver off also indicates a bond failure between the clay and glaze: which also means the flux level in the clay is way off.

  2. The concentric crack on the bottom piece is aligned where this piece made contact with the kiln shelf. The exposed area of this piece cooled at a different rate than where it made contact with a shelf. You need to control the cooling to correct it, or put wadding under it to even out the heat.

  3. I have been coming back to this cup for the last three days. I have kept going back and forth trying to decide if the banding fits the over-all look of the piece. After three days of weighing it over: it fits. Actually, it fits very well. This color combination is rather new to me: took me awhile to understand your aesthetic. Actually, beveling the upper and lower bands around it was another clever trick to reflect light.. Bravo to you!

  4. Still trying to figure out who influenced you artistically? I see abstract in some and impressionist in others. There is more technical skills required here than meets the eye. What size tile do you typically use? Have you done or considered doing murals? I could easily see mural work with this technique. You have a highly individualized voice and expression: which I do find appealing.
