  1. I use a 0.25 CF primarily: it holds 2 of these test tiles. I also use a 1.75CF Paragon that has 6500 watts. I use that for multiple tests, small pieces, and small batches of crystalline liner tiles. The 1.75 is my favorite, it has 3800 watts per CF: twice that of ordinary kilns.


  2. Mark:

     

    I can see the color orientations you are after. The color used to make/highlight the flowers is off: does not follow the overall theme. This color needs to follow what you have inside the cup: do not be afraid of a dark/deep. burgundy. The bottom ( yellow) would flow better with the silver/white color I am seeing around the flowers (highlights). The deep color of the handle and interior is more than enough intense color. So balance the piece with some coordinating pastels.

  3. You just cannot help yourself-can you? Even when you purposely try to deform a piece: you throw with uniform non-conformity. I know you did not use a measuring device or calibers: but notice how evenly spaced and concentric your rings are? Your eye for proportion, will just not allow your hands to distort.  :)

  4. Are you signing/stamping these pieces (logo)? If not, you need to start. You are making them today; but their voice will be the loudest decades from now. Transitional Art Noveau revisited: partly modern, but with historical references. Part whimsical, but still art. It is uniquely your voice: labeling it as such is required IMO. Good cobalt shifts BTW.


  5. I can understand that preference. It has that 1920-30"'s crock look to it. Give some consideration to some modern colors for the one on the left. Strictly as a point of selling, profits; the one on the left would also draw the modern crowd if done in monochromatic schemes.


  6. Congrats on the sale. Excellent piece to break the retail ice with. I like the height on that piece as well. Just figured out what I like it. Even though earthy tones were used: the shape is more modern; more proportionate. I know about trees; been hacking my way through the stoneware formulation jungle.


  7. The piece on the left works best for me. Grey / taupe is a tough color to incorporate into a pottery piece; even harder to blend to other colors. Interesting that you used the deepest color to break the color symmetry. Even more interesting, you did not use a straight line to do it!. 

    I visualize this piece as sweeping up from the bottom. So I wonder how the handles would look with the arch sweeping upward, instead of down? (convex instead of concave)
