  1. Hi! I’ve recently been doing a lot of experiments with clay deposits I’ve found as well as other found materials used in clay or glazed. I’ve been doing a lot of testing with wedging a lot of coarse granite into my clay. It makes it rough to throw with but my hands are tough enough it doesn’t bother me. I’ve usually been applying a found quartz and wood ash glaze that I’ve formulated to these pieces at cone 6 (lots of GB). The glaze gives a nice amber finish and seems to be helping the granite flux as it runs a bit giving nice variation, colour, and texture. My current test are going to include wedging the granite into a clay I found that can be fired up to cone 6 and I’m excited for these results. Does anyone have any tips regarding granite being added to clay, good glaze combos with found rough granite filled textures, other good experiments with found materials, etc?? Thanks! Matt
  2. Yes, I know what you mean and I've done some tests doing that, but I'm trying to get specifically the flashing effects. I've sprayed ash and achieved those effects but it's the flashing specifically I'm looking for now. I guess I'm kind of trying to force flashing on a pot.
  3. I found some articles saying to spray a mix of water and soda onto the pot. Is this what you mean? Should I spray it over a flashing slip?

  5. I'm doing some tests and research into trying to achieve wood kiln like effects in electric kilns at cone 6. Tests with ash glazes, flashing slips, and added wood ash to name a few of the things I'm testing. Does anyone have any information or a starting point on how I would be able to achieve flashing effects similar to a wood or soda/salt kiln firing in a cone 6 electric kiln? Thanks!
