  1. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this effect: website is here: http://www.mostra-moustiers.com/fr/galerie-la-mostra/aire-goutt-allikmets.php Is this a look achieved through a glaze that cracks/crazes excessively, or what else is happening here?! I've seen a few vessels with this type of effect recently and I think it looks great, but how exactly is it done?!
  2. Hi, does anyone have any advice on how to ensure a glaze is food safe and doesn't leach anything harmful? I know that it's possible to send samples off to get tested, but for a hobby potter this is not too useful since even if I know that one batch is OK, I can't adequately ensure that I'll meet exactly the same conditions for a subsequent batch and I can't keep sending stuff off for testing, it would get too expensive. So far I've just avoided the problem by only making ornamental ware, but it would be quite nice to make a few mugs that could be used at home. Are there any glazes th
  3. Hello everyone! I am stumped on this issue and was wondering if anyone had any insight or advice on this. We opened our soda kiln a couple weeks ago and I had a problem with my work. I fired 64 pcs, most of which was Rods Bod clay body which also had some Red Iron Oxide slip decoration on it. I used Penn State Shino that I mixed the day that I glazed. 60% of it had major shivering! The glaze was just crumbling off and some thicker areas coming off in large pieces, leaving a grey stony finish behind. Such a bummer! See video here: https://youtu.be/0cbd0eXvYII Some things to note in t
  4. I am scheduled to take my very first pottery class next week and I have no experience in ceramics. My short term goal is to make one pot that I will use at home in my oven for cooking purposes. When i was growing up back in Greece, I remember my mom using such a pot and I want to make one just like it. Is there a special glaze and/or process that I need to use for this? I presume that after the baking the clay pot is porous and cannot be used without some sort of an additional step that will seal it. Any ideas?
  5. Hey gang! I'm curious if there is a way to achieve the look of MG2 over soldate 60 - that cool speckled look, at cone 6 in an electric kiln? I love the look and miss making it, and would love to recreate it at home if possible. Thanks!!
  6. I have this lovely off white glaze c6 that I've been using for awhile but its too soft. It will mar slightly with a knife. I'm not very strong in glaze calc - I"ve messed around with some other fluxes but haven't gotten any results for a better melt. I fire to c6 via the programmed firing with a half hour controlled cool down to 2130 on my Skutt kiln. I would love any advice on getting a better melt with this glaze without effecting the color and finish too much. OFF WHITE Neph Sy 59 Dolemite 19.5 Zircopax 14.7 OM4 Ball 2.4 RIO .9 G
  7. Fellow potters, I need your expertise: I'm part of a potter's guild and we're in the process of moving everything to a new space - our kilns, our chemicals, our tools, and our already-mixed glazes. Most of it is pretty easy (in theory) but I am hoping some of you might have some insight on moving glaze buckets - or at least making them a little lighter and hopefully easier to move. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to getting the water out of a glaze, relatively quickly, without compromising the integrity of the mixture? Just pouring out the top layer of water seems like it might a
  8. Hello, I have been making terracotta tiles & glazing them in the Majolica style. The tiles were bisque fired to 950 and the 3 coats of white glaze applied to tiles with decoration painted on the surface. The white glaze was a white glossy glaze not a Tin Glaze. Pin holing was apparent on surface of glaze before firing and remained after firing to 1080. Anybody got any advice please ?
  9. Hello all! I was researching opacifiers today and came across the page for Titanium Dioxide on Digitalfire.com (https://digitalfire.com/4sight/material/titanium_dioxide_1644.html). It says that you can spray it over a glaze to achieve variegated effects, like a crystalline tea-dust look. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this and could give me some tips for dry material to water ratio, or any other knowledge that may come in handy. I have never sprayed any glazes before. Thanks much!
  10. Hi All, I wonder if anyone can identify this mug please? More importantly can anyone tell me what glaze this is? where to buy some more or less the same? what temp to fire at to get this look? or if not how to achieve this look. It has a real silky feel, sort of a matt satin glaze I think. Any info would be good. Thank you in advance.
  11. Hi, I am wanting to get a glaze like the image shown on this mug. Anyone know what it is and how to get it please? The middle part I assume is oxide? and the blue / pale white rings, maybe another glaze? thank you, any advice appreciated. Don

    I made 4 similar mugs from the recycled clay and iron filings in a glaze called moonlight. I have learned that a little goes a long way for the iron filings, and next time I think I will use less. Most of the filings came through on the inside of the cup, rusting slightly but covered thinly by glaze. Does any one else have experience with using too much iron filings? Do you feel it causes any safety hazards to the average human?

    Turquoise stone and white matte ^6 ox on calico dark red clay. A couple very wonky vases that developed decent sized cracks from uneven drying, this was one of the first things I made after taking a hiatus of 3 years from clay, be gentle! I needed to keep a few unsatisfactory pieces to try my experiments. I am totally head over heals in love with the color combo, but am very sad all the pieces developed pin holes on them... I talked to the professor and she is going to go over how to avoid that next time and keep my work together as to have a more consistent firing.

    Moonlight glaze with cobalt splatter ^6 ox on bone white clay.This was one of the first mugs I made this semester. I have gotten some great feed-back regarding smoothing the lip, foot, and handle. This was an experiment that did not produce the results I was looking for, I had splattered cobalt stain on top of the moonlight (that I later found out had cobalt in it) and the resulting texture is very subtle. I probably will not stick with this glaze, it looked better on the test tile... :rolls eyes:

    This whole bowl was glazed in sun valley. The outside ran quite a bit onto the foot and cookie it was resting on, but the inside result was very interesting. It breaks in a light blue, and can have a whole range of color changes as it melts. In 2013 this was the largest bowl I had managed to throw, it was made out of 10 pounds of clay. Deciding on if I want to use this glaze again on future works, as it is very unpredictable and runny.

    Love dragons and have fun making yarn bowls. So did a dragon's egg yarn bowl. Lots of fun since it is a bit unique and creates a nice surface to play with glaze combos. Amaco salt buff under celadon sky.

    My newest box. I wanted to see how much control I could maintain over my glazes so l drew stripes of varying thicknesses on the box then glazed each a different color. I then used some of my laser transfer designs and each color of stripe got a different pattern. The ribbon I rolled a scrolled pattern into while still wet then twisted and attached it so that it could be used as a handle. With all the color on the outside I went with a simple white interior glaze.

    This was an experiment to see if I could fire a diamond shaped box with the glaze going around all sides. I did it! The stand is separate from the box but the way I designed the triangle base makes the box fit really snuggle into it. This is also the first time I used a mason stain wash instead of underglaze for the gold background on the box. The modern flowers are an underglaze transfer. The base is a simple RIO wash.

    The glaze is the standard silky white crystalline glaze I've been using a lot lately. The center of the bowl was sprayed with a pale green crystalline glaze to define the texture of the fluted pattern carved lightly into the porcelain. For unknown reasons, this sprayed on glaze fumed the white rim of the bowl to an almost fluorescent pink, and crystallized pink flowed down and collected in the center of the bowl

    This is a one-piece hanging planter, a form I made in the hundreds, back in the day. The water catcher is thrown onto the bottom of the planter as a part of the trimming process. It's planted with aloe, and is a gift to my son the chef, who sometimes collects burns in the course of working.

    These have no actual granite in them, but the glaze has a granite-like quality, with green specks on a blue background, a smooth matte surface, and a micaceous sparkle in the sun.
  25. I have bought some duncan covercoat underglazes and fired some testtiles with 2 types of clear glaze over them, a matte and a glossy. I make my own glazes and used food-safe cone 6 glazes I have not yet had problems with. The colours have dissapeared and changed after firing. What is a good recipe for a cone 6 matte - and a cone 6 glossy glaze for over these underglazes? Marlies
