  1. Hi Everyone, I'm so inspired by the posts in this forum. I've never worked with ceramic, but have been considering it recently. I've found this picture below. I would like to make a similar item using a piece of crochet or a doily. I suppose I would need to work with high firing porcelain clay and need a high firing temperature furnace. I can't wait to experiment I have two questions - Is there a book or an online course that can teach me the basics for working with porcelain clay, materials tools and process? What temperature furnace I need to purchase?

  3. Hello. I have a hige problem with bubbles in my work. It is slipcasted porcelain in a closed mould. Does anyone know what the problem could be? The air shouldn't be trapped as there are enough holes in the highest places. The bubbles are inside and on top and bottom of the casting. I would really,really appreciate any help!! Anna
  4. I have made my own black stains with the same bodies of porcelain I’m using ( Audrey Blackman & Parien )They fire up to 1240 degs ( one fire ) My problem is the stained surface ALL have blisters Any suggestions on how I can resolve this issue ? Is there mayb something else I should be adding aside from porcelain body stain and water ( which I then pass through a mesh sieve) Commercial stains seem fine Would appreciate input Kind regards Nicky
  5. I took ceramic classes in college and loved it. I quickly became good on the wheel and that is my primary focus, however I also sculpt. I had the pleasure of working with multiple different clays. I primarily used stoneware and porcelain but occasionally earthenware as well. The stoneware I fired at cone 10 and 6 and porcelain at cone 10. I would consider myself a beginner as far as mixing the clays because I never had to do it and all the clay was made for us. I would like to mix my own clay bodies at home because I assume it’s cheaper than buying pre-made clay and I also will have
  6. Hello, I am trying to build ceramic baskets using extremely fine coils of porcelain, and wanted to try making porcelain paper clay so that I can work as fine as I would like to. I am wondering where I can find the best recipe to make it, and what paper pulp I should use. Would it also be beneficial for me to add porcelain grog/molochite to the mix? Many thanks!
  7. Hi, I have a lot of difficulty with wedging in large amounts of clay. I want to mix stains into 5 lb. increments of porcelain. Any suggestions on type of machine. Would A dough mixer or pug mill work. I’m not looking to spend a lot. It’s just for my home studio. Thanks, Liz

  9. Hi, I’m new to the world of clay so forgive me if this sounds like a silly question. I have a pot I’d like to refire (it’s gone through a cone 10 firing ) it did not have glaze, just a white clay only slip and a bit of oxides. I want to add more slip and oxides and refire but would it be okay to apply a clear glaze on top of an unfired slip?
  10. Hello! I was hoping to have a discussion with anyone who may be more educated/experienced on the topic of porcelain warpage. Primarily what I am wondering is - is it possible to make porcelain wares without any warpage at all through glaze fire? I have tried a number of different drying and firing techniques but it seems impossible to achieve a perfect net form. I am slip casting, so my wares have very consistent wall widths. I have read time and time again that the design of the object dictates warpage (along with drying/firing techniques), but I can't really think of a design tha
  11. Dear everyone, I am quite new to a slip casting technique. Have made several plaster molds for casting porcelain. And had some success, but recently I have noticed that some of the greenware gets tiny pinholes and then, (because some cups doesnt have it) there are SOMETIMES also pinholes on the glaze. If i got it right, those tiny pinholes are the result of air bubbles or pieces of dust in the casting slip, right? But i wonder, do those pinholes influence the glaze? I am a bit confused, because some of the porcelain cups are not having those pinholes on the glaze and some do have. The thi
  12. Hello folks! I am a porcelain painter in Brazil! I work with china paint for 25 years... This week I lost seven plates in my kiln. Six at a time (Second firing) and another one in another time (fist firing) ... have lost some, rarely, very uncomon one piece or 2 but at this time I am very anxious because is the There have been losses of dishes a few times but so this is the first time ...I'm scared because it's a big order, the biggest one I've ever taken and this has never happened to me ...What could have been?Exaggerated load of the oven? I've done other burns like this and there's neve

  14. Not sure if this is the right place for this. If it is, then admins can whoosh wherever is best. I have been using a dark clay body, which I love, but have a bit of fatigue in working with the dark color....I need to work with lighter colors a bit, even if I work in two different clays. I have done some small stuff with Coleman's porcelain and it was okay. I have tried Dave's and fought with it the whole time. I would like to find a nice porcelain that works for me. I am looking for some reviews of porcelain or thoughts on various clay body. I do some mild altering of thro
  15. I have a bucket of old porcelain casting slip that I made a couple of years ago, and I'm wondering if I can reconstitute it. It's pretty chunky, it was originally deflocculated with Darvan 811. Can I get it back to a proper consistency for casting? Should I add more Darvan? Also, does Darvan expire?
  16. Hi - I am using porcelain for the first time, and while I knew it was persnickety, I am having an unexpected problem: it keeps breaking while I'm glazing. While one pot was a very thin (too thin probably) vase, I have had multiple cup handles break in the middle or away from their attachment site. The handles were not pulled - they were coils that I smoothed with a sponge, so I wondered if maybe the clay was not compressed enough? The handles were relatively small but the cup was small and thin, too, so I don't think that is the problem. It is a cone 10 Narra porcelain, and they were bisqu
  17. Hi all Have just flipped through the last 20 forum pages (eyes hurt!) looking for a PDF paper some very clever soul once posted last year on making your own ceramic tape sheets of porcelain, a 'homemade' version of Keraflex sheets......of course cannot find it! Have used the Search option with several combinations of words but still no luck! The primary binder was PVA glue that gave the thin translucent porcelain its plastic flexibility but with a bit of water would soften the glue base allowing complex shapes to be formed from the sheets. Much, much cheaper than buying Keraflex no ma

  20. From the album: LeeU Hidden Mask Series

    This piece was fired in the anagama kiln at the Sharon Art Center in NH. It is porcelain with a celedon glaze on the facial planes and a temmoku on the stamped area. The orange on the right side is on unglazed clay and is an attribute of the firing.
