  1. From the album: Handmade Clay Stamps

    These cube stamps are great space savers. Six in one.

  2. From the album: Handmade Clay Stamps

    This one started out as a mistake. I began to make a certain shape but the clay was too soft and distorted ... rather than scrap it and start over I created a stamp that makes a different impression with each side. Very fun! I used the stamp to create the design stamped in the clay.

    A little bowl full of texture! These are my favorites to make, by far.

  5. From the album: My nautical stuff

    I throw the goblets in 2 parts then assemble them. They are some of my favorite pieces to make.

    Bell Wip

    From the album: Works in progress

    Working on this little hand bell. It's thrown and painted with blue engobe then carved. It has a bit of high temp wire shoved into the high point of the bell which I will hang the ringer from.
  7. From the album: Texture

    This bowl was a bit of a surprise. The interior is suposed to be chartreuse! Luckly the steel blue color is beautiful! Black Mountain Clay with 3 coats of white Amaco Velvet Undeglaze, followed by 3 coats of chartreuse Amaco Velvet Underglaze before bisque firing. Then 3 coats of Amaco's zinc free clear fired to ^10. I also antiqued the outside with a cobalt oxide wash (which turns blue-black on the black mountain clay) to accent the texture. The texture was carved into thick walls while the clay was leather hard.

  8. From the album: Favorites

    Goblets are just plain fun to make. This is another of my signature patterns. I love the combination of glazes and engobes on this piece. Wheel thrown, with engobe and sgraffito. Commercial glazes, fired to ^6 electric.

  9. From the album: Favorites

    I do a lot of this nautical wave pattern on my pieces. this was the first cup I stacked 2 of the patterns on top of each other. I actually meant to glaze the interior with a different liner but I really liked the combination anyway after it was fired. applied engobe, with sgraffito, commercial glazes. Fired ^6 electric.

  11. I've always been a fan of texture when working with slabs, and I started hand-building to create more of an "organic" feel to my work. With slab rollers, the clay gets a canvas texture imprinted, and most people smooth it out. For me, sometimes I leave it, or I remove it and add a different texture, such as burlap or something non-organic. I was reading this (old) article today about Elephant Ceramics, and notice some of the comments from potters who said that her work looks "unfinished" because of the texture, and also that the edges of her work looks too sharp. I've always loved her work, and was curious what other serious potters thought of the texture (whether or not it was from a slab-roller, which I'm not sure if it was), and also of her style of work in general. Here's the link to the article: http://www.designsponge.com/2011/09/whats-in-your-toolbox-michele-michael.html
  12. Hi guys, Quick questions about porcelain- I'm making some small vessels from slip cast porcelain, and really loving the soft matte look they get after being fired to bisque (1000celsius). Unfortunately when I fire to 1200celsius to finish them they get a rough sandy feel to them (feels like nails on a chalkboard) and lose the subtlely of colors/shrink etc. My main issue is the sandy surface and I'm wondering if there are any issues with selling little planters as bisque? Is this generally frowned upon? The bisque doesnt leak water as such but it kind of bleeds through a little in spots but i could make it thicker. OR- would it be better using another sort of clay that doesnt warp/shrink/and doesnt have that same rough texture? If so can someone recommend any? Plain earthenware? I would ideally like to make foodsafe versions eventually too which requires glaze obviously. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Jack
  13. I have lots of groggy clay. I have stopped using sponges on it. I have started using a rib to smooth out what the rib can access on the pot. Even so, my pots have rough spots. They are cone 5 stoneware and thoroughly glazed and sealed, but grainy in places. People want to buy my mugs but I am nervous about selling them when they are not perfectly smooth. Is this considered substandard? What is your take on this?
