  1. I am very much a beginner... I’ve attended Slab pottery sessions for the past year or so and love it. To the extent where I’ve been asked to make and sell for a local shop as she saw the pieces I was making via social media. I love the process of it all but have no real knowledge in terms of owning my own kiln and the firing process. ive attempted to look online but it’s all over my head as I’m not sure what to even begin looking for. I understand kilns are very expensive but are there any suitable for people fairly new to ceramics??
  2. I purchased a beautiful mug just recently and I am trying to figure out the artists name but I am having trouble. It looks to be Hcbie Ltcbie Locbie Hobie .... I have done an image search and can't seem to find anything! https://imgur.com/5blvEpN https://imgur.com/NidHIOW
  3. Hi ! I am so glad I found this forum. I am trying to kick start a ceramic club. Here at our facility we have our Kiln room that is fully equipped, completed with endless amount of supplies. I really hit the mother load, however this room has not been utilized in ten(10) years or so. We have EVERYTHING, but nothing has an expiration date. I've been into ceramics since high school, unfortunately this is just something I am not familiar with. Most of our supplies are either Mayco or Duncan Bisque, I might call customer service to check with them about their under glazes, glazes, paints and such.
  4. On a recent Clayflix tutorial by Lisa Naples she mentioned she fires her earthenware to cone 1 or 2, which reduces the water absorption rate by a huge amount and renders the clay almost vitreous. Does anyone have experience with this and, if so, what clay do you use?

    Pretty self-explanatory.

  6. Hello all, Just inherited a 13litre tub of clear earthenware glaze (duncan). I'm not a studio potter, but a sculptor (ceramic). I'm dreaming of making lots of new glazes from this tub. So I'm looking for a list of additives ie. Silicon carbide to make it foam and thicken, Zirconium oxide to whiten, Tin to blush. I'll be adding oxides and stains. But I want more info on new weird behaving ingredients to test. Any other ideas folks? Thank you all for your expertise, your feedback has helped me learn so much : )
  7. Does anyone have any input on why I’m getting intermittent peeling slip on my cone 1 red earthenware pots? It happens on a handful of pots from each firing. Typically, it’s on the edges of a pot (mostly near the rim). I’ve tried reformulating my slip recipe and am now using deflocculated slip (Martina Lantin’s recipe). My colors are from the base recipe with the addition of mason stains. I use Laguna red earthenware clay and fire to cone 1. I hoped the deflocculated slip would solve the problem since the water content is so low, but it hasn’t. I’m ready to give up! It’s so frustrating. I’d gr
  8. Good Morning everyone, I'm considering moving from stoneware to earthenware and I would like your reasons for your throwing preference. Thank you and have a good Wednesday
  9. Hello, Recently I did a cone 03 glaze fire (fast firing) for earthenware pieces and during the firing at 1833 degrees F, the kiln received an error code for e-1. The firing was intended to reach 1987F but was not able to reach this temp due to the error. The effects were pinholing and glaze which had not matured, due to being underfired. I would like to re fire these pieces again, but am uncertain as to what temp will help the glaze mature. Earthenware, I was told by my instructor will crack if put through a second firing at the same temp (cone 03). Does anyone have an idea as to what t

    The final result of my first animal head sculpture. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out--as you can imagine, I was sweating when this piece was in the kiln!! My fella, its intended and current owner, was extremely happy when he got it for Christmas. <3 Sculpted from Clay Art Center (of Tacoma)'s Xtra White lowfire earthenware, painted with Amaco, Mayco, Duncan, and Clay Art Center underglaze, fired to ^03.

  13. From the album: 2016

    Thrown bowls, cut at right angles to the rim. Thin slabs textured with bark, stamps, shells etc. - pieces attached to back part with front cut edge eased forwards to emphasise the contrast between the organic and engineered. Oxide washes applied at dry greenware stage, fixed in the bisqued firing. 3 back pieces were dipped in transparent glaze, front one dipped in tin white (to cover a repair that fired a different colour!). Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.
  14. From the album: 2016

    3 creamers with cobalt tissue transfers applied through a home made stencil with transparent glaze over. Wedding favours - 2 test pieces (120 in total) glazed with Mayco Stroke and Coat. Individual name tags to be attached using teal ribbon. These are for my niece (a labour of love) - would never be cost effective as a commercial item, unless someone had money to throw away! Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.

    Here he is, Mr. Inlé himself. I could not, for the LIFE of me, get a good photo of him. No picture I took does this piece any justice... he's one of my favorites. Terracotta with white slip, ^03. Holds 15oz.

    This is Chewbacca, another bun who loves his blankies. He sadly passed away in late 2014, at the age of eleven. The piece is a wide-rimmed 10" bowl, fired to ^03.
