  1. I am interested in Your input... I want to tile my bathroom myself, using tiles I created with molds. So the tiles created MUST be WATER PROOF! Firing the green ware using a home kiln, using my 110v house hold run wiring. Finally after firing to bisque, glazing to fire. I live in a townhouse so extra venting or drilling is not possible. I know this venture is going to take forever unless Covid takes me. What kind of kiln? How and why. I use to help my mom when she use to do ceramics. Way back with cones and giant kilns. So not what I want nor need
  2. Hello everyone, I'm recently feeling very passionate about ceramics both as a medium of art and as a path of business. I used to do painting. I actually studied painting (BA) at university and Theory of Art (MA). However, being away from studio art for about 10 years ( just being into graphic design for living at a junior level), I'm considering to get back on the track. Running my own studio and creating art is becoming my dream once again, at the age of 34. Do you see any chance that I can improve in this field? Is it too late for me to begin from the zero ? How long does it take to learn the adequate techniques? I really appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello to everyone! My name is Giulia, and I am a recent BFA graduate from ABAC, Italy. I studied sculpture and learn how to work with tough materials (marble, wood etc…) but now I would like to study more about ceramic. I have academic knowledge about the material and learn by myself how to use a pottery wheel. I am looking for some sort of opportunity such as an apprenticeship, assistant ship, internship, or other studio/workshop help. I would prefer to stay in Europe and to be more specific on the Netherlands... Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? It doesn't matter if the position is paid I just want to learn more. Thank you all, Giulia
  4. I just got a new ceramic gnome pipe and want to paint it but am unsure what paints are safe to use on smoking pipes due to heat and inhaling through it

  7. Hi Everyone, I am new here and to pottery. Having been made redundant recently due to the covid. I want to start doing some pottery, modelling. My project is making flowers for home fragrance diffuser. Here are my questions: I am going to use bone china for this project: Do you think is it a good clay for my project If so, what is the programme to fire my flowers at for them to become a bisque?, for them to be hard ceramic but still porous for the fragrance to travel through? I thank everyone in advance for their help and sharing your great expertises Maureen
  8. I bought a beautiful mug and a few weeks later, it would develop a sandy feeling all over the mug about 10 -15 minutes after pouring boiling water into it for tea. About a week later I noticed the sandy feeling was sticky, as if the honey in the tea was leaking through. What causes this odd thing?
  9. Cheers! I thank you very much if anyone can consult. I don't know why in the black or red ceramic paste (which I have high temperature), my faldespatico base enamels do not cover this clay. The enamels come out with bubbles.., although in white clay they work well for me. I understand that black clays contain ox iron and manganese..
  10. Hi all, I'm planning on building a hobby kiln for my partner, and am in the process of choosing refractory materials and kanthal wire for the heating element. Was hoping I could get some advice from anybody who knows about these things. I want the kiln to be light weight and very efficient. I'd like to use ceramic fibre board as an inner layer of insulation (rated to 1400 C / 2550 F), and calcium silicate board as a secondary layer (rated to 1000 C / 1830 F). The ceramic fibre board is very expensive compared to the calcium silicate board, but i can't only use the calcium silicate board as it's only rated to 1000 C / 1830 F. So my idea is to cement the two boards together, with the calcium silicate board on the outside, so that it won't exceed 1000 C / 1830 F. I'm wondering how thick the ceramic fibre board needs to be such that the calcium silicate doesn't reach that temperature. We'll be firing the kiln to about 1280 C / 2340 F. My other question is about kanthal wire for the heating elements. I'm wondering what gauge of wire I need. The kiln will be about 40 litres / 1.3 cubic feet. I want it to get up to 1280 C / 2340 F. Based on similar designs that I've seen online, it looks like I'd need it run at about 3600 watts. I'm wondering what gauge kanthal wire I should use for a well-insulated kiln that meets these specs. If anyone has any idea about either of these questions I'd really appreciate your thoughts! P.S. I'm aware of the health risks of working with fibreboard, and will be using the proper PPE and precautions.
  11. Hello! I wasn't particularly sure which forum I should post this request, but I was wondering if anyone was able to help me out. I recently broke a decoration owned by my mother, one that she very much liked, and I was hoping someone would be able to help me identify it in order for me to buy another. She is not sure where she got it, but we are based in the UK. But we have a feeling it may be Scandinavian. I have searched around the web, and have failed in finding it available to buy. It may be only available in a store somewhere. Here is a link to a photo of it - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Huxk-UUWiO7dBfw019ZMAcT-zXxyj_6_ Many thanks in advance. R
  12. Hello everyone I created recently this almost 2 meters large ceramic sculpture. Since the form consists from many smaller pieces I was able to create this large size format but I would like to keep working on big size figures and I don't want every one of them to be chopped. If possible I would like to avoid making molds, simply sculpt and put it directly to kiln. So I was wandering if you can give me some advises on what type of armature I can use that can go into kiln and how to create this armature in order to follow shrinking while drying or baking? Thank you so much in advance

    I don't make many teapots, but I had the idea for this teapot with a hollow wave cut out of the body. It was an experiment, and it's not perfect but I still really like this piece. Wheel thrown and hand built with applied engobe and underglaze, sgraffito and hand painted waves. Fired to ^6 electric.

    This is my favorite piece I have made to date. I sold it about a year ago but haven't made another one yet. It's wheel thrown with applied colored engobes. It's hand carved and textured with pulled handles and commercial glazes. Fired to ^6 electric.

    This one is fresh from my latest firing. I'm in love with this one. It's wheel thrown with a pulled handle, underglaze decoration, and hand carved texture. It's glazed in 3 different commercial glazes and fired in my electric kiln.

    The mugs are made out of a beige clay I then coated the surface with a rustic green glaze and added a light touch to the rim with a light grey glaze.
