  2. 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
  3. Hi there. I love these glazes that Seth Rogan does - does anyone have any idea how they could have been done?!
  4. Hello, I am currently in the very early stages of organizing a ceramics conference that will be taking place sometime in the future most likely after a vaccine for COVID is developed. I am looking for any information, suggestions, or tips anyone can provide when it comes to preparing, organizing, implementing, attending, etc... a ceramics conference. All information is helpful. Looking forward to the help! Cheers,
  5. Hello all, I am a very new potter, I have currently only made one piece but I'm very interested in mixed materials ceramics and metal/wood for bowls and cups, I was wondering if it was possible to turn per fired ceramics on something like a wood lathe at very slow speeds? I was hoping someone on here migh of experimented with this workflow and be able/willing to share their experinces? My thoughts currently are as follows: Throw the clay body, wait for it to dry to possibly just a little beyond leather dry, then turning to slightly larger than the required diameter on lathe, allowing for shrinkage in the firing. Looking forward to sharing my adventures with all of you. Ben Crowe
  6. Hi, I am new to ceramic glazing. Are there any methods that can duplicate fire-based glazing on ceramics? I work at home, so i do not have access to kiln. I have read there are oven-based glazes and non-fire based glaze. How effective are they in terms of the glaze (will it be similar to fire glazed plate)? Thank You.
  7. Hi guys! I 've been learning to make ceramic plates for a while now, and I am looking for ways to keep track of my work and progress in a quantitive way. Have any of you done something like this? Which apps/softwares would you recommend to keep track of learnings and insights? Let me know. Thanks.
  8. Hi all, pretty new to the world of creating my own glazes - I have found several on glazy.org that I like (although I'm aware that an opensource online forum for glazes can be potentially disastrous). The question that I have is for silicon carbide. The recipe I'm referencing is this https://glazy.org/recipes/20474 which calls for a 1200 mesh SiC. The original recipe - https://glazy.org/recipes/19163 - calls for 1000 mesh SiC. The pottery supplier in my area carries only 400 mesh. What would the difference in appearance be? There's a massive difference in how those two glazes look and I worry that if I were to try it, a 400 mesh SiC would have none of the nice specking or bold colors. Any help or insight would be appreciated.
  9. Super newbie to the world of glazes. I have a few recipes from a trusted source, and upon recommendation I purchased several mason stains to add to a base glaze for an inexpensive and stable option. I used the super basic 20x5 base glossy glaze and added my stains to that as a trial. Some of them are great, but most of them are homogeneous in appearance. There's no variegation, it's not very interesting to look at. I'm wondering if there's something I can add to the 20x5 recipe, or a different clear glossy base glaze that would give the stains a more variegated appearance. Any help is appreciated!

  11. “The Clay Canvas” Sgraffito Workshop with Alissa Mittl Register Here May 24, 2020: 10:00am – 4:30pm * EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH 3/24/2020 * $145.00 Early Bird Nonmembers (includes lunch) $115.00 Early Bird Members (includes lunch) $165.00 Nonmembers (includes lunch) $135.00 Members (includes lunch) In this one-day workshop, students will learn how clay can be treated as a two-dimensional canvas using sgraffito carving techniques. The term sgraffito originates from the Italian term graffiare meaning “to scratch.” It is a ceramic carving technique in which the colored, leather-hard surface is scratched through to reveal the clay body underneath. Using underglazes and carving techniques, Alissa will demonstrate how to build visually upon the ceramic surface to create depth and detailed imagery. An interest in drawing is encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary! All materials included. Register Here About the Ranch Reitz Ranch is comprised of 14 acres on the beautiful Verde River in Clarkdale, Az. Nestled between Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, and Sedona, the ranch offers easy access from any spot here in the heart of Arizona wine country. With a remote feel, the ranch is still within a 20 minute drive of stores, restaurants, and nightspots. Built on the bones of a working ranch, the rich heritage of the ranch is apparent everywhere you look. A bunkhouse built over 100 years ago out of river rock, well pump handles, and literally hundreds of Don’s “porch pots” add to the experience. Whether you’re a beginning potter, advanced hobbyist, or working professional, then ranch can meet your needs. A well-equipped open studio, a wood fired kiln selection, and most importantly, a helpful community of wonderful people with the same interests will make you feel right at home.
  12. Hi, I have problems trying to find the answers to this question. I want the "paint" I use to be something like China ink, but that it doesn't run and that fires well to cone 10 without loosing color. Thank you for your help!
  13. From the album: Raku

    On Tuesday some friends helped me install the new lid with counter weight in my kiln shed. On Monday same friends dugs a hole for gravel for my raku kiln. I filled it with gravel and laid the half cinder blocks. After I put the cinderblocks down, they moved the frame in place. Today I raised the floor to a double cinderblock height . This weekend I will work of the stainless steel chamber lined with fiber. Beautiful weather after our early snow last week.
  14. From the album: Gas Kiln

    Well thanks to the community here I loaded this kiln and I believe I solved my problem of not having enough air flow in-between the shelves. Thanks everyone who helped, the kiln is firing right now so hopefully it turns out perfectly.

    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.
