  1. I’m lost. I used Bermuda green mason stain in my porcelain clay body and it turned dark grey. I fired to cone 6. When I mixed it I used about half pound of stain to 7 pounds of a thick slip once wedged I get about 6 pounds of clay. I mix it with a mixer and then wedge it very well. I’ve never had issues before with any other colors. I used amaco clear glaze on top. I don’t believe it’s the glaze(maybe I’m wrong) because even sections I didn’t glaze are dark grey. Someone please shed some light on this and help me achieve the right color before I lose my mind
  2. 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
  3. I would like to share my latest experiments with colored clay ... I hope it will be a treat for all of you who love to throw. I spent most of last year experimenting with throwing colored clay in a way I call ... "Intentional Color Placement". In other words, instead of throwing randomly mixed colors like agateware, I wanted to get the colors exactly where I wanted them to be. I also wanted to create my own stripes and patterns by planning, not accident. So here are the results printed in the March/April 2017 issue of Pottery Making Illustrated. http://ceramicartsdaily.org/pottery-making-illustrated I hope many of you try these techniques and post pictures of your results. I would love to see what good throwers do with it!!
  4. For those who might be planning their summer workshop .... This is the only workshop I will be teaching in 2015. I will be covering everything from coloring clay, blending colors, making sheets of color and creating patterns. This year I have a lot of new research on throwing with colored clay to share with students.

  5. Here is a link to my Facebook Color/Colour in Clay page ... https://www.facebook.com/groups/286531511532039/ The first post with pictures is from a newbie who is noticing significant fading on a colored clay glazed piece that has been run through the dishwasher several times. Any comments would be welcome as this is a new problem for me.
  6. I have been updating my website today in order to add a tutorial on how to throw Skinner blended colored clay. http://www.ccpottery.com/wheel-throwing-colored-clay.html I am not a quick thrower anymore since I seldom use my wheel for anything other than making support forms for my work. But ... I have been so fortunate to have workshop hosts and attendees who are great throwers offer to try some experiments for me. The results are so inspiring I feel a definite tug towards the wheel again. Thanks so much to Tony Clennell and Mike Lalone for the throwing and to Heidi McKenzie for taking a zillion pictures during my recent workshop and then actually sending them to me ... Yeah!! Thanks to them all I have been able to add a lot of teaching content to the site. If anyone has any other tutorials they would like to see there, let me know and I will do it if I have images. ... and yes, someday I will get around to doing the video that everyone is bugging me to do.
  7. Tony Clennell and I ( Chris Campbell ) are ready to welcome you all to my week long, hands on colored clay workshop. In addition to the wonderfulness of the location, the cheerfulness of the staff ... you will also learn as much as you want to know about using Mason Stains to color clay, using the Skinner technique to blend secondary colors ( or should I say colours? ), making patterns and images from the resulting colors, creating vessels from them and using them for decoration. We will be firing every day so you will get daily doses of eye candy. It is possible to throw colored clay, so you can try your hand at that too. If you are attending this workshop I encourage you to bring any designs or images you would like to create with colored clay! I am very excited to present this workshop in my childhood stomping grounds, with my favorite Canadian potter buds .... so come and join the fun!
