  1. Hi there, Like many artists, I am currently transitioning from making pottery in a community studio to working at home which is a big adjustment with an even bigger learning curve! I'll be setting up my very first kiln in the coming weeks and now need to figure out (for the first time) what the best commercial glazes out there are for the clay I'm using. For now I am using Standard #112 clay, and I will also eventually be working with their #551 Porcelain (both cone 6). I will be firing in a Skutt Km818 electric kiln. I have two big questions. First, does anyone have any tips on good commercial glazes to use on the #112 for a good fit? I'm specifically looking for a simple & reliable black, white and/or grey (glossy or matte), as well as other simple colors like cream, peach, soft/pale greens, yellows and generally neutral, organic tones. I like the look of flat color, and not necessarily layering. I've noticed that Coyote's Enduro-colors are really lovely and just my taste but I have zero experience with this company. Does anyone use these glazes? Has anyone tried Standard Clay CO's line of glazes? I just discovered those exist. Lastly, since much of my work is done by hand-painting AMACO Velvet underglazes, I now need to find a good zinc-free clear to put on top of both these clay bodies. Ideally, I'd love to find a glossy clear that won't craze or make my underglazes designs smudge or bleed color. This is a very overwhelming undertaking as a first-timer, so I'd love some feedback and guidance! Thanks!

    This embellished angel was made with little loafers cone 6 clay. The designs were rolled into the surface and then glazed. The face was press molded with a minor hand sculpting. The hair was made with a mini extruder. The hair and face is painted with Amaco LUGs and the wings are coyote white and the dress is Coyote Opal. This angel can be used as a stand alone figurine or it can be used as a tree topper. I added holes on either side so that it can be securely anchored to the tree.

    This 3-D pierce ornament is made up of 2 cookie cutter snowflake designs that I cut in half and stuck together to make it dimensional. It is pierce with small cutters as well and is glazed in Coyotes White.

    This is a bowl that I ruined as I was putting in the kiln to bisque fire. Originally it had braided handles to match the braid that runs around the top. As I was pulling my hands out I tapped on of the bone try handles with my little finger and it broke off. I removed it from the kiln shaved off the stump and cut off the other handle then decided I did not like it without handles drilled holes to add the beaded handles after it was fired. It is glazed in coyotes celadon line of glazes In Key line, Sedona Sunset and Sapphire. The handles are heavy duty wire with multi colored glass beads. The dish is NOT food safe due to the handles but it is a very pretty display piece.
