  1. Hi folks, I am smitten with kentucky mudworks brown bear but because I fire in a studio kiln I can do the stretched out cooling that can help with glazing a super dark clay body. So I was curious if people had a commercial glaze that doesn't pinhole or bubble with brown bear. I have a few that work ok but it's pretty finicky. Thank so much oona
  2. I am making some drinking mugs for a Renaissance Faire. I am using Kentucky Mudworks Brown Bear clay body, one I have just started using recently (I LOVE the beautiful chocolate brown color after firing). I threw the mugs and then attached a shield-shaped slab piece on the front, and am etching out the name of our Ren Fest on the front. I love the idea of leaving the shield unglazed and just glazing the rest of the mug around it, but I'm afraid the etched out words/image will not be very legible since the clay is so dark. I tried to find pictures of similar things on the internet and couldn't find it. Any ideas on whether it will be legible or I should try underglaze on the letters? (and which colors underglaze would work?) Or other options altogether. They are all already thrown, so slip is not an option at this point.
  3. From the album: Ceramics Fall 2016

    Turquoise stone and white matte ^6 ox on calico dark red clay. A couple very wonky vases that developed decent sized cracks from uneven drying, this was one of the first things I made after taking a hiatus of 3 years from clay, be gentle! I needed to keep a few unsatisfactory pieces to try my experiments. I am totally head over heals in love with the color combo, but am very sad all the pieces developed pin holes on them... I talked to the professor and she is going to go over how to avoid that next time and keep my work together as to have a more consistent firing.
