  1. Melissa Foss Workshop: Sounds of the Americas – Introduction to the Ocarina WS02 –Sunday, 11-2pm, October 17 & 24, 2021 Fee: $100 member/$110 non-member Ancient peoples of all times and latitudes have used an elaborate weave of myth, art and music to communicate their world visions. In the Americas we can connect with this heritage through a rich tradition of musical instruments whose forms, scales and sounds give us a glimpse into the extraordinary cultures that created them. In this hands-on workshop we will take a journey back in time through the Ocarina, a type of ceramic flute that has been produced across Central and South America for thousands of years. The unique sounds of this instrument awaken the memory of our common ancestry, recalling the songs of the birds and animals that inhabit our most sacred natural landscapes. All clay, tools and firing included. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory. Bio Melissa Foss is a musician, instrument-maker and composer hailing from Maryland and Vermont. She received her BA in Art History from James Madison University in Virginia. For the last decade she has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she completed her Master’s degree in Musical Creation, New Technologies and Traditional Arts at the National University of Argentina. There she taught in the Bachelor's program in Indigenous, Popular and Classical Music of the Americas, and was a soloist with the university’s Orchestra of Indigenous Instruments and New Technologies, performing in Argentina and touring abroad in Europe and Central America. Her composition “Hanblecheyapi,” which was composed using a collection of her own instruments from the three Americas, was one of the International Rostrum of Composers’ 12 recommended works in 2018 and has been broadcast by the BBC and other radio programs in Finland, Portugal and Austria. 21F_WS02 –Sunday, 11-2pm, October 17 & 24, 2021 Fee: $100 members; $110 non-members Contact Matthew Hyleck at matt.hyleck@baltimoreclayworks.org for more information.

  2. I am very much a beginner... I’ve attended Slab pottery sessions for the past year or so and love it. To the extent where I’ve been asked to make and sell for a local shop as she saw the pieces I was making via social media. I love the process of it all but have no real knowledge in terms of owning my own kiln and the firing process. ive attempted to look online but it’s all over my head as I’m not sure what to even begin looking for. I understand kilns are very expensive but are there any suitable for people fairly new to ceramics??
  3. I purchased a beautiful mug just recently and I am trying to figure out the artists name but I am having trouble. It looks to be Hcbie Ltcbie Locbie Hobie .... I have done an image search and can't seem to find anything! https://imgur.com/5blvEpN https://imgur.com/NidHIOW
  4. Hi ! I am so glad I found this forum. I am trying to kick start a ceramic club. Here at our facility we have our Kiln room that is fully equipped, completed with endless amount of supplies. I really hit the mother load, however this room has not been utilized in ten(10) years or so. We have EVERYTHING, but nothing has an expiration date. I've been into ceramics since high school, unfortunately this is just something I am not familiar with. Most of our supplies are either Mayco or Duncan Bisque, I might call customer service to check with them about their under glazes, glazes, paints and such. But if you have any tips, advice on anything that might help. We have our kiln that is practically brand new it just needs love. Also does anyone know if porcelain or earthenware that has been here that long is still good to use and if so how to give it life. I know this is a lot, any help is welcomed thank you in advanced

    The final result of my first animal head sculpture. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out--as you can imagine, I was sweating when this piece was in the kiln!! My fella, its intended and current owner, was extremely happy when he got it for Christmas. <3 Sculpted from Clay Art Center (of Tacoma)'s Xtra White lowfire earthenware, painted with Amaco, Mayco, Duncan, and Clay Art Center underglaze, fired to ^03.

    Thrown bowls, cut at right angles to the rim. Thin slabs textured with bark, stamps, shells etc. - pieces attached to back part with front cut edge eased forwards to emphasise the contrast between the organic and engineered. Oxide washes applied at dry greenware stage, fixed in the bisqued firing. 3 back pieces were dipped in transparent glaze, front one dipped in tin white (to cover a repair that fired a different colour!). Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.
  10. From the album: 2016

    3 creamers with cobalt tissue transfers applied through a home made stencil with transparent glaze over. Wedding favours - 2 test pieces (120 in total) glazed with Mayco Stroke and Coat. Individual name tags to be attached using teal ribbon. These are for my niece (a labour of love) - would never be cost effective as a commercial item, unless someone had money to throw away! Fired to 1100oC in electric kiln.

    Meet Rocky, the little box of dynamite. Sadly, this beautiful bowl did not survive the postman. Grrr... Measured 11" across, fired to ^03.

    Here he is, Mr. Inlé himself. I could not, for the LIFE of me, get a good photo of him. No picture I took does this piece any justice... he's one of my favorites. Terracotta with white slip, ^03. Holds 15oz.

    Oh, man. This mug was such a beauty until I saw the dang spots where the glaze pickled on the inside and didn't fill in the bubble holes...hnngh. I didn't want to refire and risk the dragon's lines bleeding, and I couldn't BEAR to smash such a pretty mug, so I gave her to my fella. Terracotta with white slip, ^03.

  15. From the album: Early 2015

    Yep. Another kitsune. Made from seward terracotta and white slip. Fired to ^03.

    Chewbacca and Junior were brothers--Chewy passed late 2014, and their bunmom wanted a big mug with their sweet faces on it. Yes, Chewy actually had that wiseguy smirk! Whiteware mug (26oz), fired to ^03.

    This is Chewbacca, another bun who loves his blankies. He sadly passed away in late 2014, at the age of eleven. The piece is a wide-rimmed 10" bowl, fired to ^03.

    This is a whiteware bowl covered in black slip with a white underglaze illustration. Bisqued ^04, fired ^03. I donated it to River's Wish Animal Sanctuary for their Art for the Animals event. :3

    I actually made this a flower pot on purpose, haha...not a trimming accident! I think it's perty...kinda... *hides*

  24. From the album: MOAR STUFFS

    This bowl was a process, to say the least. I threw it with whiteware clay, messed with the rim, and covered it completely with black slip. Then, I carved the dragon. I bisqued it, and since carving all those scales took away all of my sanity, I underglazed color onto the bisque, and re-bisqued it. Covered in shiny clear and fired to ^04. Dang thing had little crawl spots, grrr...re-fired to ^03 after adding a bit more glaze to the bald spots. Voíla! Sold it a few years ago for a stupidly low $150... *facepalm* I'dve charged four times that if I was thinking straight. Live and learn!
