  1. Hello everyone! I've just finished a firing of vases, all went well but my glazes aren't what I'd hoped for in exterior colour. I've had flowers with water in a few of them recently, and oddly on the base of them after a few hours is a damp ring/the base is damp.I I poured transparent on the inside and the clay is Scarva Earthstone Terracotta Crank E/S65. Do you think the transparent was too thin and is letting water though? My vases are made well, all sealed and simple in shape. So all I can think of is the glaze thickness being an issue? I'm very new to glazing, it's definitely an area that I'm very cautious around but I'm saving up to go on a glaze course soon. Any help would be so appreciated! Thank you all!
  2. Reaching out for some advice. I have made some large slip cast fish that will be mounted on steel posts in a garden installation. They fish are hollow and have a 1" round hole in the bottom of them to insert the stand/pole. I have glazed the first two and used picks to support but the weight and heat of cone 6 melted them onto the fish. So..... I went fishing for an idea and made a stand with the same clay with a post that touches the top of fish and wedges against the entry hole to hold fish in air so it can be glazed in the round. I have bisqued it and it seem strong but will it just collapse at cone 6? Should I cone 6 it before I put the bisqued glazed fish on it to fire? The fish really shrink so will check I can get the support out after. Other option is maybe to find a round pillar of cone furniture and adjust the hole so I can use that with some additional stabilization of base.
