  1. Hi! I’ve recently been doing a lot of experiments with clay deposits I’ve found as well as other found materials used in clay or glazed. I’ve been doing a lot of testing with wedging a lot of coarse granite into my clay. It makes it rough to throw with but my hands are tough enough it doesn’t bother me. I’ve usually been applying a found quartz and wood ash glaze that I’ve formulated to these pieces at cone 6 (lots of GB). The glaze gives a nice amber finish and seems to be helping the granite flux as it runs a bit giving nice variation, colour, and texture. My current test are going to include wedging the granite into a clay I found that can be fired up to cone 6 and I’m excited for these results. Does anyone have any tips regarding granite being added to clay, good glaze combos with found rough granite filled textures, other good experiments with found materials, etc?? Thanks! Matt

  3. I have been working with the St Cloud Granite, and milled some up today , you can see the rock on the picture next to the milled granite , it has layers after settling , and some of it looks like iron ocher, even after sitting one day i get this fine material that just will not settle down so i pour that into a jar and add some vinegar and it settles out , but it is so fine i have to put it in a bisq fired bowl or it will go thru the cloth i use and that way recover it
  4. From the album: John Baymore's Clay Work

    Yunomi thrown from clay with massive amounts of local NH granite dust and stone mixed in. Almost more stone than clay. Fired many multiple times in my woodfired noborigama to get the rocks to melt sufficiently. Included wooden stoage box. Sold at one of my solo exhibitions at an asian art gallery in the US. Now in the personal collection of the executive director of a US art museum.
