  1. Hello, I have a figurative sculpture piece in a cone 5 white stoneware that I made poor Iron Oxide choice on. I put a fairly light Iron Oxide wash on over the entire thing as bisqueware, then fired it to cone 5. I'm O.K. ( or fatalistic) with about 90% of the surface, but the region of the head, which is a distinct area, is bothering me. There are some medals on the figures chest and i ran some super fine sandpaper over one and some of the oxide came up, the sanded area looks white. However that surface is closer to a burnished surface then the face is (I think) - so maybe the face absorbed more Iron Oxide? So I was thinking if I could sand off the face and... I don't know, some white glaze, or even try to underglaze and re-fire? My problems are a) I don't know how deeply Iron Oxide permeates a bisqueware piece, and b) I don't know when to stop messing with something. It may be I should just leave well enough alone. Just tried to put an image up but I'm not sure how to have a URL for an image, my carbonmade account isn't helping. Anyway, any sage advice would be appreciated .
  2. Hi, i'm having trouble with iron oxide slip applied at the greenware stage. i've noticed that a thin layer gives varied colours and a thick layer gives either black or nothing- does it burn off? (i use a transparent glaze over this) additionally, a lot of the colour washes out on cleaning after bisque. what's going wrong and how can i stablize the slip to give me a solid black? i use stoneware fired to cone 09 bisque and cone 6 glaze. thanks!
  3. Hi, I am trying to glaze some logo mugs (mugs with logo plaques/medallions that have company logos/words on them) and want to get some advice on the best way to make the words/shapes on the plaques show up. I am wondering if I should use a combination of iron oxide and a clear glaze to accent the words/shapes in black iron oxide and the clear glaze on the rest of the medallion/plaque? The rest of the mug will be dipped in another glaze. I am using speckled brownstone clay, cone 6 glaze firing, and glazes made in-house. Thank you for your advice!
  4. I have been experimenting with black iron oxide wash lately. The first time I tried it I used a cone 6 fired, unglazed clay (Miller 45 Buff) and got a nice clean wipe with the wash remaining in the crevices and achieved an even tone over the rest of the piece. When I tried it on bisque ware (05) it was another story. No matter how much I scrubbed I ended up with a blotchy wash on the flat surfaces. I am wondering if there is a trick to working with washes on bisque that I am missing. I thought about wetting the piece first and/or making the wash thinner perhaps. I don't want to have to take up precious space in a glaze firing to vitrify the pieces before I can apply the wash. Wondering if anyone has experienced this problem and how you resolved it. Thank you.
  5. I am trying to make , sung celadons, and need bout 1% to 2% iron in the body. but i do not want to see specks i remember using red iron oxide and it left specks, I am leaning toward black iron oxide, < 1 micron or yellow ocher any advise would be nice

    This one has the addition of iron oxide on just the flowers, stems and leaves, but I felt like it added very little so I won't bother next time. The glaze on its' own has a lovely break and brings out the design beautifully.

    Working in pairs!!! My late friend Linda loved to carve, but had trouble throwing. I would throw and trim things and she'd carve them. Her thrown pottery was so wonky I consider it folk ark! I'm lucky enough to have a couple of her carved vessels and really lucky to have a couple of her wonky pieces. This is cone 10 stoneware, glazed inside and on the neck and the rest is stained with a black iron oxide wash..
