  1. Hi- Any thoughts on use of stilts vs cookies for firing 06-04 glazed earthenware ? Have seen both recommended. Cookies seem a bit easier as no grinding off points, but stilts seem recommended much more often. This is my first kiln, so not sure which direction to go. As I am new at kiln work, don't want to ruin any shelves! THanks for any input. Barbara
  2. Hello! So, I'm planning on making two gargoyles to protect my home. Sadly, my kiln is a tired old man and only likes to fire in earthenware. Anyone here have experience with this? I was thinking a heavily grogged terracotta that is fired to ^03 might be my best option, but I'm not sure. The statues will not be glazed, as South Dakota winters are lethal to glazed ware!!

  4. I’ve been experimenting with making low-fire red clay plant pots, using a white slip and carvings for decoration. I’ve left them unglazed because I’d like them to breathe. However, I’ve found that the white slip discolors within a week or so of watering (it gets greenish brownish). I tried a commercial white underglaze instead, and it seems to have the same issue. Any thoughts on ways to get around this, other than staying away from the slips altogether?
  5. On a recent Clayflix tutorial by Lisa Naples she mentioned she fires her earthenware to cone 1 or 2, which reduces the water absorption rate by a huge amount and renders the clay almost vitreous. Does anyone have experience with this and, if so, what clay do you use?
  6. Greetings! I'm a fairly novice potter who has made figurative pottery with some functionality using Amaco Low Fire White, which fires to 04. These are mostly ring dishes and candle holders. I've recently been looking to make food safe pottery such as plates, teapots, and pie plates, but have been given conflicting reports on how to make them fully food safe. I know that low fire clay is somewhat porous, but would a good quality glaze make them 100% food safe? I also have heard that pie plates and other bakeware may be prone to thermal shock if just stuck into a hot oven, and the
  7. HNY everyone, I have a lovely low matt glaze, but I want to thicken it. So it gloops and drips, perhaps even foam. I've been looking everywhere for a glaze like this. I am a sculptor and I really love this Matt Wedel glaze. Any tips or recipes? Could there be an additive I can use to crystallise my glaze?
  8. I really need some help with the mixing of high fire glazes and medium. I have these 2 urns and my plan was to have a shiny white interior (stoneware 1200° C) interior with Amaco brush on on the outside, I've done the inside firing to 1200 with a 20min hold. My problem is that the interior has crawled badly so I thought I'd put crushed glass into it and refire, but having already fired to 1200 will the Amaco glazes actually work? TIA Andrea
  9. Aloha, I currently teach ceramics in a middle school and would love to know what clay body most teachers are using in their classroom. Actually, to those veteran educators working with kids what is your favorite clay? My first few years I used Soldate 60 because that is what I inherited. I enjoyed working with this clay body, but I decided to try Laguna Buff with Sand and EM-210 White since they are low fire and I have a lot of low fire glazes. My students hated the Buff with Sand because it was rough and honestly I couldn't pull a handle from a fresh bag of clay. I then decided
