  1. Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me, I have around 10 glaze fired tiles, they are all stoneware and I fired to 1200 with a 30 minute soak. 7 were glazed with textured brush on glazes and 3 were painted with a transparent glaze. For some reason when I took them all out of the kiln, all three transparent glazed ones and one beige tile appear to have several cracks in the back. The clay is a white stoneware clay, I placed them directly onto a batt washed kiln shelf and all three transparent tiles were on the top shelf. Not sure if this may be a coincidence. Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can fix this issue?

  3. I am looking to buy a used Gare 1818 from a guy on Craigslist, but I cannot find any information on this kiln. I realize it’s an older kiln model, and I read that Gare was rebranded to Evenheat. This would be my first kiln so I wanted to do my research, and I was hoping to find a manual or something online but I’m coming up empty. Does anyone have any information on this kiln? Used kilns are hard to come by in my area, so I’m debating on just buying it anyway, and hoping for the best.

  5. Hi there. I love these glazes that Seth Rogan does - does anyone have any idea how they could have been done?!
  6. Hello to everyone! My name is Giulia, and I am a recent BFA graduate from ABAC, Italy. I studied sculpture and learn how to work with tough materials (marble, wood etc…) but now I would like to study more about ceramic. I have academic knowledge about the material and learn by myself how to use a pottery wheel. I am looking for some sort of opportunity such as an apprenticeship, assistant ship, internship, or other studio/workshop help. I would prefer to stay in Europe and to be more specific on the Netherlands... Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? It doesn't matter if the position is paid I just want to learn more. Thank you all, Giulia
  7. Hello, I am currently in the very early stages of organizing a ceramics conference that will be taking place sometime in the future most likely after a vaccine for COVID is developed. I am looking for any information, suggestions, or tips anyone can provide when it comes to preparing, organizing, implementing, attending, etc... a ceramics conference. All information is helpful. Looking forward to the help! Cheers,
  8. Hi all- hope everyone is doing well wherever you are. I was interested in purchasing an overglaze luster (metallic/gold) to apply to my pottery, but realizing my studio doesn't have the capability to do a 'third firing' for my pieces (especially if it requires different heating instructions etc.). I believe the studio fires at cone 6. Is there an alternative to using overglaze luster that could get me a similar effect? Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks.
  9. Hi, I am new to ceramic glazing. Are there any methods that can duplicate fire-based glazing on ceramics? I work at home, so i do not have access to kiln. I have read there are oven-based glazes and non-fire based glaze. How effective are they in terms of the glaze (will it be similar to fire glazed plate)? Thank You.

  11. Hi guys! I 've been learning to make ceramic plates for a while now, and I am looking for ways to keep track of my work and progress in a quantitive way.

  12. Hi all Had our gallery's Christmas bash recently and a debate broke out about our personal definitions of who we are and what we do....... some thought 'potter' and 'pottery' was outdated, some kind of 1970's 'hippy' brown 'mug and jug' concept others said 'ceramicist' sounded like some inflated, interllectual self-justifying 'label' for a craft already practiced for thousands of years others thought 'ceramics' allowed for broader interpretations than functional wares and ALL were horrified that handmade artisan work could get lumped into 'paint-a-plate/hobby ceramics'!! ............the impetus for today's question was one person's strong assertion that ....'in the US and UK theyre called ceramicists not potters!'..............really?? .......it does not seem the case as I read through CAD but maybe I can't read.........so I will ask the question.... How do you define yourself and what you do?....... potter/pottery, ceramics/ceramicist....or some hybrid or variation? Look forward to the answers....... Have a great Christmas/New Year holiday!! ......btw, 35C here today...no snow Irene
