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!
I am interested in Your input... I want to tile my bathroom myself, using tiles I created with molds. So the tiles created MUST be WATER PROOF! Firing the green ware using a home kiln, using my 110v house hold run wiring. Finally after firing to bisque, glazing to fire. I live in a townhouse so extra venting or drilling is not possible. I know this venture is going to take forever unless Covid takes me. What kind of kiln? How and why. I use to help my mom when she use to do ceramics. Way back with cones and giant kilns. So not what I want nor need
