Glazing bottom of pots

Recommended Posts

Any temp providing your pot has a foot ring that is kept glaze free. i.e. the footri ng prevents the glazed clay touching the kiln shef.

If you are glazing with a runny drippy glaze then the foot ring has to be taller.

You should make sure the bottoms are free of glaze is when there is no foot ring on the pot .

You can construct the pot with a recess or lip just above the base to catch any drips when glaze fires.

For lowfired pots the pots can be glazed all over and placed on spurs or stilts which leave only very small rough spots, easily sanded smooth after fired.
