I last posted about some interesting results and glaze issues in a recent glaze fire. Here are the rest of the blog-worthy pieces from that glaze fire. These were fired to ^6, oxidation with a 15 minute hold at the peak temp. Wheel thrown with Amaco Warm Brown Stoneware.
Photos from the Last Kiln Load
I guess it’s about time to upload some pictures of pots from the last kiln load since the kiln is currently cooling with a fresh load of pots. All are Warm Brown Stoneware, wheel thrown and fired to cone 6 on June 23rd. The decal pots were put through the next bisque fire after the decals were applied.
Currently In The Clay Studio
I’ve been trying to get enough work scraped together for a bisque fire. Mostly weekend work. But soon that will change… It’s almost summer break! I’ve got Â a nice platter thrown and trimmed that is drying slowly. I also have a handful of PBL mugs, a couple berry bowls, and a bunch of other random pieces.
I don’t think I have enough for a full bisque load but I plan to try some more decals. Hopefully I can fill in the empty spaces with those. I’m hoping to bisque fire by Tuesday or Wednesday. But there’s a chance that I might make a few more things if I have too much space to fill. We’ll see what happens.
Summer Pottery – Mugs, Vases, Bowls
I glaze fired a number of items way back in July.Â Then I got busy doing other projects like making a backdrop for photographing ceramics, redesigning a website, and getting settled into a new school.Â Finally, you can see the finished pieces from that summer glaze fire below.Â I haven’t really been in the clay studio much since then but I’ve got some ideas rolling around in my head for the next time I get some time at the wheel.
All items are glaze fired to cone 6 and are either Warm Brown Stoneware from Amaco or Speckled Stoneware by Laguna.
