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.
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.
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.
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.
