Some New Pots From The Kiln

Post  bonsaibiker on Thu Jan 29, 2009 2:17 am

Not many pots here so thought I would post some of mine that came out of the kiln recently. I am a novice potter and just finding my way by trial and error at the moment. I am working on formulating my own glazes and trying to come up with something unique.[img][/img]

Seconded! I wish my early efforts had turned out half as nice as these. I'd have carried on, instead of leaving it to more talented potters. Embarassed

I particularly like the glazes of the second one - with the almost washed off oxide? and the fifth one - green with bands.

I agree. The second is my favorite. Did you use the "Steve" tool?

I too think you are doing great on these. Could you give us details to your firing temp (cone)? I assume you are doing oxidation?

Preston, yes that's it.

Thanks Rob, I am working at cone 6 oxidation. I see you are also making some awesome pots, I like them a lot.

bonsaibiker,

Very nice selection of pots and glazes.

The second one shown is outstanding. Good use of color and texture.

I like the speckled green glaze on the third pot. It appears from the photo that it has some movement to it. I think this one would work well on a pot with several linear beads which would allow the glaze to break on the high points and collect between the beads.

Good work!

Paul

More great pots!

I like the speckled claybody you are using. Is this from the addition of Manganese or is it already in the mix?

BTW You are doing a nice job with texture Smile

Paul, Thanks for the kinds words. The green glaze is one of my favorites to work with. You can get many different effects with it by using different application techniques etc.

Rob, That clay body comes with Manganese already in it from the supplier.


Other Paul, Thanks, I am north of Harrisburg. Don't have them for sale anywhere but PM me if you see something you like. I was just making them for myself but now I have way too many on hand.

bonsaibiker, I really like the clay with the manganese dioxide granules. I like the way the MnO2 reacts with the glaze and bleeds thru. I've never used it, but the place where I buy my clay (Clay Art Center in Tacoma WA) manufactures a light clay body with manganese dioxide granules incorporated in the clay. Next time I go there to buy clay, I'm going to pick up 25 pounds. A matt, opaque yellow or light blue glaze would look pretty cool with the speckled surface effect.

Wow, Larry, good stuff!

I wonder if throwing such small pieces requires you to use your hands in a whole new way. I shall have to try this sometime.

Thanks for sharing,
Rob
