Here are a few oval pots that came out of the last firing.





I hope you enjoy.

I envy You the yellow glaze. If I finally find some in the future for my wood firing, I think it won´t be such "true" and bright yellow, just some derivate of brown.
Thanks for sharing, for inspiring.

Wow, Paul, great stuff as always!

Was wondering, are the last pots in that 50/50 claybody we talked about before? If so, it really does show off glazes well.

Hopefully by this time next year I will be in the realm of ^10, moving up from ^6 to ^8. I have recently purchased some new glaze books by a very reputable source/author on the subject and I am very much looking forward to making up some good base glazes and going from there. In my opinion, that is the best way to go.

Time will tell...

With great admiration,
Rob

You are most welcome Tom. I appreciate you taking the time to share you thoughts.

Yellow is a particularly difficult color to produce firing to ^10. This particular yellow glaze uses red iron oxide as the colorant and is quit dependable in the kiln I use. The bright yellow color on this pot is mainly due to the light colored clay body that the pot was made from. I think it would be very difficult to reproduce this color in a wood fired kiln.

Paul

Good morning Rob,

Yes, the last three oval pots are made from the 50/50 clay body we discussed. As you can see, it is a very good clay body for showing off colored glazes.

Knowing how dedicated you are to making the best pots you can, I think you will have be able to achieve great results using this clay body.

Good luck with your glaze testing. I look forward to seeing what you can achieve and thanks for taking the time to comment on my pots.

Regards,
Paul

Hello Andreas,

I see that this is your first post here on the IBC.

I am honored that you have chosen to comment on my work.

The glaze on that first blue oval pot is called Midnight Blue. The pot is made from an English porcelain clay body and is what gives the glaze it's depth. On any other clay body, this glaze looks black.

I appreciate your complements very much.

Have a great day.

Regards,
Paul

Here are a few more round pots for your consideration.




I would be very interested in your thoughts on this next glaze.



This is a new glaze I have been working on and this is the first test on a pot.

Regards,
Paul

Great looking pots! Your forms are very refined and I like the purple glaze. I also like the last glaze very much it reminds me of a bone ash glaze I use.

You have a good eye for glazes Robert. I'm kind of partial to the purple glaze myself and yes, the finish on that last pot is a bone ash glaze.

Your feedback is always welcome.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Paul

Paul,
The contrast of the texture in the first pot is accented very well with the dark brown engobe that you have chosen. Nice.

I love the rutile in the glaze of the second one. For those of you who do not know, rutile is a material consisting of titanium with iron. It give lovely mottling and tan and yellow hues to glazes. It is one of my favorite materials to use in glazes. It is a very lovely use here in this pot.

Now this third pot throws me for a loop. It looks like a tenmoku base, but I am interested in the green hue that I see in the photograph. Is this the teadust tenmoku?

Curious,
Rob

PS I have a fired example of that half/half clay in a lovely oval, and will post it soon. Thanks!

The first pot reminds me of a pile of bricks. I've not seen that technique achieve that particular effect. Very nice. Are any of you Florida potters going to NCECA in Tampa this year?

Thanks Keith, your feedback is always appreciated.

The compliment means a great deal when it comes from the King of cracked pots himself.

I'm glad you like this one, it's one of the new combination's I've been working on lately.

Paul

Hey Rob,

In regards to the first pot, it's not an engobe. Actually, it's a new glaze that I have been experimenting with. It's a dark metallic colored glaze that shows some promise. This is the first test of this glaze on a pot and I was quite happy with the results when I took this pot out of the kiln last Monday.

You are correct on the second pot. This is a traditional Chinese, blue chun glaze which does contain rutile. It's the reduction of the rutile that produces the blue color.

As for the third pot, your not even close. This is another rutile based glaze. As you know, rutile based glazes can be extremely variable and this one is no exception.

I hope that satisfies your curiosity.

I look forward to seeing your new work.

Regards,
Paul

HI Preston,

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my work.

You right, the first pot does look like a pile of crumbling bricks. I've been playing around and refining these stretched pots this past year. I like this particular effect myself and have been able to recreate this look with some consistency.

Unfortunately, because other commitments, I will not be able to attend NCECA this year. You planning on making the trip?

Paul

I would be happy to bring them along Russell.

I'll set them aside for you this evening.

Paul,

Cool. Its always good to learn of more ways to use a colorant...

Preston,

I was considering going to the convention, but now I am on the fence so to speak. What about you?

Paul,
Good stuff! I love the texture you achived on that first one in this series. As Preston mentioned it seems to be a good inovation on the process. I hope the glaze discussion does not bother you I find it very interesting and educational how we get some different glaze effects. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

Good evening Robert,

Much obliged for the compliment.

I am not bothered in the least. In my opinion, any discussion about glaze is a discussion worth having. The sharing of information and ideas along with the pretty pictures does not cause me any grief.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my work.

Regards,
Paul
