No comments recently, so I continue to dig...Embarassed Shocked

Just kidding.Wink

Here is a simple round in a nice fine clay. It is really quite plastic rather than groggy, but it works well once you get the hang of it.

This is a pot that I made for Steven Smith of the Central Florida Club. It is shallower and larger than the blue pot above. Steve has purchased quite a few of my pots and he is one cool dude!

Nice work as always Rob. What do you mean by "plastic rather than groggy"? Is that a reference to the clay while working with it?

Good eye Klaudia! You probably know that Floating Blue needs to be applied very thick. Although I did test this recipe, I dipped the test tile. On this particular pot I did a brush application on a very dry bisque. I think it is the cause of the dunting.

Have you had similar issues before with this glaze or application?

This slab octagon measures 13.5" across. Those of us who make slab pots know that this method takes a lot of time and patience... Wink

I used Red Iron Oxide underneath my copper satin glaze. It gave this pot an antique look.

Any comments?

Rob
Its been a great summer and I have made quite a few pots unfortunatly I did not get around to photographing much and this last batch was mostly funtional pots. I have a show coming up this winter and it will be more of my pitchers, bottles, cups and bowls so I have been exploring those forms more. I am now pretty much out of bonsai pots though and need to get busy on those. We have students back in 10 hours 27 minutes, so summer is officially over. I can second that thought about getting in a groove. I fired the wood kiln last week and am sooooo ready to start making the next batch, but alas schools back in session so I guess it is back to working the late night Suspect
Hope your year gets off to a good start, and I look forward to seeing more work as you can fit it in.

Hello Rob
Sorry, I haven't read this.....
I must say that I still have no such nice blue than the one you use. This really looks very "versatile".
The one I have used is nice with spraying.....and kind of "ugly" when brushed.

I like the free spots in the glaze with your pot....even if it is not wanted.
I experienced this affect with an other glaze....recognizing later that I possibly had touched the pot with fatty fingers.

So I left this experience behind now using rubbergloves while glazing.......BUT....does this maybe contain another usefull technic to influence the glazeperformance ?????? scratch

Kind regards

Thanks Klaudia, for leaving me with something to think about.....

Here's a rather simple form from last week's kiln load. The glaze is a bit runny but I think it could be a suitable color for bonsai.

This small round was altered with a texture pattern. I want to try using a glaze over this dark clay soon.

Rob,
I like that thrown altered pot! Did you twist up the surface or add clay to create that texture?
