1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / The semester of the Cup (lots of photos) on: June 20, 2011 10:09:44 PM
All right, first post for me!

A little information (because I always love as much information as possible, skip if you don't care): All of these were thrown. The glaze fire is a high fire. Most were fired in a (natural gas) salt kiln at about cone 10. Some were done in a Cone 9 kiln. Both kilns we put into reduction during the last part of the firing. I will try to give as much information about glaze as possible if you have questions, but as many of our glazes were created by students/faculty, so I am not sure how "standard" they are or if they will make any sense to anyone else. I am also notoriously terrible about writing down exactly what I do...

 The photos may be a little cheesy. I was trying to channel my brother-in-law who is a product photographer Smiley

Salt-fired. I wasn't ecstatic about the interior of the cup, but I loved the variation in color on the outside (salt! I love you!)


this is the same as the previous one except the rutile slip was also around the interior of the lip as well and caused the variation in color.

Salt-fired. Lots of glaze mixing here. There is a slip and then three glazes.

This was the same combination of glazes as above, but fired in a cone 9 kiln (without salt)


And here is a bowl, for good measure Smiley


Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!!!! Don't hesitate to ask questions. I LOVE this stuff (clay, ya know) and won't be able to get back to doing it for another couple months and talking about clay non-stop helps downplay the symptoms of withdrawal Wink

[edit]: I replaced the thumbnails with actual photos! Sorry!
