11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: any potters out there!? on: March 18, 2009 04:52:42 PM
Yay potters! Im in highschool and have been doing pottery for the past 3 years. I love it.   Cheesy

I broke my leg last year and ever since then I throw funny. My right leg still isnt very strong so I throw lefthanded on my kick wheel even though I am righthanded. It works pretty well but I still have a fair amount of pain so I also do alot of handbuilding and tile making.

odd-artist, I understand your pain over the damaged kiln! At school we had a bit of a disaster with the raku kiln. We store it outside because we have no room and thats where we fire the thing, but this winter the janitor hit it with a snowplow!  Shocked Its almost totally crushed and I have to rebuild it. (Im one of 3 senior potters so this is kinda my job.)
12  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: glazing techniques? on: March 18, 2009 04:38:00 PM
Shaving cream? never heard of that one.

I often make pottery with carvings or drawing on it so when I glaze it I paint over the detail then wipe it with a sponge- the glaze stays in the details only. Then I leave the rest plain, glaze with another color, or with clear. Works pretty good but sometimes the glazes melt together and look funny.

Other things:

Use tape or wax to leave areas without glaze.

Marbles or glass in the bottoms of stuff leaves and awesome effect, but remember the finished product will not be food-safe.

Watered down glaze in a spray bottle. Over another color looks good.

I use the cement and tile floor spaces in the basement for handbuilding. The cement works great for texture or when stuff is a bit wet.
