"Any chance that you erred when mixing the glaze?  Put in a wrong ingredient or twice of an ingredient or such?  I'd be tempted to mix up a small batch, being very careful, and testing it to see if it behaved.  "

"I have a glaze that is usually very well behaved but the last the I made a batch it started cracking and flaking off the pot.  I can still use it but now need to apply and fire, reapply - particularly in the bare patches and refire. After the…"

"One of the problems with bucket glazes is convincing people to be certain that they're completely mixed. When a bucket of glaze has an inch of solids at the bottom, you're missing most of some of the glaze ingredients. So what you're…"

"No, it was not fired in. If fired in the color is much stronger and when glazed without firing in it is more pastel, which is what I was looking for. I have done either before without ever having problems. The glaze peeled from all over. I am…"

"it might be a silly question on my part but was the underglaze fired before putting on the glaze? Also did the glaze peel from all over the pot or just over the slip or underglaze?"

A clear glaze that I have used for years crackled badly so much so that it can be lifted off the pots. Ther was a slip underneath that was fired in during bisque. On top of the slip was underglaze. Anyone any idea? The glaze also underfired. See More

"Thank you for your comment, Denice. The boat shape was copied from a piece of wood I found (hence the name). The glaze is apple crackle, and it was fired as raku with post-firing sawdust reduction.  It was actually fired in a raku kiln that we…"

"I love the shape of this boat shape pot and the glaze makes it appear to have been just plucked out of an archeological dig.  What type of glaze is this, cone, oxidation, reduction, wood, raku?   Denice"

Annika Hinze replied to Arnold Rowntree's discussion Wood or oil fired kiln
"I have not created a specific kiln for cone 6 but rather used our wood-fired Phoenix kiln (normally fired to cone 10) for a raw firing to cone 6. The kiln is ussually fired with soda so even though we did not use soda, everything needed to be wadded…"

"Very nice piece.  I suppose theft could be seen as a form of compliment, but more so, it seems tawdry."

Profile Information

What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Interested in learning, amateur, professional
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I am mainly doing terracotta with electric firing when working in a local potters collective instead of my own studio. I regularly have the opportunity to join in with other potters using an electric kiln in a local arts community. I enjoy experimenting with the bright colors and immediacy of terracotta.

I also love wood firing and gas firing stoneware pottery because the kiln adds its own magic to the items. Nothing can be completely determined before and items often come out somewhat different to what one might expect. For me this aspect adds interest to the firing process.

As yet no one has tested and commented on the remarkably inexpensive air brushes at harbor freight.

The critter siphon gun is a spray alternative that is well liked by some of our members, and is available at amazon.

Amazon is also a competitive source for photo light tents for shooting professional quality pictures of your work. They also have the EZ Cube brand favored by several of our members. You might also want to purchase the book Photographing Arts, Crafts and Collectibles . . .

Tips for Members

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. In the upper right corner of the lists for both types of posting, you will find an "+Add " button. Clicking it will open an editor where you create your posting. 4/16/2014
