Today has been all about the glazing. I am being very prepared for hatfield!
This is one of my carved lidded pots. First i glaze the inside shiny green, then I glaze the outside tenmoku. I have to allow the pot to thoroughly dry in between each layer.
Next I dip the pot in rutile blue over the tenmoku. Once this has dried I sponge the glaze off the carving then apply the shiny green.
I am using my mop bucket here, as it is the only bucket I can fit my teapots in to glaze. I glazed a teapot shortly before this video. I was pretty impressed with my inventiveness when I realised the perfect fit!
Finally it is finished and ready to serve me well. 🤘🏼
I am very pleased with my fist tumbler cup. I can call it a success. ☺
Thank you @pottery.gagliano for a lovely time in the studio. I am looking forward to next term.
This SUNDAY! GLAZING 101/102 – Intro to Glazes: $35
Date & Time:
7/23 Sun 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Join us for a 2 hour glaze workshop where our helpful and experienced instructors will help you find the best glaze for your finished pieces, walk you through the glaze options available at the studio, and a variety of techniques for applying color and texture to your work. You must be currently enrolled in classes at the studio to attend.
Techniques to be covered include using one glaze vs. layering two glazes, dipping vs brushing, and under-glazes vs glazes. We will also learn how each type of glaze at the studio works so you can achieve the results you want and be sure you are making safe combinations and applying glaze correctly.
Each student should bring at least one bone dry piece and at least two bisque-fired pieces that are ready to be glazed.
Max 8 students
