Side two Mountain

Side two Mountain

This side appears to have melted a little less into the underlying clay and shows almost no cone 6 glaze.  Not certain why perhaps this side of the sculpt was positioned away from the coils of the kiln? More layering between the surface pattern and the clay? Not sure. Here is, however, a breakdown as […]

Mountain Glaze unglazed

Mountain Glaze unglazed

When you fire cone 6 the clay really melts causing a fusion between the underlying clay and the surface design. If the surface isn’t thick enough it melts away, gets blurred, or gets really dark. Here is one example where the cone 6 glaze really wiped out the pattern and caused mostly a blurred effect. […]

I built up layers of different types of blue on top of the Vulcan figure, combining an electric blue underglaze with rubbed in blue mason stain using a frit as a binder. On top of this, I randomly painted a cone 6 clear glaze I had created last year. The results are very interesting. Where the […]

Completed the firing and assemblage of the “Fire” lawn gnome. It’s a mess but the idea is clear. Finalizing the “water” sculpt over the next couple of weeks and then I’m open as to what comes next.

New Standing Figure

This is just using a red underglaze, applied in green and a second coat after bisque. The covered in a commercial clear glaze. Not too bad. I really like the standing figure that is somewhat abstracted. I tried out a dipped piece of cloth in slip cast material as well and it worked well . […]

Spent about 4 hours completing this figure in the studio. I’m getting a little stagnant on my efforts so decided to change it up a bit and allow the work to take on a heavier tone. This work I’m thinking about calling “wound”

I think the original intention was to do an actual figure of a man in a trench coat walking vigorously, but the  thing seemed too challenging so I broke it down into multiple parts for assembly. It’s time I think to regroup after this is completed and try again. My next work after this is […]

I think this took about 10 hours of effort in the build. The refinement process took the longest time. My biggest challenge was figuring out the overall structure the completed build. I decided to seal the top of the skirt, then do a cross shaped slab construct on the inside that would go from the […]
