Though the name sounds a bit intimidating, photo lithography image transfer onto clay, is not a terribly difficult process. You just need to get a couple of tools that you might not have on hand, but once you do that, it’s a piece of cake. In today’s video, Kristina Bogdanov shows us how. Watch the video!
It Slices, It Dices! Some Simple Glaze Tests Reveal a Ceramic Glaze That Can Do it All (well, almost)
Kristina Bogdanov, who teaches at Ohio Wesleyan College in Delaware, Ohio, was intrigued when she realized that one of the class glazes seemed to fire well at cone 10 reduction in a gas kiln, cone 6 in an electric kiln, and cone 9 reduction in a soda kiln without any change in the recipe. So she ran the glaze through a battery of tests to see just how versatile it was. Today, in an excerpt from the 2010 Buyers Guide for Ceramic Arts, Kristina explains her testing process and the results.
