Using thick slip as a decorative device is an exciting way to retain the appearance of malleability in a finished fired work. In today’s video, Steven Hill demonstrates his slip decoration process, and explains how it informs his glazing process.
When it comes to rich organic surfaces, no one matches the sprayed glazing techniques of Steven Hill. Through a process of layering slips, base glazes, cover glazes and accents, he elevates glazing to a highly sophisticated level. In this DVD, Steven leads you through the entire process for getting spectacular glaze results at cone 6.
Steven Hill points out in today’s post (an excerpt from the March 2012 issue of Ceramics Monthly) that firing to cone 6 in an electric kiln does not mean you can’t get beautiful atmospheric-like results. Read on to discover how Steven makes it happen (and for some glaze recipes!).
