Posted 30 Jun 2012Thanks for the help! Does this look any better? I bought a backdrop off amazon. Do you think i should bring the black down more?
Much better! The fadingcould be higher or lower, atthis height it creates a line in the pots waist that might be bad for the experience of the pot. Personally I would like to se a soft soft shadow and maybe the camera a little heigher so that the rim is less a single line. Small changes so they might not make it apperently better.
Posted 27 Jun 2012Hi. You are not bisque firing hot enough. I use the Laguna B-mix and I had a similar problem, but it was with excessive pinholing. I finally solved it by bisque firing to cone 3 and glazing at Cone 6. (Yes, this cone 10 clay works great at Cone 6) It seems excessive, but it tested all the way from cone 05 up and finally got the pin holes to stop at bisque cone 3.
Sounds like you got a good solution. I can surly see why this would be and many clays have this problem more or less. If the pinholes appear directly after glazing you have a solution but if they appear first during the firing an option could be to fire the glaze kiln slower in the cone 05-1 range to fire out the organic material creating the holes.
With the crawling it really sounds like the oversaturation is the problem. I have that problem on raw glazed pots if the glaze if applied to soon. Lowering the amount of water in the glaze and bisquing higher is a option if the glaze doesn't become to thick. Another option is to bisque lower if the pieces doesn't fall apart when glazing.

Posted 18 Jun 2012I use organic stuff, like leaves, but mostly larger plants as decoration in the firing. I just wrap the pieces in the plant and fire, in oxidation or reduction. The result is a redish blush of the salts and a clear glaze at the stem (only a little). Different plants give different results but as a start the ones tha grow fast are generally better.
Posted 15 Jun 2012I would Hold for 20 – To give a more even temp distribution and I feel like heavy feldspar glazes develop with time.
