Posted 27 Oct 2012long story short. I have made arrangements to fire my cone 10 platters at another studio, using their glazes and kiln firing at cone 10. thank you for all the responses, if i am going to sell my work i want it to be the best for my customer. that is to fire cone 10 at cone 10.
Posted 27 Oct 2012Absorbency is measured using unglazed clay. You just fire the plain unglazed clay to temperature and then do the absorbency test.
Laguna says Soldate 60 has 2% absorbency at cone 10 and B-Mix 10 has 1.2% absorbency at cone 10. No data given for cone 6. Baltimore Clayworks, where I buy my clay, lists Soldate 60 with a range of cones 06 to 10 and B-Mix 10 with a range of cones 8 to 10.
Posted 29 Sep 2012Thank you Mark, your shelving plan gives me great ideas for a stable table top display of my pottery. I was using boards, new unused paint tins to place the boards on, i have been racking my brain, trying to think of a way to make shelving for on top of a 3 X 6 table. I have to make the most with this small space, height and stability is the issue.
Posted 25 Sep 2012thank you Mark for the quick response. Functional work with the intent to sell. I have two options for glazing cone 10, one is in the area, but his kiln will not be fixed until the new year the other is in Whistler, that will be a very expensive firing, hotel, food and firing.
Posted 25 Sep 2012The clay will not be as hard-no big deal unless you are selling it as its not fully vitrified .
Is this functional ware? for you or others?
I guess the glaze will fit ok but I have NEVER tried this.
i did spray glaze one of the pieces, it turned out beautiful cone 6. If it is not vitrified, does this mean it will break down in time with washing and usage?
