Posted 14 Apr 2013bciskepottery,
thanks for those links. I discovered that Hsi-Mei, the teacher of Elizabeth Priddy, is teaching classes here in VA. I am looking into taking from her. When I started working in clay I would use underglaze to create the blue line work look It doesn't work to well. I am now experimenting with oxides.
Posted 14 Apr 2013I used a green, I think it was called celadon. I put a clear glaze on top. I wasn't impressed with the results. I used a lot of the wash and it seemed to fade. This was at cone 6 on white stone ware. I didn't think to use it with out a top glaze, may try that.
mregecko has much better looking results than I did.

I don't reclaim my clay because it's typically cheap enough to buy new as needed, I don't have a pugmill or any of that which I feel is really necessary to get a good batch of consistant clay, hand doing it I don't feel quite makes the grade.
I prefer my clay to be all the same consistancy, pliability and the same box to box as I use it in a model, I don't like re-using scrapings and scraps scooped out of the back to hollow a sculpture, because they will be firmer and have a different consistancy that causes issues when adding it to a model in the works and then running into soft/hard spots.
That's the drawback reusing it along with new clay, they will never be exactly the same consistancy throughout unless you run it all thru a machine or do a heck of a lot of work!
Wow! I wish I could afford not to recycle. I'm still new at throwing and recycle about 50% of everything I make. I'd be happy to give the used clay away!
Posted 6 Apr 2013My favorite supplier is Axner. The only thing I can buy local is clay, on a good day. I also like Bailey and a couple of others.
