Posted 26 May 2013Thanks, Mark, for the encouragement, and the information about plate thickness. I know what you mean about wanting to throw thin! But ai tend to like the solid, heavier pieces myself, somehow those pieces feel like handmade to me.
Posted 24 May 2013You could try stencils with an underglaze paint, but stencils always shift around on me. Maybe someone with more experience will come along soon!
Posted 24 May 2013Thank you for that explanation. 1973! I am 51, so if I live to 91, maybe I will know half as much! I regret so much that it took me so many years to find this.
Posted 23 May 2013Hi,
Have you thought about pressing letters in? I do that, either right on the cup, or I roll out some clay about 1/4 inch thick, press the plastic letters I bought into slab, cut the name out in a rectangle, and attach it to the cup when everything is still fairly wet.
I got my letters at AC Moore near the mosaic supplies.
Posted 23 May 2013Mark,
Those are beautiful - so perfect! Great workmanship.
Question: what are nubbins? And is slump when the plate bends? At what point in its creation does it slump?
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, all!
