Posted 23 May 2013I don’t know, I think you just might be crazy enough to try it.

Posted 16 May 2013Thanks for your interest in my work
Its a ceramic glaze that I developed - and I fire somewhere between 1190 celcius up to 1300 degrees celcius- its all a matter of viscosity, size of holes in the containers, kiln size etc.
My coming experiments is trying to find a high viscous, low fired, glaze so I can do this at lower temperatures. And yes, I've also heard from glass people that this technique is well known in the glass world
I also tried with real glass in a ceramic container - looks wicked! - you can see more pics at my facebook page - like if you like www.facebook.com/csckeramik
Thanks for dropping in Christina, your work is great, nice to see something so innovative.
Posted 14 May 2013In the glass world this is called a pot melt, and is a good way to recycle scraps. You melt pieces of glass (often of mixed colors) in a pot with a hole in the bottom, the melting glass flows out and pools underneath creating a new sheet of glass that can be used for projects.
The impression I got from the artists video is that it took her a lot of experimentation with the glaze recipe to get it to melt and flow(viscosity) just right in the kiln.
Looks like it's cone 9 like oldlady said, but I would think you could do this at cone six or lower with the right recipe. Looks fun
Posted 28 Apr 2013Okay it all makes sense now.
I never considered entering one of those shows, seems a little odd to have to pay to be judged. If the show instantly put you on the map or had great cash prizes, maybe it's worth it, but I'd rather have customer feedback.
It depends. A lot of them are a waste of time and money but the good ones like Strictly Functional gets you into galleries and shows.
Good to know, I see they have a decent web site too.
