Turned on my home made kick wheel.
Here is another new idea for this year. I am thinking of incorporating the torn clay into wall art . I have made enough bottles for a while with the torn clay method so,,, moving on. Still working on the easiest method of putting them together. If not for wall art i am sure i can make boxes to this idea as well.!!
Here is the latest pot with crackle terra. I have found that i have to set the crackle in at a higher temp. now and it seems as if it will produce good results
We started off our 3 week end exhibition this weekend. Our ceramic group ( Cuesta ) holds a yearly exhibition in an old farm that has been declared a protected monument .
Getting the sagger smoke better now. I was getting either no smoke in the crackle or to black. Seems better now. Have worked out that by opening the sagger when still very hot i can alter the effect by re oxidizing or adding more saw dust to the bottom of the sagger.
