I wish I was back in pottery classes.
I haven’t completed anything since the last on that ended April 1st, and it’s so annoying having ideas and no outlet.
Plus it makes this blog really dead.:/
can be fired midfire as well. :) Also, that sounds like such…fantastic experience!!!
Yeah, haha, I know it can, I used to fire my cone 10 clay at midfire, but once I started a class my teacher started advising me against it.
Mainly because I make functional pieces and it doesn’t really become “food safe” at the lower temperatures, because the clay is still slightly porous. Also the glazes don’t match as well(I think at least^^).
But it’s not bothering me as much anymore, and I’m planning to do some in midrange soon on my porcelain.c:
It was fantastic! (sorry, I know this was probably late, I don’t get on this blog very frequently^^)
My parents manage a Japanese restaurant in Nashville and my mom met a customer who enjoys pottery, and he invited us out to his place in the country. So we spent quite a while over there today, trading turns for the wheel.
The only unpleasant thing was the wheel only spun counter clockwise, (the wrong way for me) but the guy was so unsympathetic I felt like I had to prove I could throw well both ways, and HAHA, I DID!
I only threw a few things, but it was a nice place and we had a nice time. I made a cup, a bowl and a pitcher, and while I’m content with the first two, the pitcher almost had an ‘accident’ because I don’t like how the handle turned out.
So! Depending on our visits there, you may see some new pieces from me soon.:D
