Pottery Boys Clay Studios artists Glenn Woods and Keith Herbrand sharing their studio experience in these blogs.
In this video, we review the glaze diagrams we create for each piece and then show samples of the glaze results. As ususal, some pieces did exactly what we had anticipated but others fell short - however, it is in reviewing these glaze diagrams that we are able to repeat results or learn what adjustments need to be made to achieve the desired results.
Check out the video below
As promised, here is the kiln opening for the Anniversary Series. We will do a follow-up video comparing the glaze instruction sheets to the finished pieces.
Let me know what you think - which one is your favorite and why.
Here is a video discussion of preparing for a glaze session
As I have said many times before, I am no longer making mugs but our life as a potters has come to a screeching halt since all of our art fairs have been cancelled through July. I am spending more time in the studio making smaller items and testing glazes however, I am throwing almost everything away that comes out of the kiln. Honestly, production has been very slow and as luck would have it our glazes have been misbehaving - not really sure what the actual culprit is yet. We are still working on the solution.
One of my friends (Mo Anderson) has been requesting a mug similar to what I used to make so many years ago and another crystalline artist friend (Holly McKeen) challenged me to explore the making of mugs using similar forms found in our larger pieces - interestingly enough, her suggestion takes me right back to the mug forms I was making so long ago.
So here they are - exploring a new and yet familiar form.
Let me know what you think.
