Update, new pieces

Postby bearsbearsbears » Mar 15th, '10, 16:52

Hey TeaChatters,

It's been a few months since I posted here. Much of my time in the studio has been spent testing glazes. I got my hands on some local granite (from near Lake Arrowhead), and have been testing away.

I have made some new pieces since my last post. Here's one, a thrown and carved chawan, glazed in white with some blue and brown glaze accents.

The carving reminds me of paths going up the side of a cliff. It's hefty for its size at a solid 600g.

The "floating foot" is something I *ahem* borrowed from Cory Lum. It is a cool effect:

More pics below. You can see the "breaking" of the glaze in the detail pics, as well as how the iron clay "bled" threw the interior glaze, producing some interesting spotting.

Jason,

Just last night I was "shopping" on etsy and drooling over this bowl! It looks so very touchable...so smoothly rough or is it roughly smooth.

Wow 600g is hefty...could be a weapon in an emergency...martial arts and tea cross paths again!

Can't wait to see more!

Thanks so much for sharing,
Dreamer

Re: My Faux Yixing Attempt

The red stoneware has lots of soluble salts that come to the surface as the piece dries and fluxes the surface when it's fired. It's like self-glazing clay; on this piece, the effect is very exaggerated. You can see what the clay is like without this effect in the picture showing the skirt of the lid.

It pours beautifully, but I need to see if the clay is too porous when making tea. I look forward to testing it!

Nice, was this slab-built?

How big is it?
