TOP POSTS

These are some of my used cones from last year. They're placed in the kiln for each firing and tell me exactly how hot the kiln is, when nearing its top temperature of 1280 degrees. I have a feeling that my collection of cones for this year will be considerably larger, thanks to all you lovely folk. XOX #lunaceramics #cone9 #stonewarepottery #studio #potter

another case of " I have no idea which glazes I used so oh well." P sure @chrisdenas wound up with this extra-special-one-of-a-kind-dude ✌🏻

Never had a result like this before. My standard BMix clay with my standard woodash glaze and something from the reduction in this firing gave me lovely lightning on some of my surfaces. No adverse effects. #cone9 #asartoriusceramics #saltfiredpottery #woodashglaze #lightning

-- #LiddedPotwithHandle, #stoneware, 12” h x 8” dia, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. This pot represents an effort to further push my creative boundaries—hard for an engineer! So, what’s the answer to the question, “But what’s it used for?”. Maybe it is just something nice to look at. #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9

--#TEAPOT, #stoneware, 6.5” h (+handle) x 5” dia, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. This is one of several teapots that survived from 1980. Too bad they are mostly used for decoration since they are very functional. #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9

--#VASE, #stoneware, 10” h x 5” d, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. I like to throw with a minimum of water, especially for tall pots like this. My inspiration was an article on “Dry Throwing” by James Fox in Ceramics Monthly of October, 1973. It’s not completely without water; I use it for centering, opening, and the first pull or so, but then go without except perhaps for the tip of a wet sponge on the outside and a wet chamois to finish the rim. I see good throwers quickly pulling tall pots with lots of water (and I’m jealous), but I’m not that good and this works for me. The video by #WhitneySmithPottery.com at https://vimeo.com/3812242 is a good representation of what I also do. #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9, #drythrowing

--#SERVINGBOWL, #stoneware, 3.5” h x 8.5” d, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. Even though it was just a hobby, I was making lots of pots in 1980. This bowl represents a lot of good things about that work. All the things I try to pay attention to were right: weight for its size and intended purpose, ratio of height to diameter, ratio of foot to rim diameters, shape of the foot and rim, inside curvature and smoothness for a serving spoon, and lastly, glaze coverage and maturity. I hate it when everything else is just right with a pot, but the last thing (the glazing) goes wrong. #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9

--#STACKINGBOWLS, #stoneware, 5” h x 12.5” d to 3” h x 6.5” d, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. My wife and I had early matrimonial mismatched stacking bowls, until I made this set of stoneware bowls. All four still survive! Each time we use them I invoke a little prayer, “Please God, don’t prove the pottery half-life theory with these bowls and take one of them from me.” #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9

--#PUNCHBOWL, #stoneware, 9.5” h x 12.5” d, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. This may be one of the first pieces I made with an attached thrown foot. I also remember making lots of matching punch cups but must have sold them all with other bowls! #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9

-- #BUCKET, #stoneware, 12 h x 8” dia, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. This handle was one of my first efforts with clay extrusion--using an extruder made from an old style car bumper jack, a 4-inch pipe, and custom cut dies, etc. #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9, #clayextruder

We fired the kiln today, it eventually got to 1252*c. Will need a little bit of work on the cover then it should be good for cone 9. #ryallhillresidencies #firingthekiln #ryall #cone9

Great results from the gas kiln!!! Lots of green with some blushing form the oribe. I also fired a load in my electric kiln (also cone 10) and have a bisque firing currently to get one more glaze load tomorrow. Lots of work for the Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair this weekend!

My favourite pot from today's kiln opening. Very warm colour from titanium glaze blushed by adjacent chrome green teapot. Happy accident - I will try to repeat it!

--#COFFEEPOT, #stoneware, 8” h x 9” w 5.5” d, reduction fired to cone 9, 1980. Amazingly, the fragile spout of this pot remains unbroken after 37 years. This seems to defy my “pottery half-life” theory, which is that half of my remaining pots will be broken every 10 years (starting with some of my favorites). #pottery #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter, #cone9, #cone9glaze

-- #PITCHER, #stoneware, 9” h x 8” w x 6 “d, reduction fired to #cone9, 1980. This pot represents a pivotal time in my pottery hobby. I had rejoined the Allegany Area Art Alliance (#AAAA) after returning to #Cumberland, MD and was selected to be a featured artist at their “Evening of Art”. For that show I significantly expanded my boundaries of pottery design and surface treatment. This was the beginning of what I call my “early prolific period”! #pottery, #functionalpottery, #ceramics, #functionalceramics, #reductionfiring, #reductionfired, #potter, #Pittsburghpotter

Lots of things to learn about ceramics: calculating drying shrinkage, ignition loss, seger formula, reading about the history of the potter's wheel, the characteristics of clay and kaolin, how to create an own glaze, change raw materials for better results, different types of kiln and firings. Being a potter is such a complex profession. And the german society is being abandoned from the knowledge of thousands of years. Instead people go to buy cheap pots at big Swedish interior stores.
There are a few who make a change. And we start today.

Here is a dish from the last firing with my hand on it for scale. The glaze decoration uses wax resist. A photo of the unfired decoration featured in an earlier post.
