Unpacking the recent Bisque firing in my small gas kiln. A great result, especially with two new Wild Clay batches. Very pleased.:)

The pots are starting to accumulate in the studio as we get ready for our upcoming home sale on July 21st and 22nd. Michael is having fun playing with texture on these vases. #bandanapottery #huntdalglishpottery #wildclay #woodfiredpottery #texture #shapes

Went out to collect and process our own #pottery #clay yesterday with my #livinghistory #club. This is me removing stones and detritus from the #wildclay. Thanks to @susielotta_stuff for taking the picture. #adelaide #southaustralia #oldschool #crafts #ceramics

A tea bowl, shino glaze, woodfired. 12 x 10 cm.
And here too, see, a little bit / that which can be good (the beholder)(who will hold?). As with the last: a pot it serves the function you give it, is it a bowl a cup? Do the flies eat the carcass, beware the carcass, show you there is a carcass; would you rather your protein from the carcass or the flies? And what would they?
Here is it's a teabowl (intended)(use it as a bowl ok; what it is not: the sides the inside angle much too acute to dig from with a spoon, the volume to little for anything but fingers; what it is: a lip for the lips, a foot for fingers to hold, an inside smooth to not wear down a tea whisk too quickly(they all wear down)and what I hope is contemplation. A bowl can serve tea it's much easier to make just a bowl)

Why do you like my posts why do I yours?

And this bowl (yes, a bowl) a glaze shino as in the previously posted, too of the same clay glaze kiln on the same shelf, fraternal twins as they are, and too different. This one in here it took the flame with it melted ash, the ash fluxed the glaze didn't make it run but did give color and more: crystals, though small.
Well. Ash induces crystals doesn't make them they're made (they're grown) in the cooling cycle as the glaze was melted then less then less now firm and then solid, along the way the metal oxides imparted by the wood (the wood it's wood and too so much more) and from the glaze and from the clay after the firing as it cools if to the right temperature at the right speed make this the crystals here spontaneously perhaps controllably I'm not that knowledgeable.

Too you can prepare crystallines I don't like them please prove me wrong, they are technically demanding good on you who have enough control I prefer to take credit for what the kiln gives, if you want to Make "crystalline glazes" it's a scheduled cooling and zinc oxide at a long enough time at a right enough (exact that is, not just enough) temperature the zinc grows makes crystals.

For those who learn its codes and its lore, the berber symbols convey ideas, history and contain a charm.

The #journeyproud crew and Joey Brackner along with the firing crew @pate2earth @susan.sinitiere @aliciafaciane @leighbancroft took another amazing walk through local ceramic and geological history at Ecor Rouge today. Look out for the show on APT this fall. #wildclay #ecorrouge #pbs #apt #pottery #documentary #fairhope #clay #geology #miocene @journeyproud

'Mud Rites' Wild masks

Explorations into art and the body (growing a second skin). New tests in progress using the raw materials of the making of the works as surface

Light and dark at their peak

Wild clay from a nearby farm 🌀 This clay was given to me to test if it's usable for making pots. It's quite dry at this stage so I will dry it out completely and then rehydrate and firm it up again. Then run tests on plasticity, shrinkage and absorption. Will it be able to withstand stoneware temperatures? This is all new ground for me but I have the world's new library (=internet) in my hand and am eager to learn. My first impression is that this clay may not be pure enough. If it's no good to use as a clay body it might still be valuable as a slip or glaze.... Exciting! #wildclay #eagertolearn

Needs some sand sieved out but it’s so pretty! #wildclay #covelo
