Inspirational Online Galleries By Helen Bates

In this column, I would like to share with you some inspirational websites. I have gathered some information about online exhibitions and galleries whose content deals to a large degree with the ceramic arts. The websites featured present some marvelous pieces of pottery and ceramic sculpture. Enjoy your visit and look for more inspirational ceramics websites and information at PMI Online at www.potterymaking.org.

The 12th Annual Strictly Functional Pottery National, 2004 (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) www.art-craftpa.com/sfpn.html The Strictly Functional Pottery National is a U.S. competition of functional pottery presented by the Market House Craft Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This year, over 1450 slides were received from more than 500 entrants. Juror, renowned potter, educator and author Susan Peterson, selected over a hundred pieces for the exhibition. She was instructed to remember the “ strictly functional” aspect of the show, and to choose a variety of styles, techniques, materials and firing ranges.

Ontario Crafts Council (Ontario, Canada) www.craft.on.ca The Ontario Crafts Council’ s online presence was designed by Lynne Heller, a craftsperson featured on the site. Each artist member of the website has a section in the “ Portfolio of Makers” to display a selection of pieces, give biographical information and a brief artist’ s statement. The “ Portfolio of Makers” can be searched by medium, region or maker. Click the “ Portfolio of Makers” tab, wait for the animation to load, then search by clicking the tab for choices.

Adobe Gallery (Santa Fe, New Mexico) www.adobegallery.com Alexander E. Anthony, Jr., opened the Adobe Gallery in 1978 to showcase and market Southwest Indian traditional art. The Native American pottery section is extensive. The site featured excellent 20th-century and contemporary pots, a selection of historical vessels, plus the occasional miniature piece, nacimientos (nativity scenes which first appeared in the late 1950s), storytellers and other figurines. The website is well designed and easy to navigate.

Silverhawk Online Exhibitions www.silverhawk.com The Silverhawk site features work from a variety of crafts media, and has an extensive list of functional and nonfunctional ceramics. Although it contains mostly U.S. artists, it also contains some information on artists and galleries from other parts of the world, particularly from Canada, the U.K. and Europe. The site provides artist’ s portfolios, gallery locations and juried online shows. You also can check listings by state from the “ Galleries” page, or check out the “ Artists Services” and “ Resources” pages.

HOW TO PULL

REALLY LONG HANDLES By Kathy Chamberlin

I have found that the addition of long, hand-pulled clay handles, along with the decorative knots, to my basket forms has helped me to develop my own personal style. The inspiration is derived from traditional Chinese and Japanese woven baskets. I hope my demonstration of this technique will help you to improve your handles and enhance your personal style. Currently, I am producing a series of baskets using bowl shapes and tall, cylindrical vessels. This is a method I have developed for pulling long handles and attaching them to my forms. The handle structure that I use closely resembles a catenary arch, a curve theoretically formed by hanging a perfectly fl exible and inextensible cord of uniform density and cross section, freely, from two fixed points. I work with a white stoneware and fire to Cone 10 in reduction, but the following steps could be used for any clay body or firing range. Each clay body will react differently and some experimentation will need to be done. It is very important to use a highly plastic clay so that the handles will maintain their integrity through all steps— pulling, shaping, drying and attaching. I use clay reprocessed from scraps, trimmings and throwing slip. This clay seems to have more plasticity, possibly because of the fine particles that have collected, the aging process and adequate water content. When pulling the handle, you need to make sure there are no air pockets, surface cracks, or hard and soft areas in the clay. Any problems will show up in the bisque or glaze firings, and the clay handles will not maintain their shape or integrity.

PULLING, FORMING

I throw two basic shapes for my baskets—cylinders from 8 inches to 12 inches tall, and bowls from 4 inches to 8 inches tall, each with a span up to 9 inches in diameter. With larger diameters, these handles have a tendency to distort or fall during firing.

I shape well-wedged clay into carrotlike forms for pulling the handles, making sure I have enough clay for the size of the handle I want to make. Extra clay will be needed in order to hold the clay while pulling the handle.

I hold the clay at the top with one hand while pulling the handle with the other. Using a continuous stroking motion, I wet my hand before each pull. I am compressing the clay with even pressure from top to bottom. The structure of your hand and its position during each pull will determine the handle’s shape. Practice will help you find the best position for your hand and the proper amount of pressure to apply. I use my thumb—stroking down the center of the handle—to define the shape of some of my handles.

I pull clay handles up to 30 inches long, let them hang straight down and dry very slowly. Drying time will depend on your local climate and environment. I do not recommend using direct sunlight, heat guns or fans to dry the handles. This can cause uneven drying and cracking during the shaping of the handle.

AND ATTACHING After the handles start to stiffen, they can be shaped into the desired curves. You will need to experiment to find the amount of time needed for your clay to dry before being shaped into the curved form. If it is too dry, it will crack, and if it is too wet, it will not hold its shape. I place mine over a wooden dowel rack (as pictured), but other curved items also can be used. It is important to continue drying the handle as evenly as possible. I test the clay by touch. It is ready to attach when the clay can hold its shape. The approximate time from pulling handles, shaping and attaching to a pot is about five hours.

When attaching clay handles, I build two level stands from bricks or blocks allowing me to work on the piece upside down. This will let the handle hang and retain its curve while I score, slip and fasten the ends to the basket. When adding my double-layer handles, I fasten the bottom layer to the inside of the form and the top layer to the outside. There is a limited window of working time for this step.

FINISHING AND FIRING I bisque fire the pots after they are completely dry. Instead of either dipping or pouring, I spray most of the glazes due to the fragile nature of the handles. I fire the pieces to Cone 10 in a reduction atmosphere.

I finish by adding decorative knots and cleaning the joined areas. Then I cover with plastic to dry upside down. After a few days, I turn the basket over, inspect and touch up any details, then turn upside down and cover again so it will dry slowly and evenly.

“Dr. Schmidt told me that he wanted an aquatic theme throughout the hospital wing. Because this area was designated as a play area for children, my students and I planned for the mobile to be colorful and magical. Our idea was to fill the space with the feeling of being in the ocean, looking up through water to the sunlight.”

In 2003, Dr. William Schmidt had a vision for the new children’ s wing of the Greenville Memorial Hospital System in Greenville, South Carolina. He proposed that my ceramics students and I build a clay “ fish” mobile to be hung in the activities play area for the new hospital wing. I had been teaching ceramics at the Fine Arts Center, a magnet high school for the visual and performing arts, for 15 years. Over those years, I had worked on seven large clay wall mural projects with students, but I had never tackled a project of this scale or complexity. I gladly accepted this challenge for both myself and for my students. It was a rare opportunity for my highschool students to be commissioned for an art work of this magnitude. It was also rare that all of the materials would be provided and that a $5,000 donation would be made to the Fine Arts Center, which would eventually be used to buy a new large oval kiln for our clay studio.

The Mobile

The project began with a visit to the construction site. I could not believe that we would have to fill the vast, open, round space that towered four stories high to a skylight roof. The actual mobile would only have to fill two stories. The second level had a semicircular glass wall that would allow the mobile to be viewed at eye level. The other half of the circular room would have a wall painted red. I was given the architectural plans and the color samples that would be used for the fl oor and walls.

The Construction

I chose to use a white earthenware body with a large amount of grog to reduce shrinkage and cracking. The color of the clay also matched the cream color paint sample that would be used in the room. We were able to match the fl oor and wall colors perfectly by using underglaze. This also allowed us to have the surface designs on both the sides and the edges of the fish. We began constructing the mobile by first building two schools of Angel and Queen Trigger fish. Making the fish became contagious and, before we knew it dance students, teachers, and other students began coming into the ceramics studio and asking if they could help. Over a period of five weeks we all became excited about the opportunity to work on a project that we hoped would give enjoyment to not only the hospitalized children, but to the doctors, nurses and staff. The aquatic forms were allowed to dry completely and then fired once to Cone 03 in an electric kiln. All of the pieces were sealed with three coats of professional grade tile sealant typically used to seal porous exterior tile. Any pieces that showed signs of cracking were destroyed. We could not allow any imperfection that might allow the clay to break loose. Originally, I purchased 500 pounds of clay to complete the mobile commission. Of that amount, we used about 350 pounds, and the largest forms, which measure almost 3 feet across, only weighed 13 pounds after drying and firing.

To begin, students brought in books about fish and chose the most unusually shaped species that could be found—everything from moray eels, to stingrays, to blowfish.

We photocopied our selections and enlarged them to make paper templates.

Clay was placed on the slab roller, flattened into 1⁄2-inch-thick slabs, and then turned over onto boards that were covered with newspaper.

We laid paper templates on the slabs and traced them with a needle tool. After cutting out the shapes with a fettling knife, they were dried to leather hard with a heat gun. The holes used to hang the forms were drilled 1–2 inches from the edge of the slabs while the clay was leather hard.

Page 16

The pattern design was painted on the leather-hard clay with underglaze, using three coats for the lighter colors and one or two for the darker colors. After one side was completed and dried with a heat gun, we turned it over and repeated the design on the other side and the edges.

The larger pieces—such as the dolphins, mermaids and stingrays—began with slabs that were 1 inch thick. Using the same construction methods as the smaller forms, the students had complete freedom to design shapes, surface patterns and color. All the holes used for hanging were reinforced with copper tubing.

Installation

For the two large stingrays, we added copper tubing to create the illusion of a tail. The tubing was pressed into the wet clay, removed, and small holes were drilled along the sides of the resulting groove. Holes also were drilled into the copper tubing to match those along the “spine” of the stingray. After firing the clay, we attached the tubing with both epoxy and copper wire to ensure that the tail would never come off.

July/August 2004

When the fish were finished, a design team from the hospital system came to the school and shot digital images of each one. With computer magic they were able to email me an image of how the pieces were going to look fl oating in the space. Jason and Scott Kraining of Optika Scenicworks, Inc. were hired to engineer the hanging of the mobile. They designed a round metal armature with airplane cable stretched into a grid pattern. The fish were hung with airplane cable, allowing the height and spacing of each piece to be adjusted. The installation lasted nine hours. The team rented machinery in order to reach the third story where the metal armature was mounted.

Final Comments In early May, 2003, my students and I, and Dr. Roy Fluhrer, our school director, were invited to attend the dedication of the children’ s activity area and to be interviewed during the Children’ s Miracle Network Telethon. The new wing is a beautiful, colorful and light space. There

are books, toys and computers for the children to use. There is a custommade semicircular fish tank with exotic fish swimming about. Hanging overhead, fl oats a ceramic ocean that my students and I hope will be enjoyed by children and their parents for years to come.

A CLEAN KILN

THE ELEMENTS

Are you keeping your kiln clean by frequently vacuuming out particles from bricks, clay, glazes and kiln wash? Thoroughly clean element channels, fl oor, shelves, lid top and the underside fl oor area (photo 1). If a kiln vent system is installed on the kiln, vacuum the motor area as well. Scrape and chip off glaze drips and cones that have fallen to the fl oor. Caution should be used when vacuuming, trying not to apply too much pressure to elements and brick edges with vacuum nozzle or brush. If a break, chip or large crack occurs in the bricks, a repair can be made by using kiln cement available at suppliers and dealers. You may have a choice of a wet premix or a dry mix. The dry will have a greater shelf life and can be mixed as needed. Do not get cement compound on the elements. (It’ s a good idea to wear a good protective mask during the cleaning and repair process.) Please note heat and air circulating inside the kiln will move dust particles around that can attach to glazed wares. Also, glaze drips are very damaging to the elements and bricks (photo 2). Heating, cooling and reheating will melt and spread glaze into the element channels, brick and kiln fl oor, making it worse. Kiln wash is also harmful to elements, so use caution when applying. Always apply kiln wash to shelves outside of the kiln chamber.

Are your elements sagging or bulging from channels (photo 3)? Do not press or push them back into place when they are cold. They are very brittle after several firings and will break. If you heat the elements to at least 1500– 1600° F they can be put back into place. This should be done by an experienced kiln repair person when it happens. Minimize damage to the elements by not waiting too long for repairs. Also, repairing an element will help prevent a cold area in the kiln. Element pins will help keep them in place. Note: Element life will vary in any kiln due to the type and length of firing. As the elements begin to age, firing times will begin to take longer and longer. Elements may begin to change shape (photo 4, page 20) while cool spots are more noticeable in the kiln. Longer firings can add cost to your electric bills. You may be better off planning to replace the elements and have a complete service done. If you decide to replace the elements, it is wise to replace any severely damaged bricks at the same time. These would be the ones that do not have a lip to support the element (photo 5, page 20). Clean out the element groove and vacuum prior to putting in the new element. This will provide a longer life span for the elements. Test fire the empty kiln to seat the new elements and seal the

coating of the wire when your service is complete. You should follow the manufacturer’s recommended first firing schedule.

THE KILN SITTER Do you regularly check the adjustments of the Kiln Sitter? This should be checked on a regular basis (every 20–25 firings) using a firing gauge. If adjustments are not correct, an overfiring (most common) or underfiring may occur. Check your operator’s manual for the correct procedure to follow. Also note, especially if you are high firing, that the sensing rod will burn away, causing a pointed end on the rod (photo 6). This makes the rod lighter, thus putting less pressure on the cone, requiring a higher temperature to bend the cone and allow the release of the trigger and shut off the kiln. If this occurs, the rod or tube assembly should be replaced in order to produce accurate firings and safe-

ly turn off the kiln when reaching the desired temperature. If the Kiln Sitter is equipped with a back up timer, you should learn to set the correct amount of time on the dial. Too much time may cause an overfiring if the cone does not deform properly and allow the trigger to release. Too little time on the timer will turn it off prior to reaching the amount of heatwork needed to bend the cone. Set the timer approximately 15–20 minutes longer than the firing should take. Several firings may be required to determine the correct amount of time for each firing profile.

CORDS, PLUGS

AND

RECEPTACLES

Do you periodically check your power cord(s), plug(s) and receptacle(s)? Check for burns from the cord touching the kiln case (metal shell) and any dry-rot cracks. Check the cord clamp for tightness and check that the power cord is not pulling

away from the switch box or the wall receptacle (photo 7). If the plug or receptacle shows signs of burning or charring, the receptacle wire connections may be loose. (photo 8, page 22) Caution must be considered here and should be corrected by an electrician. Note that any weak connection will heat up because of increased electric resistance and burn out with continual use of kiln (this may cause a fire.) This is why switch wires, element connections and switch-block connections always burn out (photo 9, page 22). These also should be checked for clean, tight connections. Any suspicious looking, burned or corroded wires and terminals should be changed.

THE KILN LID Do you use posts or kiln stilts for a lid prop? This causes wear and damage to the lid and top row of bricks. Use a softbrick wedge or add a metal kiln



lid prop kit to support the lid while venting during warming or cooling periods instead.

THE KILN CASE Do you periodically check the casetightening screws located on the outside of the kiln? These screws look like a hose clamp welded to the kiln case (photo 10, page 22). Tighten any that are loose. This keeps the kiln bricks pulled together and minimizes the body fl exing at the lid hinge brackets. Check the fl oor and lid bands for tightness. If the lid band is loose, you may need to remove all of the hinge hardware first before tightening the band. Some of the hardware and screws may need to be replaced due to corrosion. Be careful not to over tighten the screws as the welds may break loose. Periodic cleaning of the outside of the metal jacket and hardware can help prevent corrosion from occuring.

CONTROLLERS

6/29/04

AND

11:33 AM

PYROMETERS

Do you check the thermocouple(s) for your kilns equipped with an electronic controller? The thermocouple senses the kiln temperature to allow the controller to adjust power to the elements. Note: Some kilns may have a controller as well as a kiln sitter as a back up safety device. Thermocouples can be damaged by hitting them with the kiln shelves while loading or unloading or they can disintegrate from the constant exposure to heat (photo 11). Cracks may occur causing false readings and failure. A spare thermocouple should be kept on hand for this reason. Clean any carbon from the tip with a small wire brush. This will minimize any black specks spitting onto the shelves and ware. Pyrometers also use a thermocouple for sensing the temperature in the kiln and the same care must be taken.

KILN LOGBOOK Are you keeping a kiln logbook? A recording of each firing will help keep track of the number and type of firings, how long a firing may take, problems noted, repairs made, cleaning and preventive maintenance, etc. If your logbook also contains notes about the firing schedule, it will be easier to repeat the process in the future to obtain similiar results.

KILN AREA SAFETY Are you keeping the area around your kiln free of clutter? Think about safety here! This will help you when loading and unloading the kiln. Do not stack kiln shelves on the lid and avoid leaning them against the sides of the kiln. They retain heat and restrict air circulation around the kiln. Keep all combustibles away from the kiln area to reduce the chance of fire. Keep the 22 July/August 2004

Page 22

area clear of all unnecessary clutter to avoid tripping or falling against the kilns.

FINAL SUGGESTIONS If the aforementioned items are neglected, the life and effectiveness of the kiln may be greatly reduced. Take the time to protect this investment. Evaluate schedules and plan for a maintenance check up. Anyone can do these simple tasks. If you are a heavy user and fire frequently during the year, a checkup twice a year would be recommended. If your kiln is not equipped with a ventilation system, you should seriously consider doing so. Carbon monoxide exposure is not healthy for anyone. Element life will be prolonged, firings improved, better glaze color can be achieved and the cooling down period can be reduced. When selecting a replacement kiln or making your first purchase, you must know what electrical service you are providing to the kiln. It is very important to match it to the kiln. Residential is different than commercial service. A kiln should be placed in a climate controlled environment because humidity and dampness will negatively affect the electrical connections, circuit boards and metal hardware.

FANTASY CREATURES by Hanna Lore Hombordy

Do you need a change of pace, a diversion from your everyday routine?

change of pace

How about a relaxing project where clay, metal and glaze are combined in a single firing?

relaxing

All you will need is a kiln that fires to Cone 04, some clay that fires to the same temperature, miscellaneous metal pieces and low-fire glazes.

Begin by collecting an assortment of nails, screws, hooks, old utensils, machine parts and other odd metal parts. Stick to steel, or better yet, stainless steel. Nichrome wire or other high-fire wire is also okay. Do NOT use silver or silver plate, brass, copper or aluminum because they will melt in the kiln. Try to visualize the creatures you plan to make. Sketches and drawings will aid in the endeavor. Will you use slab-built (top right), handbuilt (middle right) or wheel-thrown (top left) sections? Will you need multiple body parts? Look over your collection of metal parts and decide which might make good legs, arms, noses, buttons and other decorative parts. Some pieces can be altered by using a bolt cutter, heavy duty pliers, a hacksaw or other similar tools. An example of this would be the use of a hacksaw to cut the handles off of old forks to be used as rabbit ears (bottom right). Pottery Making

Forming My pieces are made from a Cone 04â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 06 buff clay with sand added. Slab sections are formed with a rolling pin and cut out with a knife. Beginners may find an easy way to make a three dimensional handbuilt body is by pinching the clay into a half-shell form, being careful to leave thick edges for inserting the metal parts. A half-shell form also can be combined with a closed form. The first step in

making a closed form is to roll or pound out a thick, round slab of clay. Then crumple a paper towel into a ball and tie a string around it if needed (photo 1). Place the ball into the center of the clay and pinch and pull the clay up and over the paper ball (photo 2). Blend all edges together to create a fully enclosed shape of fairly even thickness and pinch off excess clay (photo 3). The paper will remain inside the creature and burn out during firing. Leave the form as is, or for a smoother silhouette, roll the form around between your hands or on a porous surface (photo 4). The clay can be shaped into a round ball or pressed into an irregular shape to fit your sculptural idea. If you prefer to use the wheel to throw closed forms, keep the walls thicker than usual, especially if metal legs will be inserted later. Trim the forms on the wheel or by hand with a metal rib or other tool. The thrown piece can be rolled around and reshaped just like the handbuilt one. The air trapped inside will support the clay shape.

5 After making all your clay body parts, set them aside until they are leather hard. When the clay is leather hard, join the pieces together. There are at least two ways to do this. A concave area can be carved out on one piece, scored and brushed with slip (photo 5). Score and brush the adjoining piece with slip and set it firmly into the cut form. Another method is to secure a metal post to one form, add slip, pierce the other section with the post and press the parts firmly together; allow time for the joined areas to stiffen (photo 6).

6

Note: At this point, pierce all of the enclosed areas with a needle tool to allow the trapped air to escape. If the air remains trapped during the drying and firing, it can cause the forms to crack or explode. These holes are best placed where glaze cannot clog them during the firing. Pottery Making

Adding Metal

Glazing

Don't use fragile metal pieces for supports such as legs. These supports may weaken during firing and you will end up with a sagging or collapsed creature. Reserve fragile metal pieces for decorative accents. When attaching nails, the clay should be firm enough to support the nail. Adding a bit of clay to the spot where the nail is to be inserted will help reinforce the connection. If the clay is too firm to easily push a nail in, don’ t force it, too much pressure may cause cracking. Instead, use a drill bit slightly smaller than the size of the nail and predrill a hole by twisting the bit with your fingers (photo 7). Then gently push in the nail. Some metal parts can be attached by first making a slit in the clay with a knife. Using screws is easy— merely screw them in. You also may want to predrill a hole when using screws. My favorite screws for legs are the roundheaded ones, as they level easily (photo 8). Facial features like a smiling mouth can be added by pressing the rim of a film can into the clay. Hole cutters, available in assorted

Glaze is brushed on after the creature is bone dry. Ready-mixed commercial glazes or engobes (slips) are convenient to use and are available in small jars. Three fl owing coats are recommended, each brushed in a different direction (photo 10). When glazing, interesting effects can result when two or more colors are overlapped. It is okay to brush over the joint where clay and metal meet.

10 In fact, this helps secure the parts to each other. Glaze will maintain its color where it is brushed on the clay, whereas glaze on metal generally takes on the dull burnt appearance of the metal. The work does not have to be glazed. Rolling the clay over a textured surface while still soft can provide a final look you might like without using glazes.

sizes, are great for representing eyes or other features. Tip: If getting the nails far enough into, (or an equal length into) the body is a concern, just mark the nails with a black marker before inserting them (photo 9). July/August 2004

As with all glaze firings, use a kiln shelf that has been brushed with kiln wash. Metal feet or other metal parts can be safely set on the kiln shelf since the firing temperature will be nowhere near the melting point of steel. It’ s best to position the metal parts 5– 6 inches away from the kiln elements if you’ re using an electric kiln. Small metal pieces do occasionally fl ake off during firing or cooling and if they land on the elements they can damage them. During the firing the clay will shrink and the metal will not. This makes for a strong connection but can cause stress to the clay. The parts need time to adjust to each other so a slower firing is preferred. Also consider that there has been no separate bisque firing. To compensate for this, I do the single firing very slowly, to about Cone 05– 04 and allow plenty of time for cooling.

OBSERVATIONS FROM MY FIRST CRAFT SHOW By Steven D. Lee

S

teven posted details of his first craft show on Clayart, a worldwide Internet pottery discussion group. I immediately wrote him to ask additional questions and to see if he would share his experiences with all of you. Not only did he have more words but he had great images from the day as well. I am pleased to bring you his account of a beginning potter’s first retail experience.

I recently exhibited at my first professional craft show— meaning I paid money for a 10×10-foot space in front of an elementary school. For four hours I attempted to persuade mothers and fathers to buy my pots. The experience really brought to focus several things of which I was not aware.

IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO SET UP A POTTERY DISPLAY. I tried to make my display simple and compartmentalized so that it could be set up and taken down easily. I used 35-gallon trash cans with 24×20-inch boards and smaller 1×1-foot boards that fit on top of the cans to make a tabletop. I had six of these set up in an L-shaped

—Chris Campbell

set up six tables and 85 pieces. When I tore it down at the end of the day, it took 45 minutes.

GIVE CUSTOMERS AN EASY WAY OUT OF YOUR BOOTH. I found that placing the tables in a C-shaped configuration tended to trap the customers into one area. They would have to wait for other customers or me to step out of the way to get out of my booth. When I switched to the L-shape with extra space in the front, I found that more people came in. More than half of the customers went to the back of the booth and preferred to look at pieces on the back tables.

KEEP AN EYE ON SMALL CHILDREN AND PETS AT ALL TIMES. No matter how stable you think the tables and shelves are, small children and dogs can dislodge and break pieces. I was vigilant whenever small children or people with pets entered my booth. Luckily, the only breakage occurred when a mother, who had just put lotion on her hands, decided to pick up one of my bigger pieces. She dropped it onto four other pieces, breaking or chipping five pieces in total. She offered to pay a small amount, but not enough to cover all of the items. configuration, draped in different shades of purple cloth. I used smaller boxes to create elevated areas on the tabletops to display my “ premier” pieces. Each trash can held the pieces that would be placed on that tabletop during transport. The pottery was wrapped well in thin foam and bubble wrap. Luckily, there was no breakage in the 35minute drive there. I thought setting up would take 30 minutes at most, but to my surprise, it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to 30

July/August 2004

PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS PLACED IN THEIR HANDS. I found that people would look at my business cards and the sign-up sheet for my holiday sale, but would not pick them up or touch them. I decided to personally hand out business cards and promote the sign-up sheet when people were showing signs they were ready to leave the booth. Most signed up on the mailing list, and everyone accepted the business card.

REASSURE PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN PICK UP THE PIECES AND HANDLE THEM. People need to have select pieces handed to them so they can touch and feel them. I had to repeat over and over again that each mug fits each person’ s hands a little differently. I would demonstrate where my fingers and thumbs left visible marks on some pieces. I encouraged them to lift pieces so they could feel the weight and shape of each item.

NETWORK WITH OTHER VENDORS. I talked with some of the other vendors, trading ideas or praising their work. I received two business proposals and several invitations to visit their stores and talk about placing some of my pottery in their shops or their presentations. Most of these offers were above and beyond my production capabilities, but I will follow up on a few of them.

SOMETIMES A GIFT OF POTTERY IS WORTH MORE THAN ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD. There were two college students spending a lot of time just looking at the pieces, so I approached them and started a conversation. I found out they had no money to spend on pottery at this time. I gave one of them a small 1- ounce jigger with a handle and that started a dialogue about how they were both interested in handcrafted work. They want to come to my next show and purchase some pottery.

Thrown, carved vase form, stoneware, Cone 6.

Another customer overheard this conversation and purchased the three pieces these two students were really interested in. It was one of the better sales of the day.

ALWAYS HAVE AN ANSWER READY FOR “WHAT CAN I USE THIS FOR?” Knowing that some of my pieces might not be self-evident in their use, I had several uses for all of them in my mind. One piece was so bizarre that the only use I could think of was as a place to keep jewelry when you remove

YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TALK TO STRANGERS ABOUT YOUR WORK.

Sound business practices are within the capabilities of any new potter. it each night. When I told this to a woman wearing a lot of jewelry she said, “ I thought that’ s what it was, but I just wanted to make sure.”

I enjoyed talking with people about the process of creating the pieces, the forming, glazing and firing— but when asked about why they should purchase one piece over another, I felt somewhat uncomfortable. I think several people looked at me kind of strangely when I told them to pick up the pieces and feel them, hold them, and try to connect with them. I told people that I was a beginning potter and each pot represented a journey from where I started. My best piece was thrown on a day when everything came together for me. I seriously considered not putting a price on it and telling everyone that it was not for sale. I finally gave in and put it out for sale.

I WOULD DO IT AGAIN. I think the audience of elementary school children and their parents might not be typical of most craft shows, but I learned a lot from the event. Just for the experience I would do it again. I think I will become more comfortable with selling as time goes on.

SLAB-BUILT FISH, NO WORMS NEEDED by Marj Peeler

Handbuilding with stoneware clay slabs is interesting, fun and challenging. Clay slab construction does not always have to become a pot or vessel. I really enjoy making fish from clay slabs. They can take on a variety of shapes, colors and patterns. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ve made and sold more clay fish than my fisherman husband ever caught. Try it, you might like it.

Technique for a Single-Slab Fish

BOBBY PIN TOOL Bobby pins are made of spring steel and can last for years as a tiny wire tool.

Take a round-bottom pot, turn it over and cover it with a paper towel. Gently press down your clay slab over the pot.

When the clay is able to hold its shape, cut out your fish. You also can add details, such as eyes and mouth.

On the back, add a small piece of clay with 2 or 3 round cuts, made from a small pipe or straw to use as a hanger.

Using different color underglazes, paint a bold design on the almost leatherhard clay.

Take a bobby pin tool (see sidebar), or a loop tool, and carve designs into your underglazed fish.

Support your slabs on something soft, and press and stroke a depression into each half with a rubber rib. Score the inside fins, tail and edges.

Apply slip to the scored areas and join the 3 slabs together. Put newspaper inside for support. Another set of hands may be needed for joining.

Bend, shape and carve your fins and tail to the desired shape. Remove the newspaper when the fish is stiff enough to stand on its base.

Add details, such as eyes, mouth and gill lines. Attach fins on either side near the gill line to help steady the fish. Pottery Making

Brush underglazes on the almost leatherhard clay. Use the bobby pin tool to incise your designs. Set the fish aside—make sure air can circulate underneath to completely dry the base. Bisque your fish, then coat with a clear glaze. Leave the bottom unglazed. This finished fish (15 inches in length) was fired to Cone 5 in an electric kiln.

TIP: Make sure to try different styles and shapes of fish. Look through books about fish at your local library or go to a pet store for ideas.

A Rainbow Footprint Mural By Craig Hinshaw

Toward the end of the school year Simonds Elementary School has a field day, a fun filled day with activities both in the school and on the school grounds. Classes of students, kindergarten through fifth grade, rotate every 20 minutes from one activity to the next. I directed the following clay activity, which resulted in a colorful, textured tile mural that now hangs in the school. When a class came to my art activity they were told to take off one of their shoes and inspect the sole for interesting textures and patterns, (most students wore tennis shoes). The students were given a golf-ballsize piece of clay and told to fl atten it to about 1⁄ 2 inch thick and then press the interesting part of the sole of their shoe into the soft clay. Next, they received a piece of poster board 4 inches square with a 2-inch square cut out of the middle. This frame was laid over the most interesting part of

yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Kindergartners received the first two colors of the rainbow, red and orange; the first grade used orange and yellow; the second grade had yellow and blue, etc. After the tiles dried, I brushed a clear coat over the top and fired them to Cone 04. The finished tiles were

glued to a 3⁄ 4-inch piece of plywood, which was framed with 1-inch wood stripping. Because the tiles were small and heavily textured, I did not grout the tiles. The finished mural hangs on a wall outside of the school cafeteria. The 288 tiles give students a lot to look at as they stand in line for lunch— but-

Glazing also was completed during the 20 minutes on the still-soft greenware. Each class of students received only two colors to brush on their 2inch-square tile. I had selected the underglaze colors to correspond with those of the rainbow; red, orange, Pottery Making

Bone China by Julia VanHuss

In the 18th century, Staffordshire potteries of England were most noted for earthenwares, but in the 19th century, Staffordshire became famous for its production of porcelain. In 1780, the great soft-paste factories of Chelsea, Bow and Worcester dominated the English porcelain industry, but by 1820 the center of English ceramic production had moved to Staffordshire. This remarkable transformation of the ceramic industry in England was due to the emergence of bone china.

ing in the kiln. They could be formed and worked to a thin gauge yet still retain their shape in the fire. As important as these factors were in the economical production of bone china, it was the appearance and durability of the body itself that placed bone china at the forefront of English porcelain production. English hard-paste porcelain of the 1780â&#x20AC;&#x2122; s had a grayish body while some English soft-paste products had a green or orange tinge. The hard-paste wares of the continent, such as Meissen, were white, but too brittle in appearance for the English. They preferred the beautifully decorated but fragile soft-paste porcelain of Sevres. Wedgewood creamwares in the classical style were popular and practical but lacked translucency. The English consumer was longing for something that was not only strong and durable but also elegant and pretty. The

There were several factors that made the manufacture of bone china suitable for production in Staffordshire. Bone chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s firing sequence was the same as the long established creamware production of Staffordshire that called for an initial high bisque firing followed by a low glaze firing. The ingredients of the paste itself were more readily available in the country. Ox bones, Cornish clay, Cornish stone and feldspar were products of the countryside not the towns or cities. Staffordshire labor had supplied many of the London firms, and when factories, such as Bow, closed, their workers went back home to Staffordshire and took their skills and familiarity with bone ash with them. The Staffordshire potters found that combinations of bone ash, china clay and china stone yielded a paste that was remarkably tolerant in the kiln and tolerant of variations in its formula. The addition of feldspar yielded a very fine white body suitable for an expensive decorative vase. A paste containing simple Cornish stone yielded a less fine china chamber pot. But both were equally forgiv42

demand for a product that was both rich in appearance and eminently practical was met by the emergence of a perfected bone china. The Spode factory is generally credited with perfecting bone china but it faced stiff competition as demonstrated by the two examples shown. The simple tea service by an unknown Staffordshire pottery was sparingly decorated with only a narrow red band and dates from the 1840s. A later tea service by the Royal Doulton Porcelain Company echoes the shapes of the earlier Staffordshire ware but is more elaborately and expensively decorated with coachmen scenes. Both are characteristic of the types of wares made available to a broad middle-class market by the development of English bone china.

Glaze Books: An Update By Sumi von Dassow

The subject of glaze formulation is a daunting one for many potters, thus, books clarifying the mystery of glazes are always in demand. It is of little surprise, then, that there have been several new glaze books introduced since the last time I wrote about them. Generally, there are two types of glaze books: theory/methodology books and recipe books. We all know we should be reading the theory books and making up our own unique and fabulous glazes, but most of us are guilty of reaching for the recipe books when we are in a crunch and need something new. Of course, the best compromise is to be willing to work with a borrowed formula when we need to, but still constantly test new formulations so that sooner or later we can produce a great glaze of our own. Anybody who has ever tried a recipe out of a book or magazine knows that the results are rarely the same for any two potters, so it is important to know about formulation in order to make a recipe work for you. Therefore, whether you prefer to formulate your own glazes or search for the perfect recipe, it’ s likely you’ ll need more than one book to satisfy your needs. This column features three general purpose books that will provide a starting point.

The Ceramic Glaze Handbook: Materials, Techniques, Formulas by Mark Burleson (Lark Books, Sterling Publishing Co., Inc., New York, NY 2001) If you are a true novice regarding glaze mixing, this is the book for you. As a teacher, I have been waiting for a resource like this to recommend to students when they first start asking where glazes come from. It explains what a glaze is and what materials are used to make them, including the function of oxides and the range of colors each oxide produces. The many full-color photographs of glaze samples illustrate the way oxides perform in different glazes at various temperatures and atmospheres, with and without opacifiers. Vocabulary is defined, such as glossy, satin and matt, with photographs of finished work. You will learn how to mix and test glazes, how to apply and fire glazes, and about glaze faults. Also covered are slips, underglazes, and lusters and overglazes. There are a few recipes, with photographs, for each temperature range. The one major drawback to this book is its inadequate information about material safety— though a careful reading of the text will tell you that barium is toxic and that barium glazes shouldn’ t be used on surfaces that will come in contact with food. The recipe section includes glazes with large amounts of barium with no warning about its toxicity. Likewise, a metallic glaze calling for large amounts of copper and manganese is listed with no comment. If you are just learning about glazes, consult with experienced potters or read more about material safety before using these recipes in production.

The Glaze Book by Stephen Murfitt (Krause Publications, Iola, WI 2002) This book is a collection of recipes, with minimal information about using, mixing or formulating glazes. What distinguishes it from other recipe books are the illustrations— each glaze is illustrated with a photograph of a test tile, and sprinkled throughout are photographs of finished work. While these illustrations may be helpful, experienced potters know that due to variations in the source of materials, firing temperatures and atmosphere, glazes often come out looking radically different for each individual potter. The book is divided into three sections: Earthenware, including majolica, raku and luster; Stoneware, including sodaware; and porcelain. The glazes are organized by color families, and both oxidation and reduction glazes are included. Some potters will be disappointed to find that there are no glazes in

the popular Cone 5– 6 range, though undoubtedly some of the stoneware or porcelain glazes could be modified to fire at a lower temperature. Each recipe includes a note indicating whether it should be used for domestic, decorative or sculptural ware, and notes about appropriate firing cycles and soak times. Be forewarned that the recipes often are somewhat unspecific, calling for “ potash feldspar” or “ alkaline frit,” rather than naming a specific feldspar or frit, while other recipes call for specific stains or commercial lusters.

Page 45

are aimed at experienced potters who already know the basics. For instance, the section on materials offers information about obscure materials such as rare earth and soluble colorants, along with articles about substitutions for gerstley borate or avoiding barium. The recipes section offers a variety of glazes for low and high temperatures, and oxidation and reduction. Many of the recipes call for materials, which, for different reasons, you

might want to avoid relying on. The techniques section includes a lot of recipes as well, with interesting ideas for their use. The nature of this book makes it a good one for browsing— there’ s no need to read it from front to back, and it’ s okay if you skip a section. It’ s great when you need inspiration, or just a new recipe. Sumi von Dassow teaches pottery at the Washington Heights Center for the Traditional Arts in Lakewood, CO. She can be reached by e-mail: sumi@well.com.

Glazes: Materials, Recipes and Techniques Edited by Anderson Turner (The American Ceramic Society, Westerville, OH 2004)

This book contains a collection of articles from Ceramics Monthly, PMI’ s sister publication. It is the latest in a justifiably popular series of books that gathers material on a particular subject and presents the best of the magazine’ s past articles to newer clay enthusiasts. In this book, Turner has arranged selected articles into three sections as indicated by the subtitle. This book combines technical information with recipes, making it the best of both worlds for many potters, though most of the articles
