Okay, I'm going to add a coat of glaze on top of the NOTNSP mug and refire. Since it's fired to Cone 6, hoping the original glazes don't run. This is a somewhat risky move, but I'd like it to have more contrast in color. Keeping my tikis crossed.

Fingers are crossed. Spent some time in the studio today and decided to add some glaze to the Art Swap mug. To get the new glaze to "stick," I heard it helped to heat it up first (many people use home ovens for this). I didn't have an oven lying around, but it was a nice warm day here, so outside (in the sun) would have to do. The top of the car seemed as good a place as any (inside may have been better)...

After a while I added three layers of glaze (one lime green, two light blue), and now we wait to see what happens..... Hoping it will get fired soon.

STAGE FIVE:

The puffer comes closer for a look, as a school of fishes hover nearby.


Since Jason's work is multi-purpose, I'm a gonna do that TOO!
You can hang it on a wall:


OR, it can be a tasty treat!


...OK, not so much multi-purpose.

Zero - brilliant innovation on the multi-purpose front... you are a genius

everything is looking good... wonder if anyone else might jump in to the swap. After all, there is a month left... plenty of time to whip up an art swap piece. Perhaps everyone can nudge a TC friend to consider joining?

Peace,
Jason <><

Here is the first published photo of my art swap piece. I borrowed the image, but enlarged to a 14" x 18", canvas board. Detailing is still in process, but I didn't want to wait to show you all any longer.



I'm looking forward to this swap!

Aloha!

I thought I was going to run out of time, but today I was home alone and cranked out three hand-built mugs.

I did a tall mermaid mug using a press mold for the upper half, a second slightly smaller and wider mug with a seahorse design, and a shorter third mug with a Tangaroa head.

I used a different clay this time that my wife had bought for an abandoned project -- G-Mix 6 Stoneware -- which is a medium range stoneware that says it should be bisque fired at cone 04 and glaze fired at cone 6. Never used this before, but we'll see how it goes.

That should probably be cone 06 if it's a cone 04 bisque fire, Tom. Cone 6 is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY hotter than cone 06.

Nice job, Grasshopper.

Almost completed - just need to fit a wire, hopefully conversion to local power will be easy (i've converted US to UK with no problems thus far - unfortunately never had the forsight to keep hold of the fittings)
