Here's a pot out of the last firing and currently in the MudFire Gallery. This pot was made with Zella Stone, from Highwater Clays. It's covered with a Helmer Kaolin slip. The rim was waxed, and is simply bare clay. The black is comercial underglaze, Amaco LUG-1. The small little leaves are actually painted on commercial bright red underglaze, then outlined with the black. Not so red, but pretty friggin' nice, I think. This pot was raw glazed and single-fired to cone 10ish. Four pounds of salt put into the kiln starting at cone 7. Any questions?
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
