Cone 6 Reduction
My first clay club post! Here are some images from our last foray into cone 6 reduction at Claymakers in Durham, NC. As a studio, we are working towards converting over to firing cone 6 reduction regularly, and reducing (HA!) the number of our cone 9 reduction firings.
Shown are a few different shinos: Sprague Shino, Malcolm' Shino, and Carbon Trap Shino. All cone 9 reduction glazes, unaltered, fired to cone 6 in reduction. Another cone 9 glaze, Shaner's Red, works great with lots of variation. We have been working with our cone 6 palette as well. The tagine pic shows Panama Red and New Tyler Amber, with some Iron Rutile Wash brushed on top. The cup has Chinese Ash Slip applied over Carbon Trap Shino.
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.
