Pottery Video: Measuring Prints for Specific Forms | FORREST MIDDELTON

I am going to purchase the download of this Ceramics Arts Daily with Forrest Middleton. I am interested in learning more about silkscreen methods and I think this will be invaluable.

Glazing begins



I am beginning a glaze cycle today probably for next 2 weeks. Two different types of kiln. The majority into electric kilns and I have 2 other firings using a wood kiln. I want to locate a crazing slip to try on some of the wood fire pieces. This wood kiln doesn't deposit a lot of fly ash and so I am trying to figure what to apply to the surfaces of the pots to make use of what does fly their way. This wood fired teapot has a shino glaze and its tray was electric fired.

Form and Function with Hasegawa Natsu

Here is a youtube that shows the work of a young japanese potter Hasegawa Natsu
and her methods of work. At the 7:46 mark there is a display of her pieces presenting food. Wonderful, beautiful unity of form and function! And something that I am very interested in developing in my own work.
