I think I’m becoming a bucket and container hoarder
I worked in a busy contemporary pottery studio for almost 5 years. I took home a bucket every time we finished off 5 gallons of dipping overglaze…
So i asked my teacher and she said to put clear overglaze only over the areas with underglaze, so I did. and I am so worried it will die lol Do you think it will be okay ? thank you
Oh, I’ve never actually put underglazes OVER a glaze before, so I really don’t know what would happen. I would think it would either run with the glaze or burn right off, but I’m not sure. And I’ve never worked with overglazes before.
Did you already fire the piece once? And now you’re firing it again?
I’m sorry I’m not much help at all.
Can someone help this person out?
If the commercial glazes are Mayco/Amoco/Duncan, firing at cone 06 (I know a lot of schools fire at this temperature), you should have no problem. If you fire at 05, all the glazes may run a little but won’t “move” that much, and won’t burn off.
If you’re firing higher than that, I’m not much help; most of my experience is with TONS of commercial low-fire underglazes and overglazes. Good luck!
There need to be more pottery gifsets.
I just made a pot pot.
……oh yes I did.
Can this be used to store pots.

Potato Kiln & Yellow Pages Kiln!
…I am most intrigued by the potato kiln.
Is…is this an edible kiln? Will I have a delicious potato to eat in the bowl I just fired? :0
Way to make me feel inadequate with a paintbrush.
There is no greater temptress than a kiln ALMOST BUT NOT QUITE cool enough to open. #pottery
The most true statement ever tumbled
*checks 5 minutes later* Surely it’s cooled off by now.
*checks 10 minutes later* Now.
*checks 15 minutes later* Dammit.
So, how’s everyone else’s day going?
What I hate is you can’t even crumple the whole thing up and huck it In the trash.
You just have to despair at it for a while.
Anyone else get antsy waiting for the kiln to cool down enough to open it?
It’s the only reason I miss printmaking; same feeling but pulling a print is faster. :)
