Fresh from the kiln: Dinner plates and Platters






Lots of plates from last week's glaze kiln. These are all Yixing clay covered in porcelain slip and underglaze. The top five images are 9 inch plate sets and the bottom two are 14-16 inch platters.  I've been very happy with the depth I'm getting out of an electric kiln at cone 6.

    1. Thanks Kyle, I've been finger swiping up a storm lately. Its been a fun way to draw faster and expose the beautiful Yixing clay underneath the slip. Hope you have a good Labor Day holiday.

    1. Kyle, cone six is great. Less energy to fire and if you do the research you can get the same depth as cone 10. The other great thing is that computer controllers are now really reliable and easy. I think you will love the digital skutt. We have the 1227 and the 818 in the studio and we use them daily. What are you going to get?

      Have a good week.

  3. I like the geometry juxtaposed against your dogwoods, especially the first plates.

    1. Thanks Matt,
      Glad you like the plates and the podcast. I'm about to start interview a group of musicians for the next few episodes. Looking forward to adding a little variety to the podcast.

      Hope you had a good holiday.

  6. Great plates! The 1227 is what I am getting for my class. I figure it should be able to keep up with my work and 65-70 high school students. I also have been enjoying the podcasts! Keep 'em coming!
