Ceramics

This thread is about Ceramics and for you who don't know it ceramics is a art where you make stuff with clay and i been taking ceramics since my freshman year and i will explain how it gos and show you pictures of some i made.

There's all kinds of projects you can make like masks, coil pots, tea cups, vases, ect and after you fire them in the kiln they become bisque ware where it becomes a pinkish color depending on the clay you fired. and that is when you glaze it and glazing is when you either dip the piece in a bucket of glaze or paint the glaze on. you mainly dip if you are using cone-5 or cone-10 or raku and painting when you use low-fire glaze and oxides, also some glazes turn out different colors aftering firing since if you put something that looks grey on your piece it might be blue but the glazes already say what color they will end up like so dont be surprised if it doesnt look like the color when your painting the glaze on, I'll explain what each glaze is like.

Cone-5: cone-5 is where you dip the project in and you must not get any on the bottom of the piece or it will stick inside the kiln when firing and it becomes glass like after fired and it is food safe so you cane at out of it if you made a cup or cerial bowl and you can cook with it too like in the microwave or oven and can use in the dishwasher. cone-10 is sorta the same but you gotta use a cone-10 clay with it since it's different firing using cone-10, i dont know much about cone-10 yet but i should be food safe too.

Low-fire: low-fire glaze is when you paint on the project and you can get any on the bottom either or it will stick in the kiln. and after firing it gets a bright pretty color and to get that you must put on 2-3 coats of glaze and if you use something called underglaze then you must put a clear glaze on top of it. this glaze is not food safe so dont get any ideas eating out of it.

Oxides: oxides is also when you paint on the glaze but you can paint on the bottom on the piece since it wont stick because it doesnt have the chemicals that do that and oxides is pretty much just a stain on your piece after firing since when you paint it on like you used a black color it will look the same after being fired and with oxides you sorta do a water-painting way when doing it, this is not food safe either.

Raku: raku was originally done in Japan and i believe it is suppose to mean "Realaxing" and they do some kind of tea ceremony there but here we do it differently because this man when he first did raku in America he read the instructions wrong so in his college class he had people do it all differently but for the way he did it our way of raku has it's on unique look. you dip your project in the glaze like cone-5 but dont get any on the bottom and you dont fire this in the kiln but you put it outside in a pit and put big cement bucket on it (i dunno what its called) and after it's time you pull up the bucket and put the projects on some pieces of paper to catch on fire then you put a metal bucket on in to keep the fire in then put a wet towel on it and this firing gos faster then the kiln firing, after it is finished it will have a unique metalic look and the clay on the botton will become black, this is not food safe either.

and now to show the projects i made (i might upload more), and i am entering this ceramic contest with this coil pot i made thats in the raku collection of my pics (be easier if we have the spoiler option)

and one more thing when it is finished i made the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Ganon in ceramics and after he is done firing from the glaze firing i will show him

cone-5 collection:

my tea cup


low-fire collection:

I took clay design alot in high school. Its one of the better art classes i took.
I usually over glaze and the thing i made sticks to the shelf in the kilm lol.

I made an alien coin bank, a bird house, and multiple other things like coil bowls, boxes, a mask, and whistles
