Just in Time for Christmas!  I  November 14, 2016


New jewelry pieces are now available at Capitol Clay Arts Company, including this free-form pendant. Made of Standard 365 Porcelain, with a floral pattern, I applied Black underglaze all over then sanded raised areas to create contrast and added Clear glaze over all. The piece is wired in Argentium Silver with a trio of square onyx beads. $25.

New Glazes in Action! I June 29, 2016

Goodness! How did it get to be the end of June with no new posts?!? There’s lots of news to share: For instance, Mike has been experimenting with Coyote glazes introduced into our class program earlier this year. Check out his latest results:

Mike trio 1

  • Textured Bottle – Eggplant on Standard 240 White Stoneware; the glaze is green breaking blue and pink. Really pretty.
  • Textured Vase – Opal on Standard 365 Cone 6 Porcelain; love how the glaze pools deep blue in the crevices.
  • Textured Birdhouse – Desert Sage on Standard 240 White Stoneware; He sanded the glaze over some of the raised areas to produce more of the breaking red/brown color. 

If you haven’t experimented with these glazes yet, we heartily recommend them.
