Porcelain

I have worked with white stoneware clay for years but decided to try porcelain again having 'divorced' it many moons ago as we really did not get on with each other. I was pleasantly surprised how it stood up to being thrown with thinner walls than I can achieve with the stoneware and yet still be stretched without tearing or collapsing. Here is some of my recent work.

Black on White

These pots are glazed inside with a black satin glaze and the only glaze on the outside is in the cracks made by the use of sodium silicate suring the throwing process.

Blue on White

These pots had a blue slip applied prior to the sodium silicate during the throwing process. Once bisque fired, a deep blue glaze was poured on the inside and also over the blue slip on the outside. It was then wiped off yet remaining in the cracked texture. The white outer walls are unglazed.

Lilac Pink on White

These pots had a pale pinky-lilac slip applied prior to the sodium silicate during the throwing process. Once bisque fired, a pale lilac glaze was poured on the inside and also over the blue slip on the outside. It was then wiped off yet remaining in the cracked texture. The white outer walls are unglazed.
