Pottery Wheel Bowls by ssbbforeva Pottery Wheel Bowls by ssbbforeva

wheeeeeee, more creative titles and terrible photography! :icondummywooplz:


next to glazing, the pottery wheel proved to be my bane in ceramics, as you can probably see from the thickness of the blue bowl. each of these have varying thicknesses and sizes, as can be seen from the bottom-center photo.

for the red and white bowl, I first dipped the outside of the bowl in a white glaze, which tends to brown and spot in the kiln. then i poured a red glaze into the bowl, swirled it around, and poured it back out.

the blue and white bowl was made by first dipping the rim of the bowl in a blue glaze, then covering the whole thing with a clear glaze, which turns grey and also darkens the blue.

the light blue bowl was glazed by fusing wax to keep the designs separate from the rest of the colors, which turned out okay. the best part about the bowl is its bottom of green glass, which sparkles in person (curse you camera!)

Green glass bottom on the blue bowl has a interesting effect to it!:D
The thickness isn't that bad, it'll be fine as long as the thickness never goes past 1 in.~ (I think it doesn't cook fully when you basically bake the bowls...then if it is too thin it explodesXD)
They all turn out well, just maybe a tad lopsided at the base by the looks of the bottom middle picture. Which could possibly be fixed by setting the piece down on a hard flat surface before it is baked:}
Hehehehehe, don't know why, but the red and white one kind of reminds me of a upside mushroom cap:3

thanks! :D


that doesn't happen with stoneware :/ it only explodes if the piece has air bubbles, or if it still wet, and we avoid that by letting the pieces stand uncovered for 10 days. maybe you are thinking of a different type of clay.

the only one that is lopsided is the blue bowl, they probably look that way due to my inability to properly take a picture :slamhead: the shadows either don't show up or turn completely black.

Yes, I must bee thinking of a different one for sure, the one we used we had to let it dry for 3 days, and it liked to explode when it was too thin or had air bubbles:} Plus, it was a dark grey color before it is fried, then of course turns white after being fired~ Though I can't remember the name of the clayXS

It's fine, I think almost all cameras like to turn shadows black or magically make them disappear! Then again, one lopsided item can easily make it appear that other items to look lopsided even though they aren't lopsided at all~X3
