And ceramic tile isn’t just flat; handmade ceramic tiles can be relief surfaces that are quite complex—but you would be surprised to learn how easy it can be to make your own. In fact, you can make a ceramic tile mold that has a lot of relief so you can quickly reproduce a complex design without having to carve each tile individually. It all starts with ceramic tile design—and good design starts at the end; considering the end result of a ceramic tile project before any tile is made will help you choose the clay and the tools to use. And the experts we’ve chosen to walk you through the process of making and installing your own handmade ceramic tiles have all the information you will need to stay on track.

DVD – Beginning to Throw on the Potters Wheel with Robin Hopper. Beginning with wedging, Robin discusses the importance of finding a rhythm from the preparation of the clay to working on the wheel.

DVD – Beginning to Throw on the Potters Wheel with Robin Hopper

Many potters fail in their early attempts at throwing because they did a poor job of preparing the clay. Hopper then discusses the importance of the workspace and the tools you’ll need and their function. After wedging, centering is the next most critical stage. Many potters learn to center incorrectly, although some are successful in spite of their poor form—they just use a lot of energy and strain their joints. Robin demonstrates centering using brain instead of brawn, and gets you to actually throwing instead of spending many minutes watching your hands wobble around the wheel with a lump of off center clay. Robin next describes the process for creating cylinders since this form is the basis for almost every other form. Feathering vertical pottery. Google Traduction. 85.

Lifting the Walls If all has been done correctly up to this point, you are at what is called the doughnut stage, ready to begin lifting the walls. Hold both hands as you would to shake hands with someone. Bring them together, and cross and lock your thumbs together, creating what we call the caliper position.

Bend your fingertips slightly inward. If you bend them too much you will rake clay off the surface, and if you bend them too little you will be working with the flats of your fingers and will have little control.

Click to enlarge My favorite pottery surface designs involve textures created by carving directly into a piece after it’s been formed.

Lately, as an alternative, I’ve been experimenting with carving my designs onto block printing material, a flexible eraser-like material that won’t crumble, crack or break. In this way, I can test and polish my design choice before I apply it to the clay, and at the same time create a reusable design tool. Block printing materials are readily available in arts and craft stores or online. There are several sizes and depths of blocks available from which to choose depending on your design (figure 1). To begin, purchase three gouges of varying shapes as often one will not be sufficient. Decisions, Decisions The first step to carving the stamp is to decide on your specific design.

There are several ways to work the design onto the surface of the block. Line up your design face down on top of the block surface.

DVD – Advanced Throwing: Extended and Altered Forms with Robin Hopper

The techniques Robin describe aren’t difficult and provide many opportunities not only for bowls and mugs but also platters. For example, once you’ve mastered how to square a bowl, he then demonstrates how to square a sphere, which is much more challenging. But can you imagine the opportunities you’ll have when you can successfully square a pot? This may be all you need to get away from the usual round pots you’ve grown comfortable but bored with. Robin concludes the session by making a footed parabolic bottle that’s a sculptural form combining both the extending and altering techniques.

Layers of Color

Through color, imagery, and form, I hope to create pots that are expressive and inviting. I am fascinated how we personalize and define ourselves through the objects we use and accumulate. The clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the things we decorate and furnish our homes with – all of these objects reflect our personality and aesthetic proclivities both publicly and privately. I am interested in the phenomenon of how we look and shop for objects. TRAILER THE SUCCESSOR OF KAKIEMON. Pottery Video of the Week: Making Clay Prototypes for Mold Making and Slipcasting. 113.

Arts Céramiques quotidiennes - Les détails sur le papier autocollant pour Céramiques. There are three kinds of decal paper that can be used for just about any image: traditional, laser and Lazertran. All three types are applied using the water slide process, which consists of soaking the decal in water until it separates from the paper backing then sliding the image onto the surface (this will be demonstrated in Justin Rothshank’s video on Friday). The process varies with each type of decal paper.

Use the water-slide process to apply decals on already-fired glazed surfaces. Refire using the suggested temperature and firing schedule of the overglaze or china paint being used, usually Cone 023 – 018 depending on the color. Leave about 2 inches of space around and above the piece in the kiln to allow for fuming during firing. Traditional Decal PaperTraditional decal paper comes with a thin, gelatinous layer already on the paper, which appears as a shiny surface. These nonfiring, full-color decals are fairly durable with good image clarity.

Slabs, Templates, Texture, & Terra Sigilatta: Handbuilding and Surface Techniques

My reference to rural American architecture and antique rural implements places the viewer in a familiar setting which is layered with time, function and history while color creates celebration in these iconic objects. The vessel forms tie these objects back to the domestic space, enriching ones living environment while allowing for quiet contemplation and a reminder of a simpler time. The colors used refer to milk painted surfaces, layered and stained by generations of use and the elements and steel tacks are placed in the clay surface to give a direct connection to ideas of construction and joinery. The vessels relate to buckets, tool caddies, toolboxes, connecting the ritual of use back to the everyday, creating a connection to the importance of our most simple actions.

Start with a white low-fire slip so what is put on top becomes brighter. Apply an underglaze or wash over as a solid background color. Decorating the Surface On the surfaces of my pots I capture some of the qualities of the huipiles, which have a multitude of different patterns that work together visually. By situating regular slip-transferred patterns next to painterly marks, I emulate the contrast of the tight weave of fabric and hand-sewn decoration. With quick brush strokes, apply a deflocculated slip over the laser ink pattern. It is essential to layer the surface of a cup while the slab is still flat and wet. The underglaze or wash can be applied as a solid background color, a gradient, or a series of painterly strokes. All the pieces and parts of the cup are prepped, dry, and ready to assemble.

Then I print the inverse of the pattern using a laser printer on regular printer paper. Pottery Video of the Week: How to Make a Textured Soft Slab Wall Plate.
