Indian Clay Cup – Chai Pilgrimage. Chai from a clay cup — that raw, astringent taste of earth, mixed with gingery-sweet-milky tea — is the taste of India.

Indian Clay Cup – Chai Pilgrimage

An Indian adventure would be incomplete without the experience of sipping chai at an open-air chai stall and the gratifying, childlike pleasure that comes with tossing your single-use clay cup and hearing it POP as you watch it hit the ground and break into bits. Potters spin these small cups out of local river clay. The cups are sun-dried, half-baked in an open fire and delivered to nearby chai stalls. Chai wallahs customarily tap the bottom of the unglazed cup to dislodge any traces of dirt before pouring the chai. Clay Firing Process. Many potters, especially beginners, use prepared clays without much thought.

Clay Firing Process

However, there comes a point when it is useful to understand the process that clay goes through during drying and firing. This can help troubleshoot many of the problems you experience with your pieces. Plus it is darn interesting! Air Dry Clay Wet clay contains a large amount of water, a minimum of 25%, actually.

For years I have been taking your stories and writing them in stone. A special story to a loved one from a loved one; A time of meeting...or departing. A special meeting of Soul Mates; A special expression of you. A prayer; A special experienced memory from you, in story form, written on stone, in gold, silver or copper, and transformed in fire. A hidden language, written from your heart and preserved in time. Official Site Of Chris Baskin. Statements.

Many people use a certain temperature (Cone number) for bisque firings, because of habit but not because they have thought about it.

Choosing a Bisque Temperature

So what are the various factors to consider in deciding how hot to bisque fire your ware? The strategies involved in low fire and high fire are actually opposite. Low Fire: In low fire, the bisque temperature is usually hotter than the firing temperature. For example, most commercial glazes recommend bisque firing to Cone 04, and glaze firing to Cone 06 (which is cooler). The reason for this is to make sure all the carbon and other materials in the clay burn out during the bisque firing. Fire and Earth - The Tibetan Blackware Pottery.

Stage 1: Readings and Visual Diagrams This first category of learning methods, and the first stage in teaching throwing, is often ignored by the teacher because it takes work up front, and as educators we’re already buried in paperwork! However, the extra time used for preparation pays off and the students will be quicker to meet you half way. A worksheet designed to address all the critical points associated with habit forming for wheel throwing technique helps. I always begin by asking the students to read the worksheet through and I then present them with several questions to make sure they have read it. Any worksheet that addresses frequently asked questions can be used as a reference point by the students and ultimately make your job easier.

The Last Iranian woman potter using an ancient technique. 1/2 hr video. In April 2011, we (Patty and Morty) received an e-mail from Javad Mehrbannia from Iran, who holds a B.A degree in archaeology, asking if we were interested to see a documentary he had put together about a potter woman in Iran and her ancient techniques. A few weeks later, we received his DVD documenting what we believe is the way pottery was done thousands of years ago. Javad excitedly asked in further emails if we had received the DVD, what we thought of it and if we were willing to show the content to our students.

Javad, who is related to the woman potter, Nana Soghra, was concerned that this ancient pottery method would disappear without an opportunity for future generations to see it and after watching his DVD with fascination, we agreed with Javad.
