Cone 10 Reduction: First finished pots at KCAI!

Filed under: Uncategorized — bowie croisant @ 10:15 pm

I finally got some pots glazed and fired.  I’m pretty happy with the initial results.  I began using a cone 6 version of Steven Hill’s Strontium Crystal Magic glaze near the end of my last semester at KSU, so I decided to continue working with this glaze now at cone 10.  Here is a picture of my faorite one:



  1. hi,
    ive just been looking through some of your work and think its amazing, im currently a student at Norwich University College Of The Arts, England, and am thinking about making some ceramics/vases/ pots, to represent caves or holes id love to have some tips about how to cast or create some basic shapes to get me going, or even on how to glaze as we dont have a ceramics expert at the school, i probabaly shouldnt leave you my email address on here but i will because im not sure if you will get it if not! id love to hear from you if you have time, thanks ,

  2. Hi, I am currently a ceramic student at KSU and I was wondering if you still had the recipe for the cone 6 version of Steven Hill’s Strontium Crystal Magic glaze and if you could e-mail the recipe to me, thanks, and I love the pots.

  3. I really enjoyed looking at your work! I am recently getting back into throwing and I am having difficulty creating my own personal aesthetic. Previously I had focused more on sculpture – it was really nice to get some ideas and to know that it can be good to have a ‘wonky’ piece… thanks again!
