Hey Youtubers, what is up! Today is a snow day, you can see all the pretty snow outside and because of the snow I get the day off work. I am a school councilor and so I thought I would make some videos today and I wanted to show you some new things that just came out of the kiln.
Let us look at this first piece. This is the piece that I made a while back and I do have a video of me doing this piece. It is made with two different clays, the bottom is a B3 brown and the top is porcelain. As you can see when I do the piece I let some of that brown clay come up on the top and then I used the trim tool and cut a carve away some of the slip to make a stripes. I told you guys that I would post this after it was fired because we are wondering if the porcelain would separate from the B3 brown because the porcelain might shrink to a different rate. But surprisingly it is really stock together and it looks really good. So I am going to cover that with a clear coat and so I will show you that when it is done.
The other thing that I wanted to show you guys is in one of my other videos I demonstrated staining these little pots with the B3 brown clay raw water that actually came from this pot. And I wanted to show how those came out. They came out surprisingly different than what I expected. If you look at my other video, you will see that those are stained much darker and the firing process eliminated a lot of the colors from the B3 brown and just left some of the highlight. But I still think they came out kind of nifty. These now have a clear coat on them. This one has the back clay and it has porcelains and then I fired back and then I dipped it in the Brown B3 and clear coated it and then refired it. And on the lid, let me show you the inside of the lid. Okay, if you see the inside of that lid, see that, that is what the pot looks like before they were fired. This does not have any of the clays on it, it is just the bisqueware. And that is what it looked like before they were fired and this is what they look like after they are fired.
So as you can see, a lot of that B3 brown clay just kind of disappeared in the firing process, so that is kind of interesting. Alright, so I think I am going to the studio and do some throwing, maybe this is all for today and I will catch you guys on the flip side. Adios.
