Handles, Handles What to do!

Moulds – The Basics
This will be a series of 3 workshops, of which you would be welcome to attend all or just one or two sessions. The first one deals with humpmolds (to drape slabs over), the second with hollow moulds (for slumping slabs into or to be used for slipcasting), and the third will be about simple two piece moulds (for use in slipcasting or press moulding). Once you have mastered the 2 piece mould it is very easy to start making more complex shapes.

Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
This week, we are bringing you some tiles on which we fired the low-fire Crystaltex glazes (typically a cone 05 colorful spotted glaze series) all the way up to CONE 3. The effect is this lovely, fluid mutlicolor glaze that changes depending on which glaze you choose. How will they look at Cone 5? More fluid? Remember to always stilt your work or use soft brick when testing glazes outside of their firing range! Happy Testing! These CTL's in order from closest to furthest are CTL-9 Snapdragon, CTL-12 Mardi Gras, and CTL-71 Purple Blaze.

Dear Cape Pottery Supplies team Bella and I just wanted to say thank you so much again for your very generous donation of clay to our art project at At.Agnes in Woodstock, as well as firing all the work for us. It was a huge success and the classes were so much fun with the kids producing some beautiful ceramics. I have attached here a document with some photos of the classes as well as the final installation of the tiles. Thank you again for the support, with deep appreciation Daniella and Bella
