Shower Tile Progress - May 2009 This video shows the progress of our walk-in shower project. We are re-creating The Great Wave in 6" x 6" tiles that will cover 100 sq ft on two walls. At this point the black underglaze outlines of The Great Wave have been done. The tiles have been laid out on the floor to make any corrections betweem adjacent tiles. We will have these tiles fired to set the black. Then we will add the color underglazes and glaze, and fire again. When that is done, we will tile the walls.

Painting Napoleon's Cat Painting the biscuited ceramic piece with underglaze colours prior to firing to stoneware. Napoleon along with others, Mussolini, Genghis Khan, and Julius Caesar are reputed to have suffered from ailurophobia - the fear of cats - terror-struck by ***cats. Here we have Napoleon who has mistaken his cat for a hat and is just becoming aware of his mistake.

Fragment of 17th Century Blue & White Delft Vase C 1665 Dutch delft blue and white vase, late 17th century, decorated with scrolling flowers, underglaze blue mark GK possibly for Ghisbrecht Lambrechtse Krucyk or Crucyk 1666 at the "De Vergulde Boot" and "De Dessel in 1664, height: 2 1/2in. 6.5cm. condition: neck cut down, chips to base Dutch, circa 1665 Interestingly, this vase has strong Middle Eastern Iznik qualities in the sparing use of elongated foliage. The fine quality of the blue cobalt underglaze is evident in the richness of colour and its subtle variation. Although this vase no longer has its neck, it is none the less a fantastic example of early Dutch delft.
YELLOWMAN DREAMS OF TURQUOISE AND BLUEFIRE Yellowman Dreams of Turquoise and Blue-Fire is a distinctive one-of a kind ceramic vase with a collage of images from a dialogue in a dream to become a labour of love and passion over a period of five and a half years. There are three coats of underglaze over all its surface and up to twelve in some of the more detailed areas. This extraordinary piece stands 22 inches high by 10 inches width. The vase carries the power to move people to communicate using the images as a focal beginning point in the adventure of exploring the piece, in other words, a conversation piece. Some people suggest an eerie resemblance of the main character on the vase to the late Michael Jackson.......
August 18th at 8 pm EST Horsehair Firing "Live" with Michael Harbridge Discover how fun and easy it is to do horsehair firing. Michael will show you how to work with hand-built ware or cast items. Learn about creating a special underglaze blend with commercial underglazes like Cover Coats and ways to apply them to get gradual blends from one color to another. Polishing the underglaze is very important before firing in an electric kiln. The ware is removed from the kiln while it's still warm, but not too hot, and horsehair is touched to the surface to form intriguing permanent lines and patterns. What kinds of sealers will give you the best look? Michael will share tips of what works and what does not. It's a fun workshop for anyone of any age! Even if you can't make it for the live webinar, register anyway because the recording is FREE the very next day. Watch the recording over and over, pause, rewind and fast forward. It's a great tool for training employees or teaching a workshop. Or, just use it to follow along yourself.

Cups #148 & #149 Wheel Thrown ~ Underglazed & Woodfire Results Cup 86 Two More Cups & the woodfired Cup# 86 is finished! #148 was a fun one! I wanted to recreate what I like to call my little "window" technique..lol. The last time I tried this by drawing on a bisque cup with underglaze, but it became blurred when glaze was placed over it. This time I decided to use underglaze on the leatherhard cup first...we'll see what happens when it's fired. Cup #149 needs a shout out to Janicethepotter! Her most recent video on how to pull a handle just connected for me. Her explanations are perfectly clear and so easy for me to follow! It worked real well, unfortunately the battery ran out while making it, but I will definitely be practicing this more in future videos! Thanks for joining me and hope you enjoy today's clip! Thanks for watching! ~Tammy Jo

Cup 74 - Wheel thrown cup with underglaze & handbuilt handle...Fun! - Pottery Cups Another exciting cup for me! I'm starting to broaden my experiences just by walking my workshop. Feels like I've started a whole new adventure! ANOTHER AREA WHERE I COULD USE SOME INPUT! Since I've rescheduled how I'm making the clay cups, it's allowed me more time to browse my supply shelves and give things a try that I've never used before (remember when I 1st started working with clay I stumbled upon some awesome deals on pottery supplies...still haven't even tried 1/2 of it! ;) Underglaze for starters! I have it (a lot of it), but haven't really delved into what I could be doing with it! So I grabbed a color off the rack off I went! Hope you enjoy as well ~ Happy Potting! ~ Tammy Jo ******* - "Cups to Date" Photo Gallery -Website: - Blog - Twitter: - Facebook: (be sure to friend me...the Community page is not updated as frequently) ***I'm a novice potter who ventured out on January 1, 2011 to throw a cup for 365 Days (or 365 Cups), to improve and grow as a potter.

250 beads, semi matt-black with glossy color variations Recorded on July 14, 2010 This is another round of beads. A very basic design with greenware underglaze over the bisque underglaze. I realize how that sounds, but they come out in an interesting way. I also examine them after they fall off my table and hit the concrete, and so far they are okay.
glazed beads08 14 10 Recorded on August 14, 2010 I use commercial glazes, and sometimes reverse the ordering of the underglazes, putting a thin coat of greenware underglaze over the bisque underglaze, and it makes a matt finish. It doesn't seem to chip off and I noticed when they drop off the table and bounce off the concrete they survive.
Allee's Duncan Ceramic Arts Mug.MP4 Allee Marderosian recently taught new team members at iLoveToCreate how to quickly and easily paint a ceramic mug using a recycle Scribbles 3D Paint bottle and Duncan Concepts Underglaze. Check out her version of the mug, which includes Duncan French Dimensions!!!
Drawing on Ceramic Many people have asked me how long it takes to create my ceramic pieces. Generally, it takes between 4-6 hours on average, depending on the size of the piece, the content, and the detail involved. I set up a video camera and filmed the process on a piece entitled Interior 1 (The flood). This drawing took approximately 4 1/2 hours to create, starting with the preliminary drawing with pencil (which burns away in the firing process), the actual drawing with black underglaze, and finally a light color wash. Once this is done, the bisque must be hand-dipped in a transparent glaze, and fired at cone 06 (around 1850º) for approximately 7 hours. Once the piece has cooled and unloaded from the kiln, the drawing is permanent and sealed inside the clear glaze. The platters I draw on are safe to eat from, but are not dishwasher or microwave safe. To view more of my work, visit or visit my Etsy store at

Discovery of gold necklace in Boljoon on Burial #29. March 31, 2009 During the fourth phase of month-long archaeological excavations in front of Boljoon Church and Convent, a rare piece of gold jewelry, locally called "inahas" in early missionary accounts, was recovered from a burial called Burial #29, a probable female. This burial was also accompanied with a upside-down spear head and a beautiful covered powder box the lid of which had an underglaze blue design of a young boy holding aloft a puppet hanging on a string and held by a stick. Instead of being covered with a ceramic dish, The head of Burial 29 was lying on an overturned dish with underglaze blue design of a standing phoenix, a very common ware identified with Zhangzhou kilns, ca. 1567-1600s. The coastal site where the church and convent as well as its plaza are located have been the subject of excavations funded by the University of San Carlos Department of Sociology and Anthropology since 2007, with support form the Cebu Provincial Government and the Spanish Program for Cultural Cooperation. Boljoon is 103 km southeast of the provincial capital Cebu City, in central Philippines. To date some 59 burials have been recovered in a total of five months of excavations since February 2007. Jojo R. Bersales heads the project which is permitted by the Archdiocese of Cebu, the owner of the Boljoon Parish Church, which is the only one in Cebu among the 26 National Cultural Treasures declared by the National Museum. The burials have been AMS-dated to between 1505 and 1659 +/- 4o years BP.
USING UNDERGLAZES FOR YOUR PAINTING This is a demonstration of how to use a glazed surface as the underpainting for a watercolor painting. As glazes are added, the painting develops. All the washes (glazes) on the paper are very transparent so that the underlying colors glow through, thereby creating a very colorful piece. I think the glazed paper adds some excitement to the finished product. What artist is not afraid of a white piece of paper? Well, maybe some pros! I do not glaze with any subject in mind. This works well for floral paintings as well.
