pots from the past…

Camera is on the fritz.

Though there is a bunch of stuff going on in the studio it is not much fun to share without the benifit of images.

So here is another pot from my Clay Center days.  It is approx. 5″ in height, a sandy Newman’s Red clay body, salt fired.

It seems really comfortable to me – nice harmony of loose and tight – doing a lot w/ a little.  Those were the days…

    That is a really great pot! Is it a low fire body fired to cone 1, or was it formulated specifically for firing to that temp?

    I’m not very good (or terribly interested) in formulas, but taking the mad scientist approach – i’ve found that this Newman’s Red body is quite refractory and stands up @ cone 10 (as a toasty brown in reduction). Down at 01’ish’ is leaves a bit to be desired as far as tightness, though it is a beautiful color, both raw and under glaze.
    I pinched the recipe off Ron Meyers and should you google ‘Ron Meyers clay body’ it should pop up for you.
    I’m using a variation on this body now with a bunch more Redart in it – i lose vivid orange and gain a bunch in vitreousnessosity.
