New Pottery in the Studio

Cool new pottery in the studio to make – these ceramic pieces can be painted and then combined with glass frit for a really beautiful piece for your wall!

The hottest new craze in the ceramic and paint your own pottery world is combing glass with your ceramics.  Well, the warmest new craze would be the more appropriate term. Because warm glass is what is being used.  Warm glass is what is referred to when you are fusing glass or heating the glass to about 1450 degrees.  Ceramics after beign painted with glazes are generally kiln fired to cone 04 or 06 or about 1825 degrees.  So in theory glass and cermaics don’t work because they are fired at differant tempertures and more specifically becasue when the glass emerges after a 1825 degree firing and then cools down it is not compatable withthe cermaics and therefore it cracks.  however, it is these cracks that look so wonderful and create a special kind of old world crackle to the ceramic wall decor.

So take a chance on a new creative ideal and let your self get a little cracked up with the combination of glass fusion and pottery painting!  or if you are a purist you can do both sepertely at our studio by visitng either the glass fusion area or the pottery painting area!
