Hi Pat . For those of us not in the know can you please explain (never thought I would say that ) when you say the ashes does that mean you fire them with some of the timber of that species ? And what do the cones mean ?
Beautiful pots .
Cheers Craig

Thanks Guys, for your generous remarks!

Thanks Ken, I have "retired" which allows time for other pursuits while I still play at pottery :)

And Sno, plant based ash contains all the necessary ingredients to make a glaze. I have several pots fired by Boris Lomov that have nothing but fly ash as the glaze material. They are beautiful!
Generally speaking however, other natural occurring ingredients have to be added to make a usable glaze slop. My Kosciuszko glaze is nothing but ash and clay from Kosciuszko.
Cones are pyramids of ceramic materials blended to soften and bend at specific temperatures. By observing the cones through the kiln spy hole the potter can record the 'work' done. Stoneware is generally considered to be 1300C, or cone 10.
Thanks for your interest Craig.

Regards, Pat

Nice stuff pat . On another note did you see at the national collection one of your early square shohin pots I donated ? I really loved that pot but could not find a tree to suit it for the life of me .........
