Don’t Glaze Over Just Yet

Ceramic Pinhole Bisque Fired And ready for glaze.

So I was back at the ceramic studio where my Potter Wife works yesterday.
The ceramic pinhole camera came out of the kiln after it’s biscuit firing.
That means it is cooked ceramic now – not raw, wet clay – but still fragile. It’s rough and textured but still delicate and potentially easy to break.
The next stage of the process will be to glaze it.
To reduce the risk of light flare during exposure I am doing the interior matt black.
I have decided to glaze the exterior with a matt white, and then decorate it with cyanotype images.
The glazing will be done this week, then it will go back in the kiln for another firing.
Mark One Ceramic Pinhole is close to being ready for work now.
