Soda-Fired Wall Piece
6" X 4"
Every piece I create is unique, but this piece is soda-fired and thus unique ways I can only take partial credit for!
I paint my work using colored clay slip I create by mixing ceramic stains into liquid porcelain. The trick is to manipulate the soft slab’s freshly painted surface into a 3-D form without disturbing the delicate surface. After I have done all this exacting work to adorn the surface, I surrender the piece to the soda kiln.
At peak temperature 2232°F, baking soda is injected into the gas kiln. The soda is swirled around the kiln by the roaring flames. Where the soda lands, it fluxes (melts) the surface of the clay. The fluxed surface may result as a subtle sheen or added layers of melted glass.
This piece will last for generations. Handwashing is recommended.
