We recently returned from the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA) conference. As we reflect on the events of this inspiring conference we thought we would share some of the standout moments with you.
Jeff from GR Forms in Grand Rapids, Michigan visited the Bailey Showroom in Kingston, NY. While he was here we shot a video of him demonstrating how he uses his wood drape molds to create plates and platters.
Shoshona Snow has been working in clay since her days as a student at our nearby SUNY New Paltz. She is also a long-time Bailey Showroom Customer. We caught up with Shoshona for a brief interview after she used the hashtag, #MadeWithaBailey on Instagram. Here, she talks about what inspires her intricately carved, and high-contrast, whimsical ceramics.
Once you have applied an underglaze transfer onto a clay slab you can build with it. Here we will demostrate forming a handled cup with a printed slab.
Underglaze transfers are made up of ceramic underglaze material that has been printed onto thin paper. They can be transferred to the surface of greenware clay and fired from cone 06-10. Today we will demonstrate how to apply underglaze transfers to the clay surface.
Today we are demonstrating a fun and easy project, perfect for Valentine's Day. Because there is nothing more iconic on Valentine's Day than a Valentine itself, we are showing how you can create personalized ceramic Valentines! This project puts a unique spin on a classic gift.
