Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: classes, platters

One of my former THROWDOWN students brought in his
glazed sgraffito platter to “show off” the results! Love the colors! Love the carving!!!

Little did I expect that he would have possibly the “best” S-crack ever!!!
Right through the entire plate… just hanging on by one rim.
He suspected a small crack after the bisque firing in the center…
perhaps something heavy was stacked on it so it couldn’t “shrink & move” during the firing?
I dunno… something’s fishy!

That Ryan is one heckuva over-achiever!!!
Shame because his carved fish were amazing!!! No bueno!
