This is a tour of the University of Montevallo's Anagama Kiln, produced as a part of the Anagama Kilncast. The wood-fired kiln, nicknamed "Fat Bastard" by clay artist Scott Meyer and his team, was fired as part of a first-of-its kind live Webcast centered around the kiln.
The term “kiln-glass” covers an enormous range of working methods and types of work, including everything from simple platter-like forms to cast sculptures, painterly panels and architectural installations. In this lesson you will view a variety of finished pieces by contemporary artists working in kiln-glass.
The goal of our ongoing educational video series is to explore the full range of kiln-glass methods and cover the same lessons taught in regular Bullseye classes.
This is an open-ended series of online lessons appropriate for everyone from beginners to advanced kilnformers. Lessons are designed by Bullseye instructors to provide foundational skills, inspiration, and new leading-edge approaches to kiln-glass. Downloadable firing schedules, product lists, and helpful links are included.
The Mini Metal Maker is a small 3D printer that fabricates with precious metal clay. It lets you create objects in 3D with a modeling program like Autocad or Blender and print them in this high-quality material used by the jewelry industry. Once fired in a kiln, your object will be composed of high purity solid metal. Metal clay types include sterling silver, gold, copper, brass, bronze, iron and steel. The Mini Metal Maker lets engineers, designers, artists, and jewelry artisans perfect their designs in metal, all from a desktop environment.
This documentary follows top UK studio potter Lisa Hammond as she prepares for her 2012 Goldmark exhibition.
Delving into her artistic practice, it provides an insight in to the various stages that go into making her distinctive pieces. We see Lisa at her wheel throwing chawans (teabowls) and a large tsubo jar; firing and unpacking her kiln; and talking about her influences over the years, in particular her love of the Japanese pot making tradition. Also captured on camera is her technique of spraying the soda solution direct into the firebox over a period of three hours, creating the characteristically rich and varied surfaces of her pots.
