a good place for pottery

Post by Acebay on June 4th 2011, 12:16 pm

I am new to pottery, so please be kindly, even if ...!

Is sunlight dangerous for the glazing of pottery and is a window board a good place for pottery?

Some types of pottery should not be in direct sunlight , RAKU for instance ( Eddie Curtis told me this ) I don't know about other glazes .

most pottery is fine in direct sunlight and a window sill is a great place to display your collection

edit

unless it's windy

Ed, how strange that you should mention Eddie Curtis - i saw a selection of his work at the Beaux Arts gallery in Bath today and was seriously tempted to purchase something. I was blown away by his large pieces with oxblood type glazes.

As for window sill displays - i have a cautionary tale that happened only yesterday. A strong gust of wind caught my open window and slammed it against a pot plant i had put on the sill (standing in a Bisto Pot). Smash! i was a very unhappy bunny i can tell you and did a good copy of Jesus cursing the fig tree.

I know the type of pieces you mean Bisto , I certainly wouldn't mind having them , gorgeous stuff, the raku piece I have was done long before the red pieces he mainly does at the moment , as for the window sill thing ,I only put stuff there that I am not too keen on and pray for a gale Laughter
