Clay Baking Pot

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by Treessz, Jan 2, 2011.

  1. hi, use raku clay. Fire it slowly up to 600 (80 degrees per hour) then up to 1000 celcius after drying it thoroughly for at least a week somewhere warm. after the first firing you can glaze the work and then fire it again depending on the glaze temp. I would probably just high fire your bread dish to 1265 after the first firing to vitrify it. It will be waterproof and because of the clay fairly resistant to thermal shock.
    hope some of this helps, your local school art supplier should have what you need,
    all the best and happy new year
