Clay Address Numbers by johannachambers Clay Address Numbers by johannachambers
House address numbers I made for my parents' gate post. I like that the glaze turned out looking like metal rather than ceramic. :)

I have been thinking of making some. I really need to make myself a trashcan kiln.

A trashcan kiln... like what they use for raku firing?

Yep...and you can control the heat well enough to do most other firing jobs from what I understand...no electricity to worry about you can keep it in your garage and it is basically just a big metal trashcan. ( i.e. cheap) Right now I am so desperate to fire that I might just go dig a hole and go raiku all the way. I am enamored of how pretty it can be anyway...or even try my hand at some native style firing with the blackened look...( plus we can roast marshmallows ) I think it involves leaves or something...maybe the same thing basically as raiku firing but doesn't that also depend on how it is glazed?
Not really clear there.
I don't mind so much the expense of a kiln as I do the electrical aspect...any kiln I would want to own, I would probably need an upgrade on my electricity. My husband and I made a lot of effort researching kilns...but for a place we were going to build. NOT for where I am now...which is where I will remain for at least several more years. ( The school system is like one of the absolute best in the country.)
Sorry to run on like that.

That is so cool! We got to do one raku firing in school, which was a blast but pretty labor-intensive compared to electric. But the results are well worth it! :D

The glaze works well with the rust on the gate, though. It makes it look like the numbers have been there just as long. Nice work!
