BUON FERRAGOSTO A TUTTI! Today in Italy we celebrate Ferragosto which derives from the Latin phrase Feriae Augusti (Rest of Augustus) indicating a feast instituted by the emperor Augustus in 18 BC which was added to the already existing festivals falling in the same month, such as the Vinalia rustica, the Nemoralia or the Consualia. It was a period of rest and celebration that originated from the tradition of the Consualia, festivals that celebrated the end of agricultural work, dedicated to Conso who, in Roman religion, was the god of the earth and fertility. Nowdays, Ferragosto is a day of rest for everyone with plenty of food, wine and outdoors activities!! 💛. Have fun today!! 😻. .

Results from the 7th of June firing, 2019. New clay body has given quite alot of the characteristics which we love from the pervious clay body and more in regards to flame flashes and direction of oxidation and heavy resuction, the ash glazed liner we use for domestic ware resulted in good pooling and richness of colour. I am Very pleased to see Ian enjoying his work and hard labour on his larger pieces and bespoke commissions. Looking forward to reloading up the salt kiln for our next firing. #knightonmillpottery   #wiltshire   #domesticware   #Ianmorrison   #josephbull   #artisan   #Salisbury   #artist   #ashglazedceramics   #joseph   #newcomer   #emergingartist   #ceramicreview   #pottery   #history   #ceramics   #broadchalkhistoryfestival   #Saltglazed   #innovation   #contemporaryart

Glazing with an Oribe and white Glaze the Knighton Mill's Pottery range. Large pots at the back made by Ian Morrison are washed in a slip which is used to create flashing gestures of flames during atmospheric firings. There are wares which have been coated in its entirety and the wares which have been given a liner glaze and which are left raw on the outside are pots that shall get a salt glaze by the process of salt firing. The salt that gets introduced into the kiln at top temperature vaporises and draws from the clay body silica, iron and alumina which create a glass matrix on the surface of the clay body resulting in the salt glaze, 'orange peel effect. We have glazed the bisque ware ready for our loading and firing on Monday March 4th, 2019. #potters   #artisan   #Salisbury   #wilton   #Saltglazed   #reduction   #ashglazedceramics   #potter   #pots   #legacy   #leachtradition   #saltglazefiring   #Ianmorrison   #makers   #ceramicbull   #ceramic   #ceramics   #artist   #domesticware   #wiltshire   #kiln   #firing

The dooring up the kiln and revealing of the salt firing @knightonmillpottery during August 15th/16th. Gas fired to cone 11 in a reduction atmosphere. #knightonMillpottery   #saltfiring   #ianmorrison   #saltglaze   #pottery   #kiln   #ashglazedceramics   #craftmanship   #artisan   #ceramics   #clay   #potterystudio   #wiltshire   #salisbury   #craftmans  

The process of Salt firing ceramics. 1.5 lbs of salt are introduced into the kiln through the use of an angle iron and wrapped up bundles during 1200°c. As the salt vapourises, the haze ia pulled through and around the chamber allowing for the salt to affect the clay body; during which, alumina and silicia is drawn out of the clay and creates the glass matrix and effect which is leads to the 'orange peel'. During the introduction of salt we pull out clay rings to gage the orange peel and check upon the cones to see at what temperature the ceramics are leaning towards. The cones are made from ceramic material and begin to move and melt at varying degrees, theae techniques help in the determination of kiln temperature. #saltglaze   #ianmorrison   #americanpottery   #americanceramics   #pottery   #artisan   #potterystudio   #artist   #makersmovement   #domesticware   #tableware   #ashglazedceramics   #pots   #ceramics   #process   #studio   #wiltshire   #apprenticesjourney   #clay   #potter  

Salting time @knightonmillpottery. Having reached temperature now, 1.5lbs of salt bundles are entering into the chamber for the special salt effect. #saltfiring   #saltglaze   #domesticware   #wiltshire   #salisbury   #artisan   #craft   #craftmanship   #ianmorrison   #americanpottery   #americanceramics   #knightonMillpottery  

We have bricked up the door @knightonmillpottery and fired up the candle flame for a period of time as to allow the kiln to breathe and once the door gets mudded up we will be ready for a two day firing mission to send this kiln to another world. #apprenticesjourney   #wiltshire   #salisbury   #craftmanship   #ianmorrison   #saltglazefiring   #ruralpottery   #potterystudio   #clay   #ceramics   #process   #studio  

"The art is in the stack". A day spent methodically wadding and stacking ianmorrison 's large salt kiln. Tomorrow we will brick up the door and set fire to a range of bespoke pieces alongside domesticware and sample stonehendge mugs along with many other pieces. By the weekend we will get to see the nature of salt and fire on clay. #saltglaze   #saltfiring   #ianmorrison   #knightonMillpottery   #apprenticesjourney   #ceramics   #wiltshire   #artist   #pottery   #studiopottery   #pots   #clay   #ashglaze   #ashglazedceramics   #americanpottery   #craft   #craftmanship   #craftman  

We are loading up the Salt Kiln at @knightonmillpottery during a calm mid summers day. The use of wadding is to prevent clay parts being fused together during the glaze melting and the salt created glass matrix. Quick break for lunch and the rest of the stacking to complete there after. #knightonMillpottery   #ianmorrison   #studiopottery   #saltglaze   #americnceramics   #americanpottery   #wiltshire   #salisbury   #craftmanship   #makersmovement   #unitedkingom   #pottery  

Having completed the glazing of a range of domestic wares along side sample Stonehendge mugs and very special country pots, such as butter churns, cider bottles with the added Korean influenced jars, Ian is satisfied that there are enough pots to fill up his Salt Kiln, which he built himself. In this batch we have glazed the pots using Ian's trusted Oribe glaze which is an ash based glazed as well as British Potte, Mike Dodd's white glaze, which is also Ash based. The ashes hold the minerals (metal elements) that contribute the colour elements to the base glaze. After having made sample tests of Mikes glaze we (Ian more importantly) is confident in its durability within a salting atmosphere. Tomorrow we shall load the Kiln and commence firing Wednesday through to Thursday night. A coming of an end of another cycle of making and firing. #knightonMillpottery   #sharedknowledge   #pottery   #artist   #studiopottery   #ashglazedceramics   #pots   #makersmovement   #potterystudio   #firing   #saltglaze   #wiltshire   #salisbury   #ceramics   #ceramicbull   #domesticwares   #artistsstudio   #kiln   #handmade   #apprenticesjourney   #ianmorrison   #americnceramics   #americanpottery   #artisty   #craft   #craftmovement   #craftman   #saltglazefiring   #fire   #earth

Unloaded the kiln onto my first salt firing @knightonmillpottery and it was quite a transformative step. I got to, in the space of three weeks, see the processes and stations required to turn clay into salt glazed pieces and with what variety. All these different textures and surfaces are a result of 1.5lbs bundles of salt being introduced to the kiln. All pieces were in the same chamber, but due to the stacking of the wares and their location inside of the kiln all had a slightly different treament. By reading the salt flashes and areas of pots wgich didnt get such effects enables you to be able to read the movent of the vapour and the location of oxidation and reduction. #saltglaze   #knightonMillpottery   #ianmorrison   #wiltshire   #salt   #handmade   #pottery   #craftmovement   #traditional   #colours   #domesticware   #ceramics   #domestic   #makers  

Finaly time to call it a night. I found this lidded Jar by ianmorrison, although i am. New to salt firing this jar epitomises the diversity of a Salt firing, the peel, the bake and the glass matrix created by the process. A nice way to finish what has been a positive and uplifting day.

Salting well into the night @knightonmillpottery, putting 1.5lb of salt into the kiln using the angle iron. Increasing slowly so as to create layer upon layer of salt which will eventually create a complex peel and salt glaze matrix onto the raw clay body. First hour is well underway, the process wont be completed until Ian is satisfied by the glaze whjch is indicated by the clay rings which are situated at different levels inside of the kiln. #knightonMillpottery   #sharedknowledge   #pottery   #saltglaze   #americanceramics   #britishstudiopottery   #artsandcrafts   #craftmanship   #artisan   #ceramicbull   #studiopottery   #ianmorrison   #saltglazefiring   #ruralpottery   #potterystudio   #clay   #ceramics   #process   #studio   #wiltshire.

18.06.18 Kiln Firing @knightonmillpottery Ian Morrison and I have been bricking up kiln door to his large Salt Kiln, ignition happened at 11:00hrs.. It has been a great introduction to his studio practise; within two weeks we have made wares, bisqueted, glazed, loaded the kiln with a huge amount of pots and now off into the voyage of my first experience of firing salt glazed ceramics. Its quite a tense period for any potter when you have a huge amount of investment riding on a Successful firing, especially when dealing with cone 11 salt firing where vapourising of salt really hammers both kiln integrity and the domestic wares. Ian's confident, I am confident; so let us fire this beauty through the hours of night into the next day! #knightonMillpottery   #sharedknowledge   #pottery   #saltglaze   #americanceramics   #britishstudiopottery   #artsandcrafts   #craftmanship   #artisan   #ceramicbull   #studiopottery   #ianmorrison   #saltglazefiring   #ruralpottery   #potterystudio   #clay   #ceramics   #process   #studio   #wiltshire

Second day at knighton Mill Pottery and we are handling the bisqueted ware with application of Ian's Oribe glaze. I am Working well with Ian and quickly learning his approach to making studio pottery and domestic ware his philosophy and passion for the craft. All these pieces will be placed into the kiln and fired towards cone 11, during which the kiln atmosphere will be reduced and salt bundles shall be entering the kiln, vaporising on impact and creating a glass matrix on the unglazed clay bodies. #knightonMillpottery   #sharedknowledge   #pottery   #saltglaze   #americanceramics   #britishstudiopottery   #artsandcrafts   #craftmanship   #artisan   #ceramicbull   #studiopottery   #ianmorrison   #saltglazefiring   #ruralpottery   #potterystudio   #clay   #ceramics   #process   #studio   #wiltshire   #apprenticesjourney   #jugs   #domesticware   #artisanart   #craft   #craftmovement

A batch of wheel thrown Jugs by Ian, for The standard ware. Theese jugs will be trimmed and handled tomorrow. His Accuracy in throwing and discerning eyes when pieces are in lines on wareboards have earned him the name of, Ian 'dead eye' Morrison. He has in the space od two weeks taught me subtlies of making which will define the future of my making. How pots have rhythm and dance, how they should seem like they are inspiring, and all singing the same psalm. Patienly he is taking me through Stations of throwing and is tolerating my tortoise speed. A valuable lesson today amongst many is that when pots begin to dry then they should be treated with respect because they are going to be eventually sold at premium prices, this isnt so much to say that the focus was on money, rather the appropriate attitude one should have towards, (ultimatley', dried mud) being thay your energy has gone into them so dont be careless, be conscious. This resonated with me and my synapses, i felt, shifted slightly. They have been firing on all cylinders, so much evolution is happening inside my potting brain something i have desired since Falmouth pottedg, i am really feeling quite excited about. Develoling the right mind and actions towards becoming. #potterystudio   #pottery   #potters   #ianmorrison   #americanpottery   #americanceramics   #theleachpottery   #artisan   #artist   #ceramics   #wayoflife   #jugs   #studio   #studiopottery   #artistsstudio   #makersmovement   #saltglaze   #greenware   #domesticware   #standardrange   #apprenticesjourney  

Ian is weighing up clay to throw medium sized Jugs from his very comprehensive range of knighton Mill pottery's tableware. He extrudes his clay and it needs minimal wedging before he throws the pieces. Although the labour intensity it saves from handling, preparing clay and then wedging is reduced by the bluebird pugging beast a part of the craft and clay preperation, i believe, is missed out. Does it ultimatley matter? There is something truly grounding when the clay you use is processed by human endeavour and will. Although in practicle terms and in size of operation this may not be the ideal situation for individual makers and many potters would not live without their 'pugs'. #clay   #pottery   #studio   #knightonMillpottery   #ianmorrison   #artist   #studiopottery   #artisan   #americanceramics   #saltglaze   #alchemy   #ruralpottery   #potterystudio   #artistsstudio   #makersmovement   #makersofart   #functionalware
