Surfing with Helen Bates - April 9, 2006 - UK, USA

Russell Coates (Frome, Somerset, England, UK)
http://www.theceramicartist.com/display2.asp?mainid=1&select=423
(Coates, who studied the making of Kutani ware in Japan, makes
underglazed blue enamelled porcelain in the Kutani style.)
http://www.wellbelovedgallery.co.uk/russell_coates.htm
( starts by applying geometric designs onto the bisqued pieces using a
tissue paper and charcoal pattern transfer system. He then draws his
figural images in pencil directly onto the pot, then paints the images
in under-glaze blue before glazing and firing to 1270C. He then
completes the design with enamels and possibly gold, and fires the
piecesr a third time to 840C.)

(The Potter's House is part of Homestead Heritage, a traditional crafts
village run by Brazos de Dios, an agrarian Christian community in
central Texas, that welcomes visitors. Committed to a non-violent
lifestyle, the community blends 19th-century rural life with the
selective utilization of modern conveniences.) (Pottery lessons are
available at the farm, and online, and a line of functional stoneware
and earthenware pottery is made for sale to the public.)
