    wedged for reuse Home Wave Porcelain Blueware Terracotta Fishware Workshop Facts Contact Kiln Richard Baxter uses an Olympic oval top loader electric kiln about 12 cu ft in capacity A smaller Kilns and Furnaces round top loader is used for porcelain The big kiln is 20 years old and cannot reach these higher temperatures The wheel is a Super Europa electric Perfect joints Hairy slip is the solution to virtually all clay joining This gains the benefits of paper clay without making large batches of the stuff Richard makes about 1cm of wet paper pulp in a small bowl to which he adds about 3cm of thick slip slurry and stirs well This is used the same as ordinary slip for joining but you really do not need to cut and score surfaces just a slight roughening with an old bit of hacksaw blade to give a key Paper clay slip shrinks far less than normal slip and binds about a million times better so slabs do not split and handles stay put without hairline cracks Richard Baxter uses the following clays Earthenware pots are made using Valentine s standard grogged red clay bisqued to 950c and glaze fired to

  • Richard Baxter :: potter :: History :: Ceramic musical instruments
    sifleur from France and the Turkish bu1bul testisi and bulbul ibrigi are examples The Turkish type have the form of functional pots Fig 7 but are only whistles the spout containing the whistle When the vessel is filled to part way up the spout and blown a chirruping effect is produced They are either slipped and glazed or just plain and unglazed and again like the ocarina could be imagined as an abstracted bird shape There are fewer tubular flutes made of clay nearly all are South American and none are blown transversely The most common called the quena kena or quechua is a notched flute which was probably copied from gourd ones It is held like a recorder but blown like a flute Beaked flutes from Mexico all have four finger holes and a flared bell which adds nothing to the sound This Aztec flute see Fig 8 also known as pito tlantquiquitl tlapiztalli and cocoloctli was played with one hand while playing a small drum with the other very much like the European pipe and tabor common at the same time but no connection is apparent Clay panpipes are unique to South America They would be made by pressing clay onto a cane core and joining a number together of different lengths to give different notes The blowhole is often elliptical which may make sounding easier and most examples have red slip painted on one half and gray or chocolate slip on the other A set has between two and four tubes but only half of the required notes so would be played with another complimentary set Closed tubes could be tuned with small amounts of water but this is not the case with open ended sets which are incidentally an octave higher Despite the great number of reed panpipes in the Far East it seems that this simple instrument was an independent invention in South America and not received by contact Compared with flutes clay trumpets are small in number although quite widely distributed in South America India Western Europe and parts of Africa The first trumpets were probably conch shells so it is not surprising that clay imitations are found in South America such as the potuto from Peru The Horniman Museum has a red and white marbled clay Portuguese trumpet which is obviously copied from a metal instrument although some coiled trumpets may well have derived from animal horns coiled shells or simply a desire to compact a greater length of tube into a small space Peru had long straight trumpets called pungacuqua or puuaqua which were up to five feet long and were always blown in pairs as were the botuto from around the Orinoco see Fig 9 One had three globular swellings the other two These trumpets were three or four feet in length and must have required huge kilns and considerable breath to sound them Neolithic kettledrums are so like cooking pots they must have started with a domestic use Kettledrums are
