Example text

It is often a great relief to see our clients’ work survive the rigors of the fire. We must next address whether the clients can tolerate surrendering their work to yet another, final firing of their pieces – a process known as the glaze-firing – or employ other alternative ways of finishing off the work, such as the use of paint and related surface treatments. 44 CLAYWORKS IN ART THERAPY To paint or glaze The finishing phase of the ceramic process entails adding colorants to the sculpture or pottery.

Always wear smocks, eye protection and old clothing when glazing (Qualley 1986). GLAZE OPTIONS Preparing to glaze requires forethought, in that it can be a messy, chaotic, and expensive process. Many studios will buy a range of different glazes by the pint, many of which languish on the shelves half-dried out and poorly labeled. I prefer to streamline the process by using just two basic glazes: an opaque white with a satin finish and a clear with a glossy finish. These glazes are deemed safe for food/water use and contain none of the aforementioned compounds which may be toxic.

Another advantage of self-hardening clay is that the clients no longer have to risk surrendering their works to the unseen forces of the kiln firing. Clients with object permanence issues no longer need to be concerned over the disappearance of a work during the firing process, which may be interpreted as a loss of that object. In many cases this is an accurate perception, as pieces are indeed lost or destroyed during the loading or firing process. Self-hardening clay keeps the work within the client’s field of vision so as to reassure the individual of its continued existence and well-being.
