Stoneware Pumpkin

Designer: William Pulse



  1. Use the Clean Up Tool to remove the seam lines from the ware. Use the Green Grit Cloth to further smooth the seam line and any imperfections on the piece. Use a moistened Synthetic Sponge to wipe down the piece to remove any dust.
  2. Fire to Shelf Cone 04-05.
  3. To the top third of the pumpkin apply 2 coats of SC-23 Jack O’Lantern using CB-604 Soft Fan. Let dry.
  4. Apply 2 heavy coats SC-97 Cant-elope to the high points on the pumpkin sections over the Jack O’Lantern using CB-406 Pointed Round. Tapper the glaze as you move down the sides of the pumpkin.
  5. Apply 1 coat of SW-164 Satin Patina to the stem using CB-406 Pointed Round.
  6. Stir and shake SW-155 Winter Wood. Use CB-604 Soft Fan to apply 1 coat of SW-155 Winter Wood to the pumpkin excluding the bottom and stem. For the second coat of glaze, tapper the amount of glaze and crystal towards the bottom of the piece. Do not glaze the bottom of the piece as it is not stilted in Firing. Apply only 1 coat of Winter Wood over the stem.
  7. Wipe off the bottom of the piece using a moistened Synthetic Sponge to ensure there is no glaze on the bottom before Firing
  8. Fire the piece to Shelf Cone 5-6 (Mid-range).
