Nuka glazed Chaire with burnish gold lustre accents and porcelain lid

Dark iron stoneware, wood fired and electric fired. Nuka glaze, gold luster, porcelain lid. In private collection in Japan.



    John;
    I came across a recipe for a Nuka glaze, which I understood to be white. I was interested in it as it uses wood ash, which I have an abundance of.[dangling participle there]. I mixed up a test. Like the surface quality, but it needs to be applied thicker. On your jar, are you putting it over black slip, or is it a black clay body? Looks beautiful.

    Just saw this comment Tom.  Thanks.  Very dark clay body.... Sheffield #42 with added local granite dust.
