Budvase -

This is culmination of 3 glazes overlapped that I have been working on. A dolomite matte that is white, a milky clearish white, and a titanium white. Also a tad of fake ash sprayed lightly over it to give it the green hues on the right.

 

I am really happy with this and I think I could take it further. It has beautiful tones of brown and I loooove the way the rim breaks and the color that shows through. It is really spot on to what I have been trying to achieve. Unfortunately the black clay I have been working with doesn't have the same effect. Sort of a sad moment that I am probably going to give up on the black clay, so far I haven't had any luck in creating the tones I am looking for. This pot basically satisfies all my requirements.

 

Natural spots from the clay body, beautiful tones of brown, green, grey and white, and interesting surfaces.

 

Is it time to settle down and explore this? Can I commit. Ahhh

This is very different from the other glazes you've been experimenting with isn't it? Less is more aesthetic that I can see working well on your yunomi. It reminds me of a cone 10 dolomite (buttermilk) fired in reduction with some iron bleeding. I get the feeling that like most things that look minimalist at first glance it's much more sublime than that. Good stuff : )

It is definitely a different direction that most of my recent work has been going. When I load up my kiln with test I have several different ideas going at once. Then I look at the results and write it all down. Then I sit down over the next period of days or week and try to decide what I need to do next. Then I load up the same variation of test and try new things or to improve on what I did. I posted an earlier version of this glaze idea:

However this version was pretty much clear. I decided I wanted it slightly more white, so I added the dolomite matte very thin then the milky white over it all. This made the glaze more greyish instead of brownish green. I personally like both of the pots. However I prefer this one more as it stands out to me better. 

 

Thanks for your kind words. I definitely agree that my current pots have to much surface decoration to go with wild glazes. The best part about this glaze combination is it works on subtle forms and on more distorted forms. Or atleast I think it does. 

 

I think my next step is to experiment with flashes of color other than fake ash green. Maybe mix some cobalt fake ash up or something. Although I don't want to get into the same area that other potters have gone with it.
