Stoneware Jar. Cone 6

I have been looking to find a combination of glazes that satisfies what I want in my work. I have to finally say I am 100% satisfied with my work.


Finally found a combination of glazes that produce interesting surface effects depending on the thickness of the layering but also have a unique and desirable look. I also really love the layering of fake ash over the top of them to create a more natural aged look. I think this is probably the best pot I have ever made. Only took me three years!


Now to get my butt in gear and start selling pots again. Just thought I would share some success. You all have been there rooting me along the whole way. Thanks for that.

Glad to hear it! You've worked so hard on your glaze testing this must be a huge relief. Somehow though in the back of my mind I'm thinking you are always going to be searching....

Oh I will always be testing no doubt about that. I am just saying I have some glazes that I am happy with to sell products and use on the majority of my work. I have plans to run little test along side a productive load of pottery. Something like 95% to sell and 5% to learn.


Im going to start running curry test on developing a really nice fake shino. But yea. The main thing is my kiln won't be 100% test loads anymore!
