    Whieldon Glaze

    Thank you very much for the explanation - it's a fascinating effect. Yes, I know lead is a contentious topic, although as far as I am aware the acceptable limits are higher here in the UK and several distinguished slipware potters still use lead based frits on their ware.

    Whieldon Glaze

    Hi Everyone, how are modern Whieldon glazes made/achieved? Here's an example: Sean Gordon teapot. Is this a specific type of recipe, or a layering technique? Thanks in advance!

    cone 6 red glazes

    Thank you, yes, the next step is indeed to try it on different bodies, and on actual pots.

    cone 6 red glazes

    Hi why-not, thanks for sharing this - your post has inspired me to try the same in my electric kiln - and to my amazement it worked :) I must have put in a bit too much charcoal as I had know idea about the amount required. But the results are promising, here's a dark celadon and a copper red tile.

    how to make underglaze bleed & run

    In my (limited) experience natural oxides like cobalt or copper tend to bleed more than commercial underglazes, also if the clear glaze has a tendency to move in firing that will blur the underglaze - for example this glaze here: Soft Clear
  6. I have realized I never reported back. The solution you proposed has worked - heating the glaze has indeed dissolved the crystals and it became usable again. Thanks!
  7. I don't know about the Netherlands, but the most common Ferro frits are available here in the UK.

    Cream Glaze Recipe

    I am rather fond of cone 6 recipe Mary's Error (Link to recipe on Glazy); it is the liner glaze on the bowls in the attached pictures.
  9. Neil, that is interesting. I will look for and try out some clays to see if I can get close.
  10. That makes sense, thank you, Marcia. I fire electric, so this particular solution is not an option for me then.
  11. Thank you, guys - indeed that was the glaze I was referring to. Yes, I know I can get a speckled look in various ways, I was just curious what wizardry they used to achieve it in the glaze. Here's what Scarva says about the glaze:
  12. That is strange, when I click on it it takes me straight to the specific page. Apologies. Anyway, the glaze is the Scarva GZ2214 Iron Reactive stoneware glaze.
  13. Hello Everyone, I was looking at this commercial glaze: https://www.scarva.com/en/Scarva-GZ2214-Iron-Reactive-Glaze/m-5060.aspx and was wondering if you could tell me which component/property of this glaze made it 'iron reactive'? I would love to locate a glaze recipe with the same effect that I could try, or develop a glaze on my own. Thanks!
