  1. 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!
  2. Hi All, I received some great advice from the members of this forum for my first Raku fire and wanted so show some of the results. If fired the kiln twice, once as a test with sample items and once with my work which was more successful. The video is of the second firing (although I did upload the first to YouTube as well, I learned a lot from it). It is not very long and shows the completed work at the end. I used a combination of glazes that I prepared from recipes from the internet and books as well as some pre-mixed Laguna glazes. I made the kiln from an old Paragon kiln I found for $50 off of a site similar to Craigslist. Again thanks for the great Raku Input. Ian Cook
  3. Yes, I am tilting at windmills... I've been doing tons of trials with Amaco Velvet underglazes to introduce some bright colors to my pieces, and I currently work only in cone 10 reduction. I know what I'm up against, but still I must persist. I apply the underglazes on leatherhard so that they will be bisque-hardened to better withstand cover glazing. Yes, most of the colors will not be true, but I've found many I like—without a clear glaze cover. What I need to find is a clear gloss cover glaze that will not completely alter so many of the colors. Amaco's own house brand has its problems, including the crazy price for enough glaze to dip pieces, (they offered no help "because we sell a clear glaze") and the best choice at my membership studio still transforms most of the colors, some into a completely different spectrum (see image). Does anyone have a clear gloss glaze recipe with a better hope of allowing the underglazes to stay as true as possible in a cone 10 reduction kiln? When you stop laughing, I'd love to hear.
  4. Hi. I was wondering if there an app to catalog glaze recipes for the ipad? Ideally it would be able to input the ingredients and amounts, have a few photos associated with the recipe, some notes, and be searchable by glaze name, color, glaze surface, ingredient, or keywords. In an even more perfect world it could calculate the amounts in measurable amount from the percentages entered if i ask it to calculate how much of an ingredient i needed for a pint or gallon, or 5 gallon of glaze. I don't suppose there is such an app to download? It could even be a iphone app tho an ipad app would be better. Thanks.
  5. Hi all I am quite new to glazing and am looking for tried and true recipes. I particularly want a good aubergine gloss glaze which fires at cone 6 oxidation. I am using stoneware clay. Any suggestions welcome!
