Hello! I've decided to start using flamware clay to make cooking pots and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge to share. I worked with an artist for several months who works with flameware so I know a fair amount, however my knowledge is limited to her techniques and glaze recipes. The artist I worked with soda fires her work to cone 11. Has anyone tried firing flameware in a wood kiln? Thanks!
Have small quantities of chemicals I inherited and need glaze recipes for cone 6. These are the chemicals: red iron oxide, rutile frit, manganese carbonate, copper carbonate, cobalt carbonate, nickel carbonate, borax, feldspar custer, zinc oxide, bone ash, chrome oxide, albany slip and barnard blackbird slip. What main ingredients are missing to make glazes? Where can I find recipes to make best use of these chemicals?
I came across a chart on Julia Galloway's Field Guide section of her blog that has a pdf chart called "Bob Shay's Glaze Recipe Chart (Cone 06-04, Oxidation, Matt-textures, Wide temperature range)." I attached a copy. While I am familiar with many of the glaze types he has listed (like lichens, lizards, beads, craters, etc) there are some that I can't figure out: "Flamedrops" "Earthmother" and "Superstition" are the ones that have me stumped. Is anyone familiar with these? I can't find anything helpful about them on the web. I would love to see images or at least get an accurate description of what to expect from them. I'm still a newbie to glaze crafting. I'm sure some of you can look at the ingredients and know right off what the resultant mixture will do. Thanks in advance. P.S. If anyone is interested Julia has a lot of pdfs available for download.Many are just handwritten recipe notes (I found that I had to open the pdfs in Internet Explorer as they come up blank for me with Chrome: http://juliagalloway.com/field-guide/chapter-12-pdf-downloads/ LowFireTextureGlaze-Shay.pdf LowFireTextureGlaze-Shay.pdf
