Spring is on the way, and I saw robins in the yard already- a month ahead of schedule. I have finished my porcelain study, almost done with stoneware, and done with crystalline. So this spring and summer, I am going to look more closely at slips and standard cone 6 glazes. I have an interest in slips; to be used in non-traditional applications. Have these thoughts rolling around about using slip as color nodes, or for colorant fields for a runny glaze to leach color from as it runs through it. I am sure there are books out there, but I usually do not read them until after I get done experimenting. Do not learn very much by reading them; they tend to be shy on technical information (chemistry). So if you have some generic slip recipes floating around that I can "rearrange"; please send them along please. Nerd
docweathers posted a topic in Clay and Glaze ChemistryJohn Britt has graciously allowed Tony Hansen, creator of Insight, to add the recipes from his book, "The Complete Guide To Mid-Range Glazes", into Inside-Live. It is still important to buy John's book because it offers far more than just glaze recipes. It's an outstanding book that provides a wealth knowledge about glaze chemistry. If anyone has pictures of the glazes on tiles or pots, send them to Hansen or me so that he can add them to Insight-Live. Also, include clay type and firing schedule.
