Amber Glaze

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good starting point for a deeeep amber cone 10 glaze? I'm familiar with the celadon base and adding fe2o2 which brings about a nice temmoku at around 8-9% but looking more for a translucent honey / Amber look. The closest I've seen was a teadist but it is more green than what I'm looking for.

Cowan amber Celadon in John Britt's Complete Guide to High fire glazes is lovely:

Sometimes does crazy fantastic blue hares fur when pummeled with wood ash for days on end too!

(that's it doing that in my profile picture). Although the back side away from the ash stays that honey amber.

12.8 silica

6.1 ball clay

YES! this is exactly what I was looking for Timbo_Heff! The ball clay I can see as being the binder for this. 11% redart, isnt that just ball clay too or does it influence the color along with the red iron oxide? Man i need to get some yellow iron oxide / ochre! Thanks so much for the starting point!

The Redart is an earthenware clay that is bringing iron to the glaze. It is quite coarse, so you wouldn't be able to sieve to 100 mesh.Try 80 mesh.

TJR.
