Glaze Change Over Time

Recommended Posts

I received a message from a customer saying that the white sculpture that she bought from me two years ago is starting to yellow. The piece was glazed with a low fire glossy white glaze. Anyone have any ideas on how to return the piece to its original color?

Thanks!

White glass (glaze) should not fade within a lifetime. Some non-glaze finishes will change colors.

 

Dust and grease can collect and stain a finish. Wash the piece. I suspect a film of grease is the culprit today.

Thanks to everyone who responded. John, the piece is kept indoors. It is a lowfire white clay that was bisqued to cone 04. I used a commerical white glaze fired to cone 06. The piece is for decorative use only. It's a mystery.....
