Looking For A Controlled Thick Drip Glaze

Recommended Posts

Hi Ceramic Arts Community,

 

I'm new and I hope I'm posting in the right place :)

 

I'm looking for a glaze with a controlled thick flow, one that builds at the bottom and ends with a hard edge. I have attached a photo of what I'm looking for. I fire cone 6 in an electric kiln.

 

Any information would be great.

 

Thanks for your time

Lincoln

Howdy Lincoln. Welcome!

 

Controlled drips, huh...

 

What glazes are you currently using? All the drippy work I've ever made relied on heavy application of glaze, plenty of space for the drips to roll, and crossed fingers until unloading time. I work at ^6 and have been able to get most glazes to move with a heavy enough application. Sometimes they even move when I don't want them too! I'd start with what you already have and see how much control you can harness.

 

Bonus: For some drippy glaze eye candy check out work by Branan Mercer and Steph Galli.

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for the reply, those examples were right on. The majority of my work is sculptural based and I tend to leave my work unglazed. When glazing I've been using a clear glaze, Amaco HF-9 Zinc - Free. I thought that the hard edged affect might be a particular type of glaze. I did think about loading up the glaze but I thought that this would cause bubbling and not the clear solid finish that the sample shows also I was concerned with the glaze just running free. I going to give this method a go and see what happens.

 

Thanks again and if you hear of anything else I'm all ears :)

 

Lincoln
