Tomorrow is my birthday. Yes, I know it is Friday the 13th! I guess I have to say it is a good luck day since I am turning 59.O.K. Pick yourself up off the floor. I am not using a walker yet. StIll teaching high school art-26 years, and still making pots-35+ years.
Anyway, here are the two glazes. The active ingredient is bone ash, which is a flux and causes the glaze to be a beautiful buttery white.

Tom Roberts Gloss White
Potash spar 20
Whiting 11
Talc 11
E.P.K. 17
Flint 20
Alumina Hydrate 4
Zirco. Pax 6
Bone Ash 5
OM4 Ball clay 6
Total 100

Pete Pinnell's CIA
FRITT 7
Spodumene 15
Neph Sy 10
Syth. Bone Ash 11
Talc 20
EPK 13
Flint 24
Total 100

The second glaze is from Clay Times,Vol II Number 2 [March/April, 2005
Pete suggests adding copper carb in increments of 1%,3%,5%,7%, and 9%.Some beautiful greens result.
These glazes are for cone 9/10 reduction.
Try some colourants and let me know your results.

Gifts gratefully declined for tomorrow.[my birthday,remember]
Tom Roberts, a.k.a. TJR.

Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY TJR!


After 55 it is "legal" and expected that you celebrate 1 week for every year over 55, so you've got 2 more weeks.Posted Image
