My Gift You

Recommended Posts

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.

Whiting 11

Talc 11

E.P.K. 17

Flint 20

Alumina Hydrate 4

Zirco. Pax 6

Bone Ash 5

Total 100

FRITT 7

Spodumene 15

Neph Sy 10

Syth. Bone Ash 11

Talc 20

EPK 13

Flint 24

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]
