cone 6 horsehair glaze?
Posted 09 March 2013 - 07:41 AM
Horse hair is done around 11-1200 F well below raku temperature. It is done on a very porous surface where is can carbonize into it by actually applying the hair to the hot surface.
At cone 6 the clay should be vitrified. I don't know how you would plan to apply the horse hair to the surface. It would burn up way before cone 6.
So the answer to that question is no.
Rabbit hare's glaze yes. But I don't have a recipe.

More than likely, keep the horse hair process to decorative pieces ... it's a decorative process ... treat it as such.

sulfate, copper sulfate or ???. Hopefully when the organic material burns out from the feathers or horsehair it will deposit the colorants and a pattern reflecting the structure of the material.
Is there anything else that might be useful to try just so these things in?
Is there anything that would makethe feathers and horsehair absorb the colorants better?

This is what he said
"I use a vc matte glaze for the base and a copper blue matte for the top. I used little loafers from highwater. I glaze the piece and then fire it to maturation. Then let it cool all the way down and then on the next glaze cycle, stack it at the top and pull it out at 1000 degrees. If it is to thick, it will crack. If there is a slight change in room temp from a cool breeze to a fan, then it will crack. Use any organic material to leave a mark. I use the cheapo white pill feathers, long horse hair, and sometimes sugar. I think that is everything.....you can also search on you tube for The Bascom, horsehair. We have a 10 minute video.""

This guy consistently does amazing stuff. he did the oil spot MFA thesis that I posted. n=Now he's working on Some amazing Crystal glazes, which he will be publishing an article on soon. Someone ought to pick him up as faculty.
Very interesting. Thanks for posting it.
