What' s you favorite shino (woodfired)?
Recipe?
Why?
What kind of clay?
Pictures?

Ok it's kinda like asking who' s your favorite super model........they are all sexy and amazingly beautiful.
Part of me says throw a dart any of the "usual suspects". Because so much depends on atmosphere, reduction, cooling, clay, how I held my mouth while throwing....and which direction wheel is was spinning.

I don't wood fire. But I too am fascinated by the subtleties that shino glazes/process provide.

most shino recipes call for sodium spar, i have on hand potassh spar (custer)

i have some basic knowledge on the differences eg custer less fusable

but in a 3 day firing im hypothesising it wont make to big a difference

I used to use Gustin Shino in the wood kiln a lot. Always worked well. Many shinos can be used in tumbles stacking, since they are so stiff. I used to tumble the Gustin right next to high copper glazes, and the shino would take in the copper and blush pink, purple and turquoise. Fun stuff.

I use something also called Gustin Shino: not sure if Chris actually had anything to do with it. I'll dig up the formula for you .

 

PS Helmer is a kaolin, not a spar. Maybs you meant Custer (?)

I stand corrected, custer. Gustin shino, I think use a soda spar shino.... I was looking for potash spar recipe.
After more research the traditional feldspar in shino is sodium not potash. Nonetheless I d be glad to see your formula.
