Dipped Glaze Producing Air Bubbles
Posted 30 October 2013 - 10:57 PM
And any other glaze over the Shino will also be pitted with air bubbles, although the second glaze will cover perfectly elsewhere on the same pot...
Worst of all, I'm embarrassed to admit that this same thing happened to me last year, but I'll be damned if I can remember the cause or solution.
Could someone help this dunderhead?

I mix the glaze very gently, so I'm pretty sure I am not causing it by stirring air into the glaze.
Unless the glaze looks like foamy head of a freshly poured pint of bitter... you are fine.
Dipped pots are emerging from the glaze covered with air bubbles.
Is your glaze too thick or you put it on too thick?
Use your finger to smooth out those bubble craters on the bisque and you will be fine.
Any chance you can upload a small image of that bubbling glaze?

Could it be outgassing of your clay body causing the bubbling, and not the glaze?
As I understand it, this is before firing.
....emerging from the glaze covered with air bubbles.
