Before I started decorating all of my work, I used to use a lot of oriental Temmokus and Celadons. Since I was the studio tech for ceramics, I used to dump all of the left over stoneware glazes together and try to come up with a beautiful slop glaze.
I did such a thing with a glaze called Shambinski Jawalski special.Named after my prof., Robert Archambeau.
This glaze was golden, breaking red and blue, from rutile, I assume.
It was BEAUTIFUL!
I made a large bowl and glazed it with this glaze, even though I was running out of it. The bowl was beautiful. My friend bought it at our annual student sale.She admired it and took it home.
Later, I was at her house, and asked if I could see her bowl. She proudly displayed the bowl, full of dirt, with a plant growing in it.[She put dirt in my beautiful bowl!]
Of course, I sold it. She bought it. She can do with it what ever she wants. And she was happy.
End of story.
