The RAM fountain glazer is big time saver in production glazing: not cheap though!

In Topic: Differences Between Stoneware And Earthenware Body When Firing To 06

Hi,

A couple ideas: try the Sheffield MGB : it is based on the native clay but with a good bit of grog for sculptural applications: it does NOT have lots of Red Art in it so it is not as red and staining as regular terra cotta clays. Without all the Red Art is is a much more tame color. Still orange /red though to some extent: if you take it up to 01 or 1 even, it will get browner.

 

Another idea is to go with a low fire white with grog and add a bit of Mason Body stain to get your desired color.

Or do a tinted slip over either clay to get your color would be another approach.

Just some thoughts

New 23x22 is a perfect size: easy to load but still a decent capacity and can handle 20" pots which is pretty good for most mere mortals

5.83 cu ft
