I've done this clay body in a reduction before and got literally a pewter color for the body. It was weird...kinda neat for sculptural stuff though. Not sure how I feel about it being food safe even on the surfaces that were glazed though.
That clay is way too high in iron for reduction firing. I'm surprised it survived at all!
Well, in our defense, we were playing. people in my school don't seem terribly interested in learning reduction. I pretty much can snag enough kiln room to play anytime someone does reduction. I don't think I'm going to do it again due to the glazed going nuts, but it was one of those 'Hm, weird!' Moments !
