Glaze firing on - mostly transparent over oxides and tissue transfers with my v reliable glossy glaze. On the shelf is a batch of stoneware pieces from a throwing workshop I attended - after 2 failed stoneware glaze firings I'm very reluctant to get on with these. Have tweaked the glaze and will do just one test piece before sacrificingthe rest to the kiln gods

    Will post pics in the morning when I unload.
    That's a very good question Roberta - it crawled horribly on various pieces. I THINK I'd thinned it too much with water, when someone suggested it should be thin (after a precious disaster!). Now, I've drawn off the excess water and will be programming a slow cool. Problem is getting enough stoneware together to fill the kiln and having the right pieces for a different glaze to accompany my test piece.

    That was - 'previous' disaster - though the work was of course 'precious' !!!!

    Pictures in my gallery. Quite pleased - some glaze a bit thin and oxides on the pale side. I was trying not to overload either! Cobalt transfers on the creamers have run a little at this temp, so will fire lower next time. Full speed ahead for the rest of the wedding favours, now I know the glaze will work.

    Current firing is white earthenware - didn't make that clear! I too am no lover of glazing - after various disasters!

    HaHa! Joel - with a 5 hr drive in the opposite direction - I think not! You still working from home? Got a shed in the garden?
