Chemistry Book Recommendation ?

27 April 2015 - 11:17 AM

I feel like I am reading another language when I read glaze recipes written in this form (see pic)  Is there a basic chemistry for glazemakers book to help me decipher these? I feel like i should know this.  

Good Pyrometer?

Can someone suggest a good pyrometer for raku that is not going to break the bank? Thanks! 

(also some decent gloves?) Links would be helpful if possible 

Woot! Trying It Out Finally!

26 April 2015 - 05:55 PM

Ok so today I mixed up a few batches of glaze to test! I did the Glossy Base 1 with G200hp and the wollastonite was substituted for the silica/whiting combo.

 I also did a mix of that with Tin to test out some white while I was at it. 

I tried cranberry red (in brit's book) and one with the base only with a red mason stain. (I read somewhere that it was possible to look great)

I am trying a basic shiny clear glaze (gersley borate. silica, epk) 

And finally The dark blue N501. 


So excited this week I will fire my first test tiles ever! <3 I will post my results 

I have a crappy kitchen digital scale and doing only 100 gram batches It is tricky because it doesn't do half grams so I have to play with it a bit. Time to invest in a decent scale. 


Firing Work For Somebody At Higher Cone

22 April 2015 - 10:09 AM

I have recently been asked if I could fire a piece of work for a fellow potter who has helped me out in the past.  I fire cone 5-6. The piece I am being asked to fire is cone 10.  I have a skutt 1027 and it shows cone 10 at the max temp.  Would you attempt to fire something at max temp? I was offered a shelf to fire it on just in case ...

Are there any articles or books with any of the glaze information or recipes for the work of Rose Cabat?
