I would guess some parts you sponged water into more than others and less glaze sucked onto the pot.

Very interesting jrg, thank you for sharing. Now to find a kiln that can have an argon atmosphere... Going to be a long time before I ever attempt this.

Pretty good company, had a few chats with their people. Sure they will get you sorted out.

What is a laser cut sprig mould? You are getting some great impressions.


I think you can split the decision into two areas, the application properties of the 'stuff' and the fired properties of the 'stuff'.


You have a scale of oxide really.

Pure oxide and water all the way to an underglaze (basically a glaze that doesn't melt, could call it a slip, maybe not enough clay for that) Each will have properties you may and may not like so try them both out. Why not try some mix of oxide, clay and flux to make your own underglaze. Also plenty of ways to remove the stuff from high spots so try them all too :D

Is this a cone6 thing? I have never had issue having some speckle at cone 10, just seems to happen with buff stoneware clay. Even better in reduction. I love iron spots.
