Did you chatter the inside? Love that glaze in there.

Ah yes, I was thinking the flux stayed the same across the whole tile, probably looking at too many unity formula. It does keep the flux ratio to itself the same so maybe that was it. I wanted to see what different ratios of flux to each other would do.

	Kaolin	Silica	Gilles- Dolomite
Glaze A	31.2	44	74.8	0
Glaze B	35.8	51.7	41.7	20.8
Glaze C	60	90	0	0
Glaze D	41.3	61.5	0	47.2

These are the four glazes I ended up with. Think it is 8.33~ ratio and it does vary slightly across each glaze. There will always be quite a bit of CaO as the dolomite and GB both bring it. No idea what is going to happen but I will be glaze firing a few tests today.

If it doesn't normally do that then I am going to say yes, but don't ask me why  :ph34r: ions and things  ;) Your guess is as good as mine.

I had a few glazes come out similar to these recently but with cobalt carbonate. Glazes both high in Gillespie Borate, actually they only contained GB, kaolin and silica. I will take some pictures tomorrow. I will also test iron to see if similar speckle appears.


Thinking about it some more... I did add 5% rutile along with the cobalt. Maybe not the GB causing speckle.hm

Love it, gave me a giggle. A very amusing plant pot. Hopefully it will bring your plant some enjoyment.
