Okay, it isn't earth shattering, but it seems to be a decent glaze. I think I need to flux it a little more to get what I want.

I think this is a more than decent glaze.

I'm really eating this stuff up Hermes. Thanks again!

I'm curious, the KNaO on the chart is separate. Is the KNaO limit different from the separate KO and NaO limits? I kinda new to this so you'll have to excuse any silly questions on my part.


Hi. Marcia answered and, I agree it might be confusing. I often thought to change that in my graphs when I was filling a record. But, for me also K an Na are behaving different so I leave it like it is. The trouble may be that Na OR K may get out of limit individually but when you sum up KNaO appears to be OK.

Thanks for your interest,

For anyone who needs a refresher on glaze chemistry or just needs a good introduction to the basic concepts, please follow the numbered parts of Hermes posts on "Keeping Records". This information is presented in a clear concise manner with charts. It is excellent.


Many, many thanks for the support and the kind words!

It is very interesting that you come from a chemist' background. John Hesselberth also comes from that background. I really appreciate your chart.
I come from a visual artist background and charts really make sense to me. I had several glaze calculation classes back when we used slide rules. (dating myself??) I have old hand drawn charts of the ratios.
I hope others who don't have the background will read what you are posting. It is a valuable resource.

Thanks so much.


Thank you for your interest. I hesitate long before doing this. Our fellow member DocWeathers encouraged me to do so and he reviews part of my posts. My thanks go to him as well.

I'm looking forward to your next post on glaze chemistry.

Thanks for your interest, for the reviews and surely to have encouraged me to post.
