In Topic: Thickness Of Shino Glazes

Yesterday, 11:59 AM

shinos are a bit of an enigma, with many variations. thin, thick, crawl, no crawl, carbon trap, flash, color......much is dependent on clay,glaze recipe, level and timing of reduction/oxidation very thin, thin, normal, thick, very thick, very very thick., placement in kiln, inclusions in clay, cooling rate, handling........ all create different and interesting effects


but this unknown and often inconsistent nature is what i've come to love

like marcia says test test test

That picture with flames out of box was due to a long piece of wood and couldn't close door. And hours before
stall .... Otherwise it was drawing fine......

I didn't load... But I think bottom was fairly dense .... I'll post photos of kiln packing later....
Are saying les dense at bottom is better?
