I have yet again started the tedious task of reorganizing my studio. This time I really think Ill have things in the best possible place. One of the many things that gets rediscovered is the large box of old glazes that Ive stashed under my work table. Like many that have gotten things used in the ceramic world I received a plethora of stuff when I first got my used kiln. All I really wanted was the kiln! But it came with so many molds and glazes. Molds/moulds were disposed of but I know that many dislike the idea of dumping toxic glazes just anywhere. SO Ive kept them and when things move I just push the box into another space. This time I took more notice of some and realized they were underglazes that went to ^6. Being that has been my target range I sifted through them all and took out those alike. I never really noticed before because I knew the old lady that once operated the stash of goods didnt fire midrange let alone high fire. So like the moulds I separated out those that I thought Id use here and there over time and mentally bid goodbye to the rest.
Most of them are Ceramichrome Beauty Flos ^06-6. Like many of the glazes they seem to be like a scotch thats old enough to order its own scotch. Any think they still might be of use? Some are not fluid, some are. Reconstitute with water?
