I bought a pot in Cornwall a few decades ago, which appears to have a dolomite glaze over white stoneware body.
Interestingly it seems to have not a tide-mark but significant areas of the browny-orange.

Looked at more closely the areas appear speckled but free from edge-effects.

Any ideas what's happening? I go along with the solubles/volatiles theory for the
previously described tide-marks. Perhaps the pot was dipped and finger-wiped,
distributing the solubles uniformly over a significant [unglazed] area?
PS Chris your example seems to show both tide-marks and more solid areas. Would
you like to comment on any differences in treatment?
