In Topic: White Glaze That Blends Well With Dark Glazes

04 September 2013 - 01:36 PM

First--thanks to "oldlady" for calling and giving me a recipe.  I appreciate the info.  And I'm checking out the other recipes.  I do have a BIG closet full of chemicals, so I've got lots of options. 

 

I did want to clarify one misunderstanding--When I said I was responsible for making 150 bowls for our souper bowl fundraiser, I didn't mean to convey that I was the only one contributing.  The Blue Ridge Potters Guild provides 500 bowls for our event, then another 200 for an empty bowls fundraiser in Floyd County, VA.  I myself made 56 bowls last year for the rescue mission and 25 for Floyd County.   Our 150 commitment this year is because of my new job at the Roanoke Rescue Mission--instead of my making 50+, me and my students are going to make 150.  And then the other local potters are committed to providing all the rest--what a great group!!!

 

thanks again for all your help.

OK...I really do know better...but I'm specifically looking for a glaze called "NK white" and was hoping someone would throw out the recipe in response to my plea--because it blends so well with dark glazes. 

 

Since no one seems to have heard of NK white, let me give you the relevant info:

 

I am working for the Roanoke Rescue Mission In Roanoke, VA, running the pottery studio for the 18 month residential rehab treatment program.  One of our projects is to provide 150 soup bowls for a "souper bowl" fundraiser in January.  Therefore, I m looking for a functional, food safe glaze. 

 

I am firing with standard clay #153 (light tan)  to ^6 oxidation.  I inherited a bucket of NK white which is great--a soft gloss that feathers the dark clay it covers--almost like a temouka.  In the past I've used different types  of white--from glossy to matte, and in-between.  But none really interacted with the dark glazes.  I am hoping someone has had success with a white that really melts into the dark glazes underneath, not just covers them.  

 

Oh...and I I wear a size 7 shoe. 

 

Anything else?  thanks so much for the help!!!

sending smiles--Jennifer
