Form has to be the thing for me.  Thick, misshapen, out-of-balance, puts me off.  Delicate, flowing, graceful makes me smile.

 If I dislike a texture I will actually "wipe" the unpleasant feeling off my hand. 


Oh yes, me too.  Sitting here cringing with the thought of some yukky textures.

There is a commercial glaze called ..........heirloom silver...?????  I think.


Anyway, it fires to a matt finish, similar to the first link,  It's not black, but not definitely not silver either.


I'll go down to the studio later and see if I can find the pot and sample.


Sorry, ran out of time, and now away for a couple of weeks.  Holiday - yay

In Topic: High Fire Pink Glaze Recipe

 Anyone has a recipe to achieve the attached color at high fire?



and cone 6 is not really high fire so you might try looking under cone 6 in the books on glaze recipes.


High fire seems to have different meanings each side of the pond.  I've always been used to high fire as being ^6.  Until I joined this forum, I thought anything hotter was always associated with reduction/wood/salt/soda firing.
