  1. Thanks for all the tips! Based on all the info gathered, my next step is to sieve the glaze. Will check back with results!
  2. I wondered if it was rust too. But all the glaze jars are plastic and my brushes don't appear to be rusted on the bands. As mentioned in another comment, I think I need to try sieving the glaze. Surely that will help. Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to reply. I really appreciate it!
  3. The clay is Laguna B-Mix and the glaze is Laguna Colonial White.
  4. Thanks for replying! I'm using a commercial glaze. I called the company but they haven't had any other complaints about the two glaze batch numbers I've used most recently. I'm not seeing any visible flaws on the bisqueware. I'm vacuuming the lid, shelves and posts too; it's happening on every piece, no matter where it's been in the kiln; the kiln jacket seems to be in great shape, still fitting snug. Sieving is the only thing I haven't tried yet, so I'll definitely do that. Here's a photo... as you can see, my pottery is starting to look like cookies and cream ice cream, coincidental
  5. I'm looking for help with a recent glaze issue. I've been using the same clay and white glaze for a couple of years. Now, all of a sudden, I'm getting tiny black specks in the glaze, and it's ruining the clean look I'm trying to achieve. I've used different batches of my perfered clay and glaze, installed new elements, throughly vacuumed the kiln, kept my bisqueware clean. I don't know what else to do to, and don't know what's causing the black specks. Does anyone have any insight on this issue?
