  1. I'm preparing some recipes for cone 6-7 glazes with washed wood ash. It is not very important that these recipes are perfect, it is important that they are enought different (regarding characteristics of the ingredients) for future experiment with oxides and correction with clay, feldspar or other raw materials. I'm thinking also to mix them one with the other. It is also important that they are not too much problematic, as probably the 4 and 6 recipes that will need to correct spodumene concentration! Recipes 1 (already prepared should be ok) 29,4 Potash feldspar 29,4. Ball clay 36,2 Washed wood ash 5 Bentonite Recipes 2 (already prepared schould be ok) 29,4 Potash feldspar 29,4. China clay 36,2 Washed wood ash 5 Bentonite Recipes 3 (probably ok) 39,3 Soda feldspar 6,2 China clay 21,8 Washed wood ash 6,6 Bentonite 20,4. Quartz 5,7. Zinc ox. Recipes 4 (needs correction) 44,4 Spodumene 22,2 Ball clay 6,8 Washed wood ash 7,1 Bentonite 4,45 Talc 10,6 Quartz 4,45 Zinc ox. Recipes 5 (to have red with red iron ox.) (similar to the original recipe) 44,5 Cornish stone (original recipe was 46,7 potash feldspar) 3,8 China clay 14,3 Bone ash 6,6 Bentonite 16,1 Talc 10,7 Quartz 4 Litio carb. Recipes 6 (hoping to have green with chromium ox.) (needs correction) 46,7 Spodumene 5 China clay 14,4 Washed wood ash 14,9 Colemanite 5 Bentonite 14 Quartz
  2. Is there anyone who uses the ash produced by pellet stoves and has experience on its use? I'm wondering if there are any problems using this ash: I got the impression that the ash is coarser than the fireplace ash. Actually the real difference is perhaps that the ash from the pellet stove is fine and fairly homogeneous but has few very thin particles: it seems fine, because there are not big pieces of coal but perhaps the really thin particles are missing because of the forced stove ventilation. Once washed, the ash from the pellet stove is more difficult to filter and remains darker, sometimes almost black. Is it possible that this aspect gives problems? Can it be solved in your opinion with some adjustments on the stove? First photo is wood ash from fireplace Second photo is from pellet stove The red and blue effect in the photos is a camera fault.
