Hi there I have no idea if this is the right place for this, OR if these questions have already been answered - I searched, but couldn't find what I was looking for I wanted to know how to use Red Iron Oxide in sections of a regularly glazed piece (see attachments), such as a coffee cup with a red iron oxide section.... 1) How/what is the suggested ration for mixing up red iron oxide to be used as a glaze? 2) Do I do the red iron oxide part of the glazing first, then add the rest of the glaze? (see picture for better idea of what I am trying to explain) 3) There are also pieces that appear to be raw clay in parts of the piece, and then regular glaze? (see white and red tree photo and green coffee cup with faint tree lines) - are these types of works still covered in some sort of oxide? Or is it really just un-glazed areas of the work?
Tenmoku glazed on a dark red clay body. I was told it fired differently on the bottle because they were not all fired together, next time I will leave a note asking to have them be in the same part of the kiln to promote more consistency. First try making a set of something, the tiny cups proved quite a challenge! But it was fun.
This was an experiment to see if I could fire a diamond shaped box with the glaze going around all sides. I did it! The stand is separate from the box but the way I designed the triangle base makes the box fit really snuggle into it. This is also the first time I used a mason stain wash instead of underglaze for the gold background on the box. The modern flowers are an underglaze transfer. The base is a simple RIO wash.
