Years ago I made a marbled free form dish from a slab of white, brown and tan clay. I can't remember how I got the tan. I use B-Mix 5. Brown stain for the brown, obviously, but I think I used some red-iron oxide that my son sent me from a trip to Spain. It's all gone. I have a bit of a different dried up RIO from somewhere...Will a little of that turn the B-Mix a nice tan color? I've attached a tiny bit of it...tried to attach the whole thing but kept being told (scolded) that the file was too large. It finally accepted this tiny bit. Sorry you can't see the dish, but at least you can see the 3 colors. Thanks in advance for suggestions! Ginny
From the album: Ceramics Fall 2016Tenmoku 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.
From the album: Ceramic BoxesThis 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.
