So there's this glaze one of the potters I follow on IG uses that has me drooling. I'm too shy to ask for a recipe but from scrolling through the feed I see that it's a wood ash glaze fired in oxidation. I don't know if this potter uses real wood ash, all I know is that I don't want to mess with real wood ash myself. I found a few synthetic ash recipes that are supposed to mimic ash sourced from different kinds of burned materials. Also found some wood ash ^6 ox. glaze recipes I want to try that I believe may produce the look I'm after, which is very glossy with tiny white crystals. Those of you who have experience with wood ash glazes - is using synthetic ash as a replacement for real ash adequate? Produces similar results?
