  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. Bal
  2. Last year I decided to resume my passion for modeling clay and in particular stoneware and porcelain clay. I decided to specialize in single firing (I had a book taken in Scotland several years earlier). At the moment I'm cooking at 1240°C, non-stop. The cooking lasts 3 hours between 0 and 200°C and then travels at a speed of about 100°C per hour (if I remember correctly: the oven is not mine). I'm doing glazes experiment using wood ash. This idea came from the fact that we use the fireplace and in particular the pellet stove for the winter. Wood ash from the pellet stove is
  3. 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, so
  4. 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.
  5. I am looking for a cone 5/6 wood ash glaze recipe that I can use in an electric kiln. Thank you.
  6. Hi! I’ve recently been doing a lot of experiments with clay deposits I’ve found as well as other found materials used in clay or glazed. I’ve been doing a lot of testing with wedging a lot of coarse granite into my clay. It makes it rough to throw with but my hands are tough enough it doesn’t bother me. I’ve usually been applying a found quartz and wood ash glaze that I’ve formulated to these pieces at cone 6 (lots of GB). The glaze gives a nice amber finish and seems to be helping the granite flux as it runs a bit giving nice variation, colour, and texture.
