Glaze Test Results

Recommended Posts

I wanted to post some of the other glaze test results from my firing last week other than the glazes that contained the Alberta Slip.  I have been using a glaze called Flowing Green, very common, A medium green color, breaks brown where thin.  I tried several variations using this glaze and the Alberta Slip glazes.  The photo of the mug is Flowing Green on white stone ware.  It is applied pretty thick on the top. 

 

The test tiles are: #294 Alberta Slip Base under Flowing Green, Redrock

#253 Flowing Green under McGruder Red

#255 Flowing Green under Selsor Temmoku

 

I had a couple of more really great results but am still working on getting the images uploaded and labeled.

I have to give credit to my daughter, Micah, she is my photographer and took all the pictures.

Grype, I will look. Problem is file size. She has a professional type camera that makes a huge file. I h ad to really crop it to get the files small enough to upload. She can't take more pictures for a couple of days.

 

I plan to retest all of the glazes I like on small bowls next. I will try and remember to post another photo of the glaze then.

 

Edit, just talked to my daughter. She said she could retake photos with a smaller file size. Didn't realize this was why they are so large.

Don't do anything out of the way! I use a program called Fotosizer. It is super easy and there is a free version that you can use to shrink photos really fast for forums and stuff. U just drag them in, set a destination folder and click how much u want to shrink them by. Great for quick adjustments for forums. Just a tip.

Wyndham,

 

No, It's not in John's book. But it almost just like a Rutile Blue, or Hare's Blue recipe that I have.  It needs to be applied fairly thin and looks best with texture.  I have  put this recipe in Insight.  There was already a flowing green listed, so I named it Flowing Green 2.

 

Flowing Green 2

 

Neph. Syenite     47.44

Gerstley Borate   27.08

Silica                   20.06

EPK                       4.42

 

Copper Carb          4.0

R.I.O.                     2.0

Rutile                     4.0

 

Grype,

 

my photographer has gone to camp, sorry.

 

Edit:  I have edited the additions to the glaze.  The original amounts I posted were incorrect. Sorry if this has caused anyone a problem.

Since you like this glaze I will post the photos taken with this glaze and the Alberta  Slip Glazes.  They are really fascinating.

I also included a tile with Flowing Green over Selsor Temmoku.  I plan to retest all of these in my next glaze load.  None have crazed.  All are hard.

100% certain that glaze is not going to be food safe with 9.12 copper.

Thanks min,
I wonder if I copied down the amount wrong. I am doing test this week. The place I got the glaze recipe is a public studio. I had better look into this.

 

Edit:  I was worried about this so I looked it up.  I had entered the addition amounts to the glaze wrong.  I have corrected them.  Thanks again Min for pointing this out.  I don't like to post information like this for this exact reason.  Hope no one has copied down the wrong numbers.

Those glaze results are very impressive!  Regarding the editing - am I right in assuming that you edited your first post so that the colorant amounts of 4,2,and 4 now listed are the correct amounts, while the 9, 4, and 9 amounts showing in a later quoted entry are incorrect?  Also at what cone are you firing, and in oxidation or reduction?  Thanks for the post and pix!
