How Is This Glaze Effect Achieved?

Recommended Posts

Speculation based on the work by  Tony Hansen on glaze fluidity. Search viscosity or fluidity on the Insight website.


A carefully measured "glob" moist glaze is placed in the center of the horizontal circular surfaces and fired as usual. 

The glaze melts and flows outward to cover the surface. 

Too much glaze and it goes past the edge, not enough and it will not get to the edge. 


Take some testing to get the proper "glob" for each piece.

Are you sure it is glaze, of course it's hard to tell from a photo on the computer,  but it looks like it could be glass for a acrylic.    Denice

hey thanks for your reply, they are advertised as ceramic i was wondering if maybe they use acrylic resin or something like that on the faces and the backs are ceramic.
