Text for the glaze tests:
From left: Andrea's Red Tenmoku:
The problem with this glaze in oxidation is that the light clay body =
shows through the transparent black glaze - I hate when that happens - =
it just looks like an oil slick. That's rutile and Nepheline Synenite =
50/50 brushed on.
Next isFalls Church Shino: pretty dull brown
Next is Ron/John Dark Stormy Night with pitting
Next is Richard Busch's Nutmeg: nice depandable glaze - looks sandy
In the back on top is the target glaze: Valda Cox's spodumene in =
reduction used by Gary Pletsch in Pittsburgh
If anyone knows this recipe please enlighten me.
In front is Richard Busch's Satin Matt: another with that wonderful =
touch to it.
I tried removing the rutile from Ron/John's Spearmint and using 2% Cu =
Carbonate applied over raw body and white slip
It's just not an acceptable fake celadon yet - maybe 1% copper
And Ron/John's Raspberry over white slip
I need a gun
That brown plate in the background is Andrea's Faux Shino
I gave up on that thing that was advertised as Cone 6 Electric Shino
It was either an unpleasant orange or a greenish white
