Great glaze! The crackle of the glaze really makes it look like sea ice. The title of the piece is pretty cool, pun intended. How big is this?

Cool. Is most of your work around that height? I'm having a hard time throwing anything taller than 12" any suggestions?

all my stuff is under 12" so... practice raising while standing up; use more clay? :lol:

sorry... I keep going for height but never quite get there

12"! wow I've gotten to about 10" but I could try to use more clay.
Huh, stand up while pulling? I saw a guy in my class do that but it caused him to step on the peddal and it sent his clay flying.

yes, harder to do (new position- needs practice) and got to be careful- especially with the pedal!

don't forget- it shrinks when dried and fired!

when you refired it, did you repeat the same ramp as your initial ramp?

also, what is the glaze recipe you are using on this one?

I am worried about run off. I just had a slowcool firing (not crystalline) and only ONE glaze ran -- but it was one of the few that I did not put a cookie under. It stuck to the kiln shelf and now I have to grind the remaining glaze off of the huge shelf -- its my base shelf in the kiln -- a big 24 inch circle!!!!
dammit!

original Helen's Crystal (Snair) 3% copper

soooo cool! I really appreciate all your help with these crystalline glazes. I hope to be able to do a test firing soon! Please help me understand how to do the wadding. I am waiting for your pic and explanation before I begin! Don't want to ruin any kiln shelves!

wow! thanks so much! I've cut and pasted every bit of your info into a google doc with links to your dA pics -- it gives me so much hope to know that a fellow dA artist got Will Schran's recipe and firing ramps translated into actual crystalline glazes on vases!

I've got two nice bisqued vases from last semester that I can use. I'll throw some other nice ones on white claybodies -- are they glazes supposed to be put on porcelain only or just a light claybody? Or can you use dark claybodies also?

I've been putting them on Laguna's B mix 10... porcelain is best though- rough surface can give too many small crystals (I think).

Laguna B-mix 10 -- that clay can be pretty ornery for me! I'll try it anyway. I have a bunch of clay. I'll also try it on some Nara porcelain. That stuff is awesome! So easy to throw! Fires snow white. Really nice!

I'll post pics of my efforts once I get this project off the ground! Thanks a million for all your help!

Lovely! Its very very cool. Ahh...I wish I could do a crystal firing. That's on my list of things to do. Where do you work, studio wise?

I do all my work at school (where all my notes on glazes are btw... won't open back up till the 10th)

Until then I can give you the following for crystal glazes... [link]
I have only used the Helen's crystal (Snair) so far and experiment is the key

Epic. Where do you go to school, if you don't mind me asking? I won't be back to school until about the 10th where all my other glazes are.

omg.. gorgeous! when you use oxidations in different combinations, you never surely know what you'll get.. But this is so beautiful. Love that cracked look. And the shape is adorable :D If you know what I mean. It's so cute it makes you wanna hug the vase!

The gradient that the glaze creates is amazing. The pot is so cool blue that it practically releases cool energy. If one was to drink tea from it, he would be visually tricked into thinking that its icy cold. Nothing else to say - WOW!

Really nice glaze.
I think it would look wonderful on the top of a spherical form with just a very small opening, a nearly closed form.

Welcome. I think such a nice glaze needs an ample top surface to show their beauty, like on a stage.

Gorgeus! I love the crackle glaze you used!


Is it still called a crackle glaze? I've never worked with porcelain, so I know nothing about it heh...

But this is a really amazing piece. I love how much it reminds me of th ocean.
