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!
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?
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!
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 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!
