My Favorite Glazes
This is my "go to" liner glaze for many pots. It gives a dark brown to black glossy surface with crystals occasionally forming at the bottom of a deep pot giving the interior some character.
New Zealand Tenmoku
Cornwell Stone 50.3
Red Iron Oxide 8.5
This is a charcoal grey smooth glaze. We had it for a while at the AMOCA studio, but people didn't use it. By it's self, Grey Ball is sort of plain and needs some other glazes on top to brighten it up. I put Oribe and/or Hillary's Red over it. Then copper wash over all that. The result is a dark background with green and red spot and a crystal accent all over the piece. See above photo.
Custer Feldspar 24.25
Nickel Oxide 1.00
Cobalt Carbonate .125
I have used three different recipes for Yellow Crystal Matt. The glaze pictured here is a Titanium based formula. There is also a Yellow Iron Oxide recipe and a Rutile recipe. Pots I have fired with the above recipe turn out a lighter yellow color. The color of the yellow crystal matt depends quite a lot on the glaze underneath. Experiment with different clays and glaze compositions before applying it to a pot. Yellow Crystal matt can be runny over glazes like tenmoku and celadons. Test it first.
