Glaze Tests gone wrong!!

If you’ve read previous blogs you’ll know that I’ve been excitedly exploring new glazes. My main inspiration is one of the most amazing potters in America…..http://www.stevenhillpottery.com/StevenHillPottery/Home.html
I have long drooled over his glaze surfaces, but because he works at cone 10 reduction I could never try any of his glazes! well, about 3-4 years ago he changed over to cone 6-8 oxidation, my range….and since then I’ve been trying out his glazes! He sprays his glazes on in a very fine way, i don’t have the equipment, so I’ve been brushing the glazes on! Just thought I’d show you some more of the results…some not so wonderful!!!

This is what happens when you use too much of one glaze you think is just awesome….Juicy fruit is one of the glazes Steven uses, sparingly, over some of the other glazes! I decided to try to dip the whole bowl in this glaze…..this is what happens!!!

Some of the other combinations were more successful, they didn’t stick to the kiln shelf, they have some very intriguing moments and I love some aspects of them. Much more exploration to be done!

I’m really happy with the glazing patterns on this oval platter.

these 2 bowls worked out really well, but there are a few little blips that i don’t like – but on the whole I’m pretty satisfied.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Love your new experiments!
    even the abstract wall hanging/new canvas-pic #1. Now you might have to work on lightening up the kiln shelf before you hang it on the wall!
