Great glaze and form on this pot. Reminds me of snow on a rugged mountain range. Thanks for sharing

Wow, that last one is awesome!

I would love to know what kind of resist (wax, latex) you use to produce those glazed cracks.

You work is truly inspirational. Cool

Thanks for sharing-

Horst-
I really like the second pot. It has real integrity. I can imagine thyme rolling out of the overhanging lip. That blue glaze is not something one might use with tableware, but it's perfect for Bonsai. The matt surface and pocked texture definitely add interest.

Right, I use wax to avoid a glaze mix and keep that blue, Rob.

Fantastic Horst!!
Not only are the finishes fantastic but I'm also always impressed with your flat and warp-less ( is that a word?) styles.
Really nice!!

Thanks again all for your friendly comments!

Dale: This one is a bit out of the line Sad

It shows an ash glaze finish. I took wooden ash ( mainly beech), mixed it up with CMC (synthetic adhesive) and aplied it directly. No other components were added. The outcome is a semi matt transparent glaze, which shows a soft green-brown. It runs badly (1250°C).
Best regards Horst

Horst,

I like that drippy look; afterall it is ash, and that is normal, no?

How could you make it more stable? Lower fire temp? Add something with alumina?

How did you prepare your ash?

I like that ash glaze Horst.
I mix up a lot of different ash glazes.
I scoop my ashes out of our fireplace so it's usually mixes of all kinds of wood ,including the newspapers, trash and coke cans my wife keps throwing in! Mad
I'm never suprised what I find in it as I'm washing/etc. during it's prep.
I wonder if the Japanese get Coke cans in their ash?? Very Happy

Horst, I do like the twist in the rim of your piece. It's perfectly on center with the foot notch. And the ash and clay body made a nice pink blush at the rim of the piece. Bravo!
I use several kinds of ash. I save all of my apple wood prunings and burn them for a great ^10 nuka glaze. (1 part ash, 1 part silica, 1 part custer/potash spar) I don't wash the ash. I find that elm ash runs and pools with the best color in the wood kiln. Oak ash is a little too refractory, and pine and juniper ash just runs off the pot with drab color. I haven't used beech, but I will now.

Rob,
no preparation at all. You are right, there is an extreme lack of silica and alumina. That's why there is no body to the glaze and the color is somehow poor. Anyway, I like that reduced glaze.
A more "sophistcated" mix would be 60 ash: 40 feldspar. It also is a good idea to include some clay, that helps to
create a variegated surface, means matt and glossy places, e.g. 60 ash: 40 feldspar: 10 china clay.

To legitimate this posting - some mini-pots:

Best regards Horst
