Judy

Thanks for the info on the measurements.

Kitoi

I like them cheers they look good and still have a good crackle on them, excellent. The copper carb and nickle has a slight run to it also which is great, I think that this is a good colour to use for a bonsai pot. Not sure how glossy it has come out though as it looks quite shiny in the picture Question

Thanks for posting the results

Regards

Andy

Andy,

Actually, these two pots are not glazed with the same formula you posted earlier in this thread. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get that recipe to work for me. I have made several attempts to adjust your formula without success.

Here is the formula for the glaze shown on my two pots:

Custer (potash feldspar) 83
Whiting 9
Silica (325 mesh) 8
Bentonite 2

I have been working with this formula for the last few months and as you can see the results are very close to yours.

Enjoy,
Paul

Hello you craques Very Happy

A few days ago my results came out of the kiln.
My much older testtile looked pretty good but the glaze of the test-accentpot was too "droppy".
Also the glaze had to be very thick so I applied it by brush.

With the next kiln I have put in a bigger bowl and the glaze was sprayed on. It looked ok but the result is not what I wanted. The glaze seems to miss a little more flow.

And here is my recipe. I hope it can be understood/translated.

83 kali-feldspar
9 chalks
8 flint

On a creamcoloured clay. Fired to 1220°c hold for 20 minutes.

Kind regards
Klaudia

Hi Klaudia

Love the test tile , Dale don't scan too fast Embarassed , and the accent pot is really nice too. Your'e right about the spraying of the glaze though, does not appear to be thick enough to get a good covering.

Thanks for sharing your recipe

Regards
