Here's one more for your viewing pleasure.



Any thoughts on how this pot is finished?

Cheers,

That is a pretty sweet glaze. It looks like Bailey's red in oxidation. It looks really great on porcelain.

PS Rob- My wife Sara and I are coming down to NCECA this year. If you don't do the convention there are tons of shows in conjunction with the conference that are worth seeing.

Paul, I love the iron glaze in the previous pot. No doubt it would look quite different on another body. Clay bodies do a lot to influence a glaze, as potters well know....

As to the pot that preceded it, the blue with crusty glaze, I think you could definitely use it as a source of exploration. The blue works interestingly off the iron from the underlying glaze; visually they are close to opposite on the color wheel and this could be something to develop further. Perhaps try the same combo on a different form, different underlying textures, etc. I could definitely see a series of this type if it were further developed. One thing is for sure, you should be commended on your freshness and willingness to experiment... Very Happy

Preston,
Thanks for the tip about the convention. I will definitely look into it. Btw, it would be great to meet and talk to you in person, especially in an environment as NCECA can bring!

What about you Robert, are you game?

Paul,
Nie pot! I think Preston may have nailed the glaze, but great application. If I may take a stab at the blue crusty one... Possibly a barium or strontium blue over bone ash???? This could be a game show Laughing
I need to post a few for this game...
Robert

Rob, as for NCECA... I would love to go however I do not want to be sleeping in the kiln shed and my wife is not so fond of the Idea of me leaving her at home with the boys for the Floridia get a way... If any of you make it up in the fall for the Carolina Bonsai Expo maybe we could catch up then.
Cheers!
Robert

Hey Preston,

I'm not familiar with Bailey's red. Is it an iron red glaze?

The one shown is a Tomato red glaze fired in reduction to cone 10.

Yes indeed Rob, the clay body does influence the look of the glaze very much.

This is the Tomato red glaze you have commented on before. It looks very different on porcelain doesn't it?

Here are a few more pots made from darker clay bodies and finished in the same glaze.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this glaze. Your feedback is always welcome.

Good guess Robert, I'll award you 5 points on this one.

That blue crusty one is a barium based glaze. However, it's not applied over anything but the clay body which is a gray stoneware.

Thanks for you participation.

Cheers,
Paul

Paul, I'm not much of a fan of these stretch pots, too much texture for me.

BUT, I do LOVE this...

Paul,
Nice pots as usual. I too am interested in the blue and white pot. I think the color combo is very nice.

Looking forward to seeing you in Orlando next month!

Thanks for the compliment Rob.

In regards to your interest in the blue and white pot, hold that thought. We can discuss it face to face in Orlando.

Cheers.

Hi Paul

Great pots, all very beautiful, i particularly like the turquoise one that you say is a bit different, the texture makes it very tactile.

Cheers Smile

Sorry Rob. You'll have to settle for a knock-off! Very Happy

Convert? I don't know about that, although I do like the green glazed one...

Here are a couple more with that same glaze that came out of the last firing.

Here are two pots that have been finished with a new glaze that I have been experimenting with.




Any thoughts on this finish?

I like your barium blue glaze also. In a gas kiln they can be quite touchy Very Happy but lovely all the same

Thanks Andy, I appreciate you sharing the photo of your pot with the barium blue glaze.

The finish on your pot looks very much like the one I am using. This is a new glaze for me and from my limited experience, I would agree with your that it is quite variable when fired in a gas reduction atmosphere.

Have you found a new kiln yet?

Cheers,
Paul

Paul, am I seeing this correctly as a deep, red wine color? If so, it's not something you see often, and I really like it. Something blooming with white or yellow flowers would be wonderful, yellow fall color too. What does this glaze look like on a white-bodied porcelain pot?

Yes Russell, you are seeing this correctly.

The glaze is called Plum Chun and it is a very dark, varigated plum/wine color.

This particular glaze is a variant of the traditional Chinese Blue Chun.

The two pots shown were made with a white stoneware clay body.

I have not yet tried this glaze on porcelain. That would be the next step in the testing process. I have a group of porcelain pots in the bisque kiln as we speak. My plan is to finish a few of them with Plum Chun and run them through the next glaze firing to see what happens. I'll be happy to post the results when they are ready.

Thanks for your feedback.

Cheers,
Paul
