|Some miniatures and some scaled up pieces with lids. As they get bigger I may have to add handles and lugs.|
|Yesterday I added a work bench and more robust shelving. This small room off the throwing area is where I wedge, store and recycle clay, place pots on the shelves to dry and have a bucket of creek water to wash up in.|
|Here is the same glaze but on a buff stoneware clay body (southstone) All tests were dipped at least twice to get variations in glaze thickness. Note the interesting pattern around the top of this example where the glaze was quite thick.|
|A very typical salt glaze effect. This mottled texture is called "orange peel" and consists of an extremely simple glaze of just two components: Ball clay 50 and China clay 50, fired to 1300+ with plenty of salt.|
|Another A+C Rosser Glaze "Green slip to be sprayed over blue" However, this example shows only the green slip - a very beautiful glaze on its own. I still have the test pottle, so in the next firing I'll try it over the blue slip above.|
In my next firing, I will be using bigger batches of glaze on larger pots and firing a slightly bigger kiln. I'll be using canola oil from the fish and chip shop, and comparing this to sump oil - hopefully getting similar results.
