Comments:

Needs to be corrected for fit and pinholes but every clay body is a
different can of worms. The barium/boron eutectic makes it hard to
say what cone this fires to - the longer it is in kiln or the greater
the thermal mass of the kiln the more it will flux. Formulated
originally without the ash or slip clay it was semi-satin, semi-
gloss somewhere around cone 2. Boron subdues the copper coloration.
I'm not taking responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc.
Something is probably toxic. They are examples of my research and
they work out in formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So
go formulate your own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's
probably bad for the environment too. Email me with questions as to
household performance, as that may be indicative of other problems.
The badly crazed surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non
porous sanitary surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas

I used when I was taking classes with Kevin Hluch at Montgomery

oxidation. Not usually as nice in reduction where it is quite brown
although I liked it thin on certain things back then. You can
probably figure from the decimal places that I copied this from a

calculated the amounts rather than testing. Good luck. submitted by:

Comments:

use mixed hardwood ash + CMC Last year, with a lot of help from Tom
Buck and some of the other Clayart gurus, I adjusted one of the old
Daniel Rhodes ash glazes. Original recipe (Cone 9-10): Mixed hard
wood ash 35 Oxford spar 35 China clay 15 Talc 15 I fire in an
electric kiln. I would never describe it as a foolproof glaze, but if
applied with care, it's so beautiful that it just knocks out all the
reliable competition. I bisque at ^06 and am now firing at ^6. I have
gone to ^9, but that seems to present more problems with pinholing
and crazing. Also, I wash the ash. I have also used the same recipe
with unwashed ash. The difference is that I would describe the
unwashed ash glaze as stony matt and the washed ash glaze as opaque
satin matt. Haven't tried this recipe at a lower temperature. You
might want to give it a try. marjory r. kline

Two years ago I took a part-time job teaching
ceramics at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas. The college has only
one kiln. It' an ancient Paragon High Fire. The design is square and
toploading with very small cu. ft. It's been a real challenge to
develop an attractive palette of clays and glazes for oxidation
firing. I do majolica, colored clays, and cone 6 oxidation ( cone 7
in the sitter). Rafael Molina [email protected]

This glaze is for human bone ash. From Bill Edwards 
on ClayArt
http://www.tallapoosariverpottery.com/
The bone ash will need screened and in my case it took
further pulverizing. Once I screen the content I took
some of the larger particles and included it in the
clay. The largest particles left over, and there most
likely will be some, was put in the urns and sealed.
So the finished product contained bone ash in the
clay, in the glaze and in the end after final firing
the cremains left over were sealed in each container
and returned to the family.
some of the small calcined
(from cremation) fragments acted like iron bleeding in
spots through the clay and glaze. It didn't run and I
did add some colorants to this glaze. The results were
nice!

Comments:

Original recipe called for washed ash. Glaze in blue/greyish mottled
matt. I like it but I have not been able to have it bead-up and run.
What chemical should I add to change its' melting characteristics?
Should I fire to cone 7 or even 8? should I soak? I would also like
to have an ash glaze in the green (forest) and brown/tan hues. Any
suggestions? submitted by: Mitch Levison e-mail: [email protected]

A fake wood ash at cone 6 oxidation. It does
run in those rivulets. I added 3% copper carbonate but I am sure some
other colorants would be worth a try. submitted by: Suzanne Fuqua

Comments:

use mixed hardwood ash + CMC  I would never describe it as a foolproof glaze, but
if applied with care, it's so beautiful that it just knocks out all the reliable
competition. I wash the ash. I have also used the same recipe with unwashed ash.
The unwashed ash glaze is stony matt and the washed ash glaze as opaque satin
matt.  marjory r. kline

comments: Use unwashed fireplace ash. Doesn't add to 100 because of
the strontium/barium substitution, the bentonite, and the ash. This
may be closer to cone 5 than cone 6 but seems to work over a range of
a couple cones. This is Zakin's GK base with 15% unwashed, mixed
fireplace ashes, with strontium substituted for barium and superpax
for opax. By itself over porcelain, the glaze is not particularly
interesting. But other glazes on top of it run and drip and blend
together nicely. I've found that if I glaze the lower 2/3 or 3/4 of a
pot with a well-behaved glossy glaze, brush a coat of this ZGK ash
glaze on the top 1/3 or so and then brush or dip some third glaze on
top of the ash glaze, I get a nice pattern of runs that don't go off
the bottom of the pot onto the kiln shelf (usually). Different glazes
give different kinds of runs and bands of different glazes are
interesting too. The few times I tried a matte glaze on the bottom,
the pots cracked. Could have been coincidence. But I've been sticking
with glossy glazes on the bottom since then. submitted by: Janet

Comments:

A variation for light color is to add a small am't (2%) MnCO3. I am
breaking all rules with some of the high-fire stuff from 20 yrs. ago
I couldn't bear to throw out. I use the 20-30-40 over highly textured
clay, painted with either Barnard clay, one of my many old mixes
containing Albany, or even over colored terra sig.s and FIRE TO CONE
6. The terra sig's were never meant for this temp, but they work. The
glaze at cone 6 looks more like an engobe but richer in the valleys
of the texture. I remember how I used this glaze in high fire
reduction and liked it a lot. It can turn gray in reduction. So
experiment with opax. submitted by: Bacia Edelman e-mail:

Comments:

Needs to be corrected for fit and pinholes but every clay body is a
different can of worms. The barium/boron eutectic makes it hard to
say what cone this fires to - the longer it is in kiln or the greater
the thermal mass of the kiln the more it will flux. Formulated
originally without the ash or slip clay it was semi-satin, semi-
gloss somewhere around cone 2. Boron subdues the copper coloration.
I'm not taking responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc.
Something is probably toxic. They are examples of my research and
they work out in formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So
go formulate your own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's
probably bad for the environment too. Email me with questions as to
household performance, as that may be indicative of other problems.
The badly crazed surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non
porous sanitary surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas

Comments:

The base glaze is shiny, almost clear, that is a little fluid at ^6+
. My glazes that get the effect are all at ^6, and usually contain
Boron- whether from Gerstley Borate, a frit, or Colemanite. I use a
dark Rutile, and some zinc- which is a little contradictory, because
of the effect of zinc on Iron colorant. Rutile has a secondary effect
when blue is from Cobalt-- the color effect from Cobalt is somewhat
transparent, and the opacifier effect of rutile gives the Cobalt blue
something to show up against A nice 'hint' of blue can be the effect
of a small amount of Cobalt in a transparent glaze with a fair amount
of Rutile. and Iron wash under it can also cause interesting
variations. This gives a good white with 5% rutile, with opalescent
tones and, with luck and a good clay to work on, some blues. Try
adding a small amount of Cobalt. This glaze seems to have a lot of
ingredients, but I had to change spars, and readjust the recipe using
a line blend to zero in on what I wanted. Note that there is no
clay-- you may need to use a suspender, or add a little Bentonite.
The Strontium I substituted for Barium is a little coarse and can
settle. If you try it- please let me know the results. submitted by:

This is the base for most of my glazes.  It is somewhat shiny.  I like it that way
and I don't care what anyone else thinks!

I mix them to close to 46 on the hydrometer.  The metal oxides effect the
thickness and each variation is adjusted within a range of 45-48. I always layer
my glazes.  I like the way they break when layered.  I dip for at least 3 full
seconds for each coat.  Thin pots need longer.  The glaze goes on thick.  I've
found that fritted glazes tend to thin as they fire.  Three layers of glaze is
generally a bad idea.  The rule in my studio is, “if you insist on using 3 layers,
the third layer must be applied only on the top 1/3 of the pot."

See this glaze in action at: http://www.claylink.com/Dinner2004/cummings.html Or
http://www.claylink.com/Earthenware2005/Cummings2.html

See what my studio members have done with it at:
http://www.claylink.com/cccs2006.html (Actually all of our glazes and clays are
represented in this show.)

I use a black glaze under this glaze on most of my pots.  I have to keep some
secrets.
Variations --
Chrome does well at less than 1%.  Cobalt 1%.  Black iron oxide works better than
red iron.  Copper looks beautiful but causes the glaze to bubble and shiver.
Rutile can be unpredictable.  I use titanium dioxide instead.  Mason stains give
great colors.  Add 5% 6-tile if you want to use encapsulated cadmium stains.

Comments:

Note: the original article calls for Frit 3134. After having
experimented with both 3124 and 3134, we found we liked 3124 better.
I have used the following glaze with the Degussa stains and have
achieved good results. The glaze appeared in an article written by
Gerald Rowan in the December, 1981 issue of CM. It would be worth
getting a copy of the article because there are many color variations
suggested, many of which we've tested and had beautiful results. If
you have trouble finding a copy, e-mail me directly with your address
and I'll mail you one. With 5% tin it is a beautiful, fat white
semi-mat glaze. The clay body you use makes a huge difference. When I
have used the glaze over the GWU clay body (which fires from cones
6-10), the glaze is yucky and transparent. When used over a cone 6
temp clay made with Redart, it is beautiful. Good luck. Barbara

Comments:

I use a cone 3-5, even cone 6 white versatile majolica (electric
firings) for a major client and this glaze shows off its drips quite
well. In fact, it is contributing to some unwanted seconds. The glaze
is a great white, but the application is crutial and I am wondering
about the glaze poise, or the set of the glaze on the ware. I think
the glaze is adequately flocculated with a solution of bentonite and
Flocs, and runs at an SG of about 1.6. We have experimented with
various dipping strategies, to no avail.There are still streak marks,
thick and thin marks, from dipping. The pots are mugs, all the same,
and all glazed the same. Usign tongs with sharpened points, the mugs
are dipped in an arc motion to glaze both the inside and the outside
and as they are raised from the glaze bucket, on an angle, the
interior glaze slowly decants out. There are still streaks and uneven
parts on the ourside surface, but only on the side that the glaze
runs off. The opposite side is perfect. submitted by: Jonathan Kaplan

Comments:

(The following is in response to a glazeing problem that J. Kaplan
was haveing with the original base.) It sounds like the problem is
one of glaze formulation rather than of application. I would guess
that the glaze has too high a surface tension because of the
(relatively) high amount of zinc. Looking at it chemically it looks
like a higher fire glaze that has been brought down in temperature by
the addition of zinc, so the zinc can't just be left out. I guess the
easiest solution is to substitute an oxide with a lower surface
tension for the zinc. That would point to lead, barium and strontium.
I assume that lead and barium are out of the question, so I did a
quick substitution using strontium carbonate. The additions of
bentonite and floccs would definitly help this glaze for dipping.

Comments:

This is not really a glaze, it is too high in secondary fluxes. It
has a snake - alligator like crawling texture. This looks good over a
black slip or over some velvet underglazes. Chemical Analysis Na2O

abnormal expansion effects: B2O3 Here's some recipes for a couple of
crawling glazes. The high magnesium content of the glazes is what
encourages the crawling action. The first one crawls into rounded
bumps. Someone on the list sent it to me. The only problem that I
have with this glaze (and I use the word glaze loosely in this case)
is that after you dip your pieces into the glaze it tends to flake
off before and sometimes during the firing. I usually brush Amaco
Velvet Underglazes on the pots first and then dip them in glaze. The
glaze application should be thick to encourage the crawling... happy

Here's a glaze I adapted from ^10 (just leave out the lithium for
^10). It's a very glossy black black with a very long firing range in
either oxidation or reduction. You may want to add just a touch of
chrome oxide. I've handed this glaze out in my tile workshops for
years, and I know a lot of people have had success with it. submitted

Here's a recipe I used just recently for a dinnerset and it works
very well. Has a nice matte finish and is good for food surfaces. I
experimented with increasing amounts of black stain (I think that's a
mason #?..in any event, not the stain with the cobalt base) up to an
additional 10% and they were all good. submitted by: Dan Taylor

Comments:

Here is one I have used for some time now and have found it to be
very stable. It's not the simplest of recipes and probably could be
simplified but I've never taken the time to do so because I don't use
it that often so a batch lasts for a couple of years and reworking it
doesn't seem to be on the top of my need-to list. So I'll give it to
you like I have it in my grubby little book. I have also added 3%
#6600 Black Mason stain for an even more black glaze. submitted by:

Test fired on Plainsman M340 (an off white clay) in an electric kiln. (I used
Gerstley Borate for the Colemanite) Crawls if thick and can be used on greenware!! My
tests were on bisque. It's dark brown, more runny, semi-gloss breaking to gloss where
thick. BB3 I added 2% Manganese just for fun. This was a more intense version of BB2.

Comments:

We use the second one at cone 6 in reduction, and it gives a
beautiful bright purple. I have also done a series of color
variations on the base glaze replacing the cobalt. The most promising
of those was the one using 6% rutile. It gave a warm tan-yellow. The
outstanding quality of the glaze (aside from the purple, of course)
is the smooth texture and its reliability. submitted by: Rick

Comments:

I substitute Cobalt Carb 2.0. What caught my eye, was the description
of it as slate blue, which doesn't fit my results. So, I picked up
the original recipe, and it differs from the one Sharon posted. You might try this version in your tests. It is
called Floating Blue...from James Chappell's book, Clay and Glazes.
This glaze produces a deep blue-brown background of great depth with
lighter mottled blues that seem to float on the surface of the
background glaze. The glaze has more of the lighter mottled blues
where the application is thickest. Watch thickness near the bottom of
the pot. The C.M.C. measurement refers to a premixed CMC and water
solution. For the Silica, I use 325 mesh Flint. The rutile, is just
powdered rutile from the ceramics supply. It fires best on the light
side of cone 6 (standard cone just bending), seems to get greener and
more fluid the higher you go. Cone 5 works well, too. I do not find a
need for bentonite. The book says to weigh the ingredients very
carefully, use distilled water or water that is known to have a low
mineral content. Mix then add the CMC solution. Sieve two or three
times through a 60 to 80 mesh sieve to thoroughly disperse the
cobalt, iron, and rutile. The book warns that the glaze is fickle,
and recommends against firing this glaze in the same kiln with glazes
that contain copper, chrome, nickel or manganese. Mineral content of
the water is an important factor. I have noticed an adverse effect as
the author noted, and now fire an entire kiln load of this glaze. The
glaze should be stirred occasionally during application because the
iron has a tendency to settle. Chappell's Suggested variations:
Stipple on additional glaze with brush or apply with sponge for an
even more mottled effect. Or: lightly sponge a thin wash of 3 grams
of chrome oxide to 100 grams of water plus a tablespoon of CMC over
the top to produce a floating blue glaze with subtle green tints. Or:
Over the glaze, sponge lightly with a rutile wash consisting of 2
grams rutile per 100g of water for a floating blue glaze with
slightly tan crystalline tints on the surface. submitted by: Candice

I fired cone 6 oxidation pretty exclusively for five years and worked
with many glazes (being a glaze testing maniac). One that I really
enjoyed using, for several years (and I still use it occasionally)
was a Rutile Pale Blue that has no cobalt in it, yet goes most
definitely blue in oxidation. It is a tan mat if it isn't fired high
enough and glossy pale translucent blue (almost celadon-like) at
temp. Usually crazes... Mishy, enjoying an unusually cold and rainy

Comments:

Frank Helme sent me the correct recipe for Blue Spruce. ( I fire with
a ^ 7 in sitter) The recipe published in ClayTimes left out the
Cobalt Carb. I remixed and retested and it is an improvement over the
lime-green (with no copper carbonate). A semi-gloss to glossy
texture. The color is a soft blue gray with some visual
texture/mottling. I also fire it in a ^ 7 Soda in reduction and its a
more intense blue. Good luck! Rafael Molina-Rodriguez

I have a simplecone 6 base glaze that exhibits some very fine
qualities. Then I add the following coloring agents in given
percentages. Zircopax 12% makes the base glaze white Copper Carbonate
makes a nice green I suggest you use both of these together and it
will give you a nice gloss irredecent green in an oxidation fire.

Comments:

Whoever was looking for a Turquoise Glaze. I have 2 recipes for
glazes a pottery teacher gave me. We call them Brilliant Matt Purple
and Brilliant Matt Turquoise. They are volatile so be very careful
with your kiln shelves. There is Barium Carbonate in the recipes, so
they are poisonous whilst in the raw state. Please wear masks and
gloves and if possible work at an extractor fan. I just put a normal
fan pointing out the window and work behind it. I hear from
production potters that Barium can leach thru your skin. Be careful
and practise Good Safety Habits. As you can see they both use the
same ingredients, but in different proportions. I have a friend /
customer (they usually become friends) who is a production potter
(with a 200 cubic foot parafin fired kiln), who uses the BMT and is
delighted with it. He fires to cone 6 (1200/1220 C)You have to watch
your application thickness to get the result you want. We have fired
the BMP from 950 C to almost 1300 C with different results but always
pleasantly surprised. Do not expect consistancy with these glazes.

NOT FOOD SAFE!!!
This was very bronze looking. I was amazed. But it is not for food
containers. I believe you mentioned that you wanted it for tiles?

firing this type of glaze on the bottom of an ancient Paragon
High-fire kiln ( square, top-loading ). This kiln has approximately
one cone differential from top to bottom. I solved the problem of
already fired pieces by refiring them in a hotter zone of the kiln.
The blisters disappearred. Now I place all bronze glazed pieces at or

Comments:

I've applied them to bone dry sculptural work, bisqued them and then
have rubbed stains or oxides into the recesses, sponging off, then
fired again for permanence. They are quite versatile. These recipes
are from Zakin's book on Electric Kiln Ceramics. Some of the clays
used in the recipe are coarse and the slip should not be strined. The
result will be a coarse, sandy-textured surface, not for functional
pieces. They may be applied by dipping, spraying or brushing. They
may be applied to greenware or bisqued ware. They may be used alone
or with stains and glazes. The appearance when fired is soft and
sandy. Candice Roeder

Comments:

A wood-fired surface is another story. I'm not sure it's possible to
simulate the wood ash texture in oxidation. The best results I've
achieved are from the following: These are nice sufaces, but if you
want Richard Aerni-like wood ash texture again I'm not sure it's
possible. Good luck! Two years ago I took a part-time job teaching
ceramics at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas. The college has only
one kiln. It' an ancient Paragon High Fire. The design is square and
toploading with very small cu. ft. It's been a real challenge to
develop an attractive palette of clays and glazes for oxidation
firing. I do majolica, colored clays, and cone 6 oxidation ( cone 7
in the sitter). Rafael Molina [email protected]

Comments:

(An orangey tinted clear glaze - I like it for stone ginger bottles
and other old-timey things) Here are a couple of standards from the
Richmond Potters Club, and a few of my own formulation that have
worked well in ^6 oxidation. They aren't revolutionary (my exciting
ones have things like barium in them, or are less predictable for a
classroom situation) but they have been reliable, and allow for some
play. They all calculate out to well within the INSIGHT limit
formulas for maturity at ^6. If anyone tests these and comes up with
problems, new ideas, good variations etc. could they let me know?
I'll look forward to a larger list being posted to clayart. Veronica

Comments:

part of a series I did to produce a saturated calcia matte glaze
using wollastonite instead of whiting. Note you need to split the
kaolin with calcined kaolin. If you don't the glaze will shrink too
much and crack during drying, then crawl during firing. You can make
your own calcined kaolin by bisque firing a planter full of raw
kaolin. Remember to use 12% less calcined because of the LOI. I also
tried high alumina low silica and sure enough, that gives a matte
too, just like the textbooks say. However the best results came with
both high CaO and high Al2O3 as follows: (this is still under
development) submitted by: Tony Hansen email: [email protected]

Comments:

I've been using a Cone 6-9 oxidation Faux Celadon glaze on porcelain
(Standard Ceramics). It looks quite a bit like a real celadon except
a bit darker. It was fine until about a year ago when I started
getting pinholes AND there would be a slight crawling in some places
on the pot. The pot needed to be refired each time, then the crawling
healed. I tried applying the glaze more thinly, but that didn't
matter, I still got the strange bald spots. Thinking it might be oil
or dirt on the surface, I went over each surface with a dry Scrubbie,
then wiped them down with a damp sponge. I still had bald spots.
Pinholes appeared on the bottom of the pots. (My pots have carved
feet which raise the bottoms of the pots and the bottoms get glazed.)
For a while I thought it was just me, but a colleague of mine used
the same batch of glaze and had the same problem.  submitted by: Sandy e-mail:

I was looking for something like Warren MacKenzie's Glassy Green that
would fire at ^6 instead of ^4. The Boron Lithium in Chappel's glaze

he uses instead. This is also a nice transparent ^6 without

For my black I added these colorants, rather than those above:
Chrome.......1.14 Cobalt Carb 4.55 Red Iron Ox..3.41 I am having a
problem with a glaze. It is a cone 6 oxidation glaze, charcoal
variation of Pinnell Strontium Matt Glaze. I am trying to achieve a
(cobalt)bla variation, rather than the greenish black that the
Charcoal version produces. I took colorants from a favorite black
glaze recipe and used those percentages i Strontium Matt base. The
results were black, but very dry and underfired lookin fire this
glaze to cone 7, BTW) Could the colorants I added have a refractory
effect, and if so, how do I correc problem? Any ideas? I'd appreciate
help on this one. Thanks. Candice Roeder [email protected]

Comments:

plus as much local dark red clay as I can get into it. Then I layer
over it with the same glaze without the clay. This gets a highly
pitted chocolate cake look with a cratered & pinholed glossy surface.
I don't like any of the above glazes inside a bowl. I kinda like more
of a feldspathic glaze for eating/drinking surface. I'm not taking
responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc. Something is
probably toxic. They are examples of my research and they work out in
formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So go formulate your
own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's probably bad for the
environment too. Email me with questions as to household performance,
as that may be indicative of other problems. The badly crazed
surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non porous sanitary
surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas [email protected]

Brute 32 No Weigh! Casting Slip (cone 6)

11 gallons distilled water (35%) One pint Darvan 7 (hold some back to ensure no
overdeflocculation occurs, add as needed to thin)(.5%) 1 bag Tile #6 Kaolin (20%)
1 bag Tennessee #10 Ball Clay (20%) 1 bag Mahavir Potash Feldspar (the new G-200)
(20%) 1 bag Nepheline Syenite (20%) 1 bag Flint (20%)

If working big, add up to 1/2 bag pyrophyllite and accompanying extra water.
(5-10%)

Perfect at 1.75 g/ml and 35-40 seconds run from a Ford Cup style viscometer.

It is not translucent and is decently but not blindingly white. Casts fast,
releases fast, and is plastic enough to alter without crumbles. Perfect shop slip
for midrange group studios.

Enjoy!
Variations --
It is perfect at 20,000g in a five gallon, so 4000g of each ingredient, and 100g
of Darvan, 7000g water. 1000-2000g pyrophyllite if you want to add that.

Comments:

I've been using this on underglaze decorated porcelain though
recommendations stated that it fits most stoneware bodies. It gives a
nice smooth clear finish. There has been some minor crazing on ^10
porcelain fired to ^6, but little to no problems on ^6 porcelain fire
to ^6, for obvious reasons of clay maturity. I'm also curious whether
it scratches easily. submitted by: Carol Durnford e-mail:

Comments:

In response to questions about cone 5-6 clear glazes crazing over
underglazes...I am ever tweaking this recipe, which is coming closer
to a no-craze, nice soft surface on Hagi porcelain. It is still not
perfect with the tiniest evidence of crazing where thick, and I'll
continue to work with it, suggestions welcome. In the meantime,
Laguna's MS-29 crazes NOT, but its limitations aside from cost and
unknown recipe is in developing a rich color pallette. Curt

This glaze is incredibly forgiving - doesn't show drips, overdips, differences in
thickness, is glassy clear w/o yellow, and doesn't craze. It only has 4
ingredients, too. I use this over slips and underglazes and it's fine. I also use
lusters over it with great results. What can I say? This is THE PERFECT clear
glaze.  Laura in Oregon (robert speirs, m.d. 766 x4450 )

Results beautiful except my blue (cobalt) slip went black under this clear. Slip
applied to leather-hard piece, bisqued, then dipped in clear. Anybody with an
answer to whats happening? Is the iron in the OM-4 ball clay joining the cobalt
to make black? I hate to have to abandon this glaze because, like me, its so
cheap and simple. Dale McCleskey, Nashville, TN, USA, Confused.

Comments:

For 2 years I struggled with this concept & finally gave up. The fuel
savings (?) were not worth the effort. The results don't compare to
^10. I agree with Peter Pinnell- sell another mug to pay for the
difference in firing costs. add- 10% iron for temmoku or- 2% tin
oxide & 1% copper carb. for red Due to the lower sintering point of
^6 glazes- you have to start reduction fairly early- at least by
stoneware standards. Try ^010 as a starting point & go from there. I
also used a clay body that had a higher iron content than my present
^10 body- it seemed to make a difference. submitted by: Tom Gray

Comments:

From Kristen Kieffer - her color suggestions above. Also used by Kyla Toomey. Kyla says: This is a fairly
common recipe, but you will often see it with custer rather than the G-200, I've
found the custer makes it a bit more iridescent/milky when thick. I fire in
electric kilns with a 7 or 8 in the kiln sitter, but I do use it with my class
and fire it with a 6 in the sitter and it is reliable as long as it is applied
thin and even.

I have a simple cone 6 base glaze that exhibits some very fine
qualities.

Variations --
Zircopax 12% makes the base glaze white Copper Carbonate
makes a nice green I suggest you use both of these together and it
will give you a nice gloss irredecent green in an oxidation fire.

Comments:

Calls for low-iron spodumene. 2 coats best - let dry between. Slow fire toward the end. CMC needed especially
for erbium for good suspension. Copper carb used to preserve CMC. A bit runny at
C5, but clear. C8 stable but not as transparent as C6. Barium has a positive
effect on lanthide color solubility and gives more lusterous glazes. This glaze
has been tested and fired as stated there is no Ba leaching. From David Pier.

A fabulous clear glaze! I tested about 15 clears last year and only came up with 2
that I would consider using. This glaze is incredibly forgiving - doesn't show
drips, overdips, differences in thickness, is glassy clear w/o yellow, and doesn't
craze. I am absolutely thrilled with this glaze. It only has 4 ingredients, too. I
use this over slips and underglazes and it's fine. I also use lusters over it with
great results. What can I say? This is THE PERFECT clear glaze. Have fun. Laura in

Parker Gloss and Gronborg Clear are very similar. I include both
because the coefficient of expansion is just different enough for you
to tell which way to go if they do not fit your body. And, yes, I
know they all have barium in them. Not much, though, so you could
probably substitute 3/4 as much strontium carb, and not affect them
much, or possibly just leave it out. I hope this helps. Paul Lewing

Comments:

Parker Gloss and Gronborg Clear are very similar. I include both
because the coefficient of expansion is just different enough for you
to tell which way to go if they do not fit your body. And, yes, I
know they all have barium in them. Not much, though, so you could
probably substitute 3/4 as much strontium carb, and not affect them
much, or possibly just leave it out. I hope this helps. Paul Lewing

Candice Roeder - (for me it was shiny clear) originally SG-42 from
Chappell book (I used 325 mesh flint, and amorphous silica - which
stopped crazing) This was used on a stoneware (Standard 182G) and
primarily on porcelain 135 from A.R.T.... Fired to cone 6 (standard
cone)....same schedule of firing each time. Candice in 0 degree rural

The clear was lovely over the white slip but pinholed majorly over
the blue. The blue had been poured on over my cream clay body
plainsman M-340. Well if anyone can let me know why the pinholing on
the blue that would be great (I suspect it must be a cobalt annoyance
or something because the clear glaze was o.k on the white slip and on
the regular clay itself). Also if anyone has another recipe to try
that would be helpful. submitted by: Cheryl Brown e-mail:

Comments:

In use RLC. Note: 1/2 cup Epsom Salts / 10000gm. eliminates settling.
Frit 3195 may be substituted for 3110. Good reduction yields blood
red. Oxidation is celadon-like green. Apply medium / thin won't be
red / thick it crawls. If overlapped on another glaze - may crawl.
Here is a formula that has recently been used here at Richland
College, Dallas, Tx. I can't give you much information about the
firing itself, since it was done by one of the other instructors.
What I can tell you is that the colors seemed to go from Fire-engine
red to red with blackish areas. Did not seem to run a lot. Possible

There was an article in ceramics Monthly, Feb 1990 on
lichen  glazes. I tried the Ball Crawl glaze. worked fairly well, but
could be chipped off the pot too easily. this made me try putting it
over another glaze. submitted by: Kathy Darby e-mail: [email protected]

Comments:

Diverse color. 100% reliable. Cone 6 oxidation yields beautiful results/normal
firing cycle. good results cones 4-6 - Interactive effect with other
glazes:beautiful with cobalt glazes. It is from (of all places) a Reader's Digest
craft book. It is a nice fat cream to beige glaze. Glossy but not garish. Breaks
to reddish brown where thin. If your clay body has much iron in it, the reddish
breaking is quite pronounced, with speckles. I use it on white stoneware up to
cone 7, and sometimes on porcelain, (though on porcelain it is less earthy
looking). It is a nice neutral earth tone. Stores well, coats well. Well behaved
and forgiving. Dark slips used underneath will show through.  I've fired it as
low as 5 and as high as 7. submitted by: Candice Roeder e-mail: [email protected]

I didn't have any soda ash, so I didn't add it. This was a dark brown
glossy glaze very much like Alberta slip in cone 9, but darker. From

I also have a dark brown gloss recipe for ^6 but have not yet tested
it How nice to be able to share something from my books, I have been
so pleased with some of the recipes that I have tested from other
clayart subscribers. I only wish that I could give proper credit to
the originators of these but I am afraid I was amiss in recording
such info. Sue on a rainy day in British Columbia - how unusual sue

from Plainsman Clay (Alberta) here's a brown that we have used for
years in our studio: Apart from being dark, brown and matt, this
glaze goes on well, covers well and looks good with many other
glazes. Hope it's one you add to your recipe book. Geri Huntley

Colorants can range from 10.5 to 21, but 15 is entered as an average.
A few years ago I participated in a workshop with Randy Brodnax who
work with lichen glazes, among other techniques. His recipes follow.
We covered the bisqued pot with the black englobe, (brushed on) and
then dipped the pot in the lichen glaze. Then colored commercial
underglazes were sprayed on the glaze. Wonderful effects. The black
engobe gives better contrast with the lichen glaze. I also tried the
lichen glaze both over and under my regualr cone six glazes, some
very interesting, very nice effects. try it. submitted by: Kathy

Comments:

The base glaze is shiny, almost clear, that is a little fluid at ^6+
A nice 'hint' of blue can be the effect
of a small amount of Cobalt in a transparent glaze with a fair amount
of Rutile. and Iron wash under it can also cause interesting
variations. This gives a good white with 5% rutile, with opalescent
tones and, with luck and a good clay to work on, some blues. Try
adding a small amount of Cobalt.  Note that there is no
clay-- you may need to use a suspender, or add a little Bentonite.
The Strontium I substituted for Barium is a little coarse and can
settle. If you try it- please let me know the results. submitted by:

EPK for a less runny glaze, but I fire closer to ^7 than to ^5.

Comments:

Parker Gloss and Gronborg Clear are very similar. I include both
because the coefficient of expansion is just different enough for you
to tell which way to go if they do not fit your body. And, yes, I
know they all have barium in them. Not much, though, so you could
probably substitute 3/4 as much strontium carb, and not affect them
much, or possibly just leave it out. I hope this helps. Paul Lewing

I use this over slips and there has never been any crazing. Where it
is a little thick it shows white. For a blue I added: Cobalt
Carbonate .5 % Manganese Carbonate 5.0% For a beautiful blue-gray:
Chrome Oxide 4% Tin Oxide 5% In response to request for cone 6
glazes...This glaze was in a former post from someone else, but I
have been using it for years. Some results of my testing are below. I
fire in electric and use a commercial brown/black clay. This glaze is
simple and dependable from firing to firing. Phyllis Nelson Baker

For Pat Chesney- I use a gloss white glaze that it supposed to mature
at cone 4 -8. I fire it to 6-7, so I haven't personally tested it at
4. I got the recipe from Eastern Ill. Univ. Hope this helps. from

Comments:

one Type: Orton Clay Color/Type: Brown stoneware Clarity: Opaque
Crystals: None Clustered, Dispersed Bubbles Within Glaze: No Glaze
Flow: Little flow Glaze Type: What Makes This Glaze Unique:
It is an extremely intriguing glaze because
of the variety of color and surface quality that it yields depending
on the clay color, thickness of the glaze and whether or not it
overlaps another glaze.
Firing data: only tested at cone 6 and 7 -
Surface quality variations: Applied thickly, the color is almost a
gun metal black with a waxy to satin matt finish over buff, brown and
porcelain clays. Lighter coats, especially over buff clays yield
greens and blues and almost a glossy surface. - Kiln size,
manufacture and type: Skutt 1027 - Effects of firing to different
cones: - Coloring oxides, stains and opacifiers tested: - Known glaze
flaws: - Apparent viscosity for pouring and dipping: - Application
thickness: Depends on the desired effect. It can be dipped, but
brushing yields more interesting effects and greater color variety. -
Effects on different clay bodies: See above - Interactive effect with
other glazes: One of the most exciting effects develops when using
this over a white glaze covering porcelain clay. An extremely light
coat brushed on yields bright sea blues and greens with patches of
almost gold. Over the same white glaze on buff clay, the cobalt blue
dominates. (The white glaze I use tends to turn virtually clear over
buff or brown clay, leaving a glossy, faintly white blue finish.) -

Comments:

But this ain't no Kermit green. Very stony
matte with very hard surface. I suspect it was a tile glaze. Joe
Zeller supplied the base, I went ape with the copper. I'm not taking
responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc. Something is
probably toxic. They are examples of my research and they work out in
formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So go formulate your
own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's probably bad for the
environment too. Email me with questions as to household performance,
as that may be indicative of other problems. The badly crazed
surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non porous sanitary
surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas [email protected]

(Richmond Potters' Club standard, unknown origin) (a very dark green
matt - usually boring on it's own but excellent for over-dipping or
otherwise slurping around. Also a good base glaze - the copper can be
replaced with judicious amounts of other colourants, and they all
make pleasant matt glazes.) Here are a couple of standards from the
Richmond Potters Club, and a few of my own formulation that have
worked well in ^6 oxidation. They aren't revolutionary (my exciting
ones have things like barium in them, or are less predictable for a
classroom situation) but they have been reliable, and allow for some
play. They all calculate out to well within the INSIGHT limit
formulas for maturity at ^6. If anyone tests these and comes up with
problems, new ideas, good variations etc. could they let me know?
I'll look forward to a larger list being posted to clayart. Veronica

Comments:

The other day a matt turquoise glaze was posted on Clayart. I am
suggesting that midfire potters not use this Maryland glaze for food
containers. It doesn't have enough silica to keep the copper properly
bound when faced with food acids. Adapting the same Seger formula,
this recipe is more balanced. Only tests will show if these yield an
acceptable colour and surface on your claybody. submitted by: Tom

I got this copy of Randys Green at a workshop, where it was described
as a C 10 glaze. It works very well as is at C 5-6 and is a deep
forest green, slightly translucent. Occasionally I have underfired it
to C4, where it becomes matte and slightly metallic and looks very
nice. I hope this helps. Leslie [email protected]

rutile. I know this doesn't add up to 100, but that's the way it was

Comments:

originally suggested 7-10% copper carbonate. a deep green translucent
that I like over white glazes, for a mottled, opaque effect. Also
nice layered with cobalt blue glazes. I have found that many cone 10
glazes will at least do something interesting at cone 6. Try it!

Comments:

I got this copy of Randys Green at a workshop, where it was described
as a C 10 glaze. It works very well as is at C 5-6 and is a deep
forest green, slightly translucent. Occasionally I have underfired it
to C4, where it becomes matte and slightly metallic and looks very
nice. I hope this helps. Leslie [email protected]

^6 in sitter- average bend; on buff stoneware; no soaking; nice glaze
but not too white, seemed more of a tan esp. where thin. not the rich
fat white that would imitate majolica. my overglazes seemed to run
and or bleed together alittle, can definitely see movement in them.
glaze fits fine. these results were consistent on all 4 tiles. my
overglazes were -by volume sea green stain 1 gerstley borate 1 deep
crimson stain 1 gerstley borate 1 ball clay 1 Saturn orange stain 3
gerst. borate 3 ball clay 1 the overglazes tend to seperate more when
the base glaze is thicker on both test and at 04 at 04 they are
excellent submitted by: Ed Brownlee e-mail: [email protected]

Comments:

Parker Gloss and Gronborg Clear are very similar. I include both
because the coefficient of expansion is just different enough for you
to tell which way to go if they do not fit your body. And, yes, I
know they all have barium in them. Not much, though, so you could
probably substitute 3/4 as much strontium carb, and not affect them
much, or possibly just leave it out. I hope this helps. Paul Lewing

Comments:

A few years ago I participated in a workshop with Randy Brodnax who
works with lichen glazes, among other techniques. His recipes follow.
We covered the bisqued pot with the black englobe, (brushed on) and
then dipped the pot in the lichen glaze. Then colored commercial
underglazes were sprayed on the glaze. Wonderful effects. The black
engobe gives better contrast with the lichen glaze. I also tried the
lichen glaze both over and under my regualr cone six glazes, some
very interesting, very nice effects. try it. submitted by: Kathy

Used powdered rutile. Here's a peach I've developed; maybe it will
give you a starting point. Be sure to try it at different
thicknesses. I've fired it from cone 5-8 with best results at a high
cone 6 or low 7. Can get runny at 7 if applied too thick. Good luck!

From Suzanne Storer. My colorants consist of mason stains ground with the glaze in a mortar
and pestal in parts 1/1 or 1/2 stain to glaze.  Duncan ez strokes over the
base white also work very well.  Some, like EZ Coral Red need to be fired
only to cone 4 as they bubble at a higher temp.

Comments:

Variation of Mid-range Majolica that replaces Gerstley borate with a
frit to eliminate surface blemishes of the overglaze majolica
colorants. Ferro Frit 3134 can be substituted for Pemco Frit P-54.
Good as a majolica-like opaque white glaze with oxides and stains
brushed over it. Very stable - does not run, applies well with a
brush or by other methods. Doesn't craze on cone 10 porcelain fired
to cone 6 - test on cone 6 body. Tested on Aardvark stoneware clays:
(listed best to worst for smooth surface) Porcelain, Hopkins White
60, Joe Soldate 60, Rio Red (the last two may have a fairly gritty
surface, even at cone 6). Possible Glaze Flaws:  This glaze is fairly
powdery without any binder. It will crawl slightly if applied too
thickly followed by a wash of color on the raw glaze. YOU MUST add
CMC to glaze batch to harden the raw surface of this glaze. Use about
one tablespoon of CMC powder (soaked in a pint of hot water
overnight) per 3000 gram batch. Colors: Use mason stains mixed 50/50
with Pemco frit P-25 or Ferro Frit 3124, or use 70 stain/30 gerstley
borate in a watery mix for colors over glaze or some combination of
gerstley borate and frit. Using too much gerstley borate may make the
stain change color or become pastel. Purple stains may need to have
more flux added up to 3 parts flux to 1 part stain. If you use all
frit, add liquid starch or CMC to colors for easier brushing and to
minimize smearing before they're fired. A small amount of bentonite
may also help to keep the all-frit mixture from settling out.  These
binders are not as necessary with the gerstley borate. Use these
Duncan EZ-stroke transparent underglazes as overglaze wash for color:
EZ003, EZ004, EZ007, EZ012, EZ014, EZ019, EZ020, EZ021, EZ024, EZ025,
EZ027, EZ028, EZ030, EZ032, EZ161. Almost all the other EZstrokes
will work, especially if thinned slightly. The dark blue and the
orange EZstrokes will wrinkle and get rough if applied too thickly.
Cover coat CC 154 should work as well. Most other Cover Coat colors
will work when  thinly applied, but may be dry if thick. Try adding a
teaspoonful of frit or gerstley borate to a jar of CC underglaze for
glossier color. Other color possibilities include washes of the
common colorants (mix chrome and rutile 50/50 with gerstley borate or
frit). A thin red iron or red earthenware slip or possibly a red
terra sigillata on the foot or other exposed clay areas makes a nice
contrast if used on a white clay body.  Richard Burkett 1991. Other
color possibilities: A nice dark blue green with: 2% cobalt carb + 3%
chrome oxide + 2% black iron oxide added to the glaze. SDSU 1992

Comments:

  From Linda Litteral - SDSU Glaze class 1996. She called it 'A-7
Chinese.' Tested for new Midrange majolica for class use. Almost
boron free - good for stain colors that are subject to dissolving in
boron glazes.
  Very stable, does not move during firing unless quite thick. Will
crawl slightly if very thick. Applies well either by dipping or
brushing.
  Works well with almost all Duncan EZ-Stroke underglaze colors as
majolica washes, as do Amaco velvet red versions of the zirconium
encapsulted red stains. Probably most stains would work well also.
Color possibities: Use mason stains mixed 50/50 with Pemco frit P-25
or Ferro Frit 3124, or use 70 stain/30 gerstley borate in a watery
mix for colors over glaze or some combination of gerstley borate and
frit. Using too much gerstley borate may make the stain change color
or become pastel. Purple stains may need to have more flux added up
to 3 parts flux to 1 part stain. If you use all frit, add liquid

underglazes as overglaze wash for color: EZ003, EZ004, EZ007, EZ012,
EZ014, EZ019, EZ020, EZ021, EZ024, EZ025, EZ027, EZ028, EZ030, EZ032,
EZ161. Almost all the other EZstrokes will work, especially if
thinned slightly. The darker blues EZstrokes will wrinkle and get
rough if applied too thickly. CoverCoat CC 154 should work as well.
Most other CoverCoat colors will work when thinly applied, but may be
dry if thick. Try adding a teaspoonful of frit or gerstley borate to
a jar of CC underglaze for glossier color.
  Other color possibilities include washes of the common colorants
(mix chrome and rutile 50/50 with gerstley borate or frit). A thin
red iron or red earthenware slip or possibly a red terra sigillata on
the foot or other exposed clay areas makes a nice contrast if used on
a white clay body.

*Variations:
 Other color possibilities: A nice dark blue green with: 2% cobalt
carb + 3% chrome oxide + 2% black iron oxide added to the glaze. Or
almost any commercial stain added to the glaze in 5-12% amounts.

*How long have you been using this glaze?
 About a year.

*Where is it used?
 San Diego State University

*Where did this recipe come from?
 From Linda Litteral - SDSU Glaze class 1996. She called it 'A-7
Chinese.'

*What do you like most about this glaze?
 very stable, good support for most stain colors

*Is this glaze reliable?
 very, but like many majolica glazes it may crawl if applied too
thickly.

*Does this glaze tend to craze/crawl/pinhole/etc.?
 like many majolica glazes it may crawl if applied too thickly.

*How do different firing temperatures/atmospheres affect the glaze?
 should work in oxidation or reduction firings, but not with all
stain colors.

*How does the glaze behave on different clay bodies?
 best on finer textured clays or smooth, well-ribbed surfaces if used
on more heavily grogged clay bodies.

*How thickly should the glaze be applied to the pot?
 medium (average) application for best opacity. may crawl if too
thick.

*How does this glaze interact with other glazes?
 should work with most other glazes like any typical white gloss
glaze, due to the low boron content

*What is your kiln type and size?
 Alpine Globar, approx 8 cu. ft.

*How do you typically fire?
 6-8 hour heating, 24-36 hour cooling, no soak.

*Do you experience problems with the raw glaze?
 may settle badly without the bentonite/epsom salt addition. Adding a
small amount of CMC gum solution may also help a bit and harden the
raw glaze surface.

Comments:

Here are a couple of C 6 glazes that I use with my speckled
brownstone in ox. A very even matt when well applied. Below C6 can be
dry and scaly. The success of this glaze depends on the clay body. As
stated from the book. I like the way it looks with Randy's Red and I
have used it in combination with other colored glazes with good luck.

Here's a recipe I used just recently for a dinnerset and it works
very well. Has a nice matte finish and is good for food surfaces. I
experimented with increasing amounts of black stain (I think that's a
mason #?..in any event, not the stain with the cobalt base) up to an
additional 10% and they were all good. submitted by: Dan Taylor

cone 8 over coloured slips which is matt but lets the coloured slips
show through. This is in oxidation over a buff stoneware glaze. In
case this sounds what you are after and interesting to you, I give
the recipe below, which I have translated from the UK sourced
materials that I use, into North American materials. Actually the
difference is very small. submitted by: David Hewitt e-mail:

 Here a the glazes we've found work out
OK, and are currently studio shop glazes. We have noticed that a
slightly heavier reduction is needed for cone 6 than in cone 9/10.

EXPAN 592.94 WEIGHT 214.43 I have test results for the original
simple glaze and Ron's 2 complicated versions. All 3 glazes were
tested on white and red stoneware, vertical and horizontal tiles.
They were all fired in the bottom half of my Skutt to cone 6
electric. The firing took approzimately 12 hours with a 1 hour soak
at top temp. I added 2% rutile to all the glazes to test for color
response, and used OM4 ball clay (instead of bell dark). I was
somewhat surprised at how similar the glazes came out. The vertical
tiles were virtually identical. All three were a soft gray opaque
matt. My white stoneware has a little granular illmenite in it, and
small spots bleed through. I double dipped 1/2 of each tile, and the
glaze ran just a little. There was no discernable crazing. The
horizontal tiles had noticable differences. These tiles were more
mottled than the vertical ones, kind of like on oatmeal effect. The
original glaze was a warmer gray than either of the 2 complex
versions. The second complex version, where thick, was dry and
sugary, and more silvery than either of the other 2. On all tiles,
the red stoneware was more of a tan color than the white. Terri

Comments:

This produces a soft white matt glaze. One might wish to substitute
strontium carbonate for the barium especially for use on functional
ware. This glaze contains a great deal
of lithium, such glazes may flake off of the ware and one should not
use more then 5%. This is a high alumina glaze which
shall have a rather modest glaze flow. It will be a soft white matt
or a satin matt. Without barium it may be more towards the satin matt
texture. Harold J. McWHINNIE Email:[email protected]

Our Guild has a cone 6 recipe (originally from Connie Pike) which
turns very purple if you add 2% cobalt oxide to it. You might try
adapting it for higher temperatures. Good luck - purple and lilac
sound very Eastery and springlike, which it is NOT, here in

Comments:

source: Michael Bailey, Glazes Cone 6 This is a "kaki" (plum) saturated iron red.
It can be a brilliant red-orange with just the right amount of iron. It does
better if you do a controlled cooling as it is a crystalline glaze and needs the
slow cool for the crystals to grow (fast cool will yield a chocolate brown
gloss).You have to do a line blend on this one to get it right as iron oxides are
never the same. I use Spanish red iron oxide. Generally increments of 1% RIO will
be fine. But, you really need to do the line blend to get the best red and to
fully appreciate the range of colors in that small range of RIO additions.

Comments:

An even better electric kiln glaze at cone 6 for refiring at cone 06
yto to get a rich red. fire at cone 6 and do nothing but take it out
of the kiln and look disappointed and then put in and refire at cone
06. Next direction, take out and enthuse over change and improvement.
Hope this is of interest. Lana Wilson [email protected]

Comments:

Here's a neat plum glaze, rather misnamed 'Nickel Pink.' It's 6^ ox.
and comes from Emanual Coopers recipe file. Was printed in Ceramic
Review May/June/87. When it is applied rather thickly, it is a
beautiful rich plum color, breaking on the edges to a leather brown.

Comments:

(Mimi Obstler's Out of the Earth Into the Fire p147) Here's the
recipe, fired to about cone 5.4 or 6.2 (depending on which cone you
want to read). Or fired to 1200C at 50C/hr. I added 1%
TiO2 which gives a nice blush of crystalline effects, without the
yellowish orange you get from rutile. Where this glaze is thicker
though and right together with the crystals/bubbles, there's a foamy
texture inside the glaze. I can tell because I fire on stilts and
when the stilts come off, a little circular crust of glass stays on
the stilt pin and the interior of the glaze where the stilt pulled
off the surface looks like froth. Foam. (P.S. is this behavior an
indicator of a fit problem?) So the glaze goes onto greenware and
gets put in the kiln on stilts. Fired. Tons of what I thought were
crystals but maybe they really are bubbles, as revealed by the froth.
The presence of some sharp-edged pinholes argues that my crystals are
bubbles maybe. Conventional wisdom I: soak more or cool more slowly.
Done that I: Goes up to temp at 60C/hr, soaks 25 minutes, cools at
150C/hr to 900, then at 60C/hr to 700. If it gets any slower than
that, won't I be a laughing stock? Conventional wisdom II: try
refiring to convince yourself that it needs to soak some more. Done
that II: Refired a set of pieces. Foam is still there. Some of the
sharp edged pinholes have closed up. I have used this same recipe
with 8% rutile (lovely effect by the way if your rutile is finely
enough ground). It doesn't exhibit the same problem as far as I can
see. A few pinholes where quite thick but nothing like this. So. Is
this because titanium actually makes a glaze more refractory? I'm
kinda puzzled about calculating how to make something melt more
smoothly. Especially since it already seems totally loaded up with
melter, all that boron. Thanks for any pointers to enlightenment Jan

Expansion coefficient: 68.0 x 10e-7 per degree C Oxides causing
abnormal expansion effects: B2O3 The question that I have for Ron is
about the expansion of the glazes listed below. A while back you told
me that the expansion for the PMSP-4 glaze was a little low. You sent
me a revised version which had a slightly higher expansion. I then
looked at Tony Hansen's 5-20 glaze and found it to be pretty close to
my PMSP-4. What range do you think the expansion should be in for a
cone 6 oxidation glaze? PMSP-4 Expansion coefficient: 68.0 x 10e-7

x 10e-7 per degree C Tony Hansen's 5-20's glaze Expansion
coefficient: 69.2 x 10e-7 per degree C In terms of my experience
firing these glazes, I have found the PMSP to be water clear. Your
revision to be mostly clear with bubbles only in areas of relief
where the glaze has pooled. The 5-20's glaze for me was cloudy. I'm
wondering if Ron Wright is getting more bubbles because he is trying
to get a THICK clear? My clear gets a 4 second dip and I can't find
any bubbles in it under a 1.5x magnifying glass. For anyone following
this thread, all of the above glazes are given below. All are cone 6
oxidation. My firing takes about 8-9 hours to bend a large cone 6 and
then I soak the kiln for another half hour to hour until cone 7 is at
2 o'clock. I then turn all of the switches to medium for 3 hours
before shutting it off. The correct formula for Post's PMSP-4 is this
one. The one posted on the database is incorrect. John Post

Comments:

 This is a very reliable glaze.  The surface is very smooth to the
touch.  It would be a good glaze for color variations. We have done a
small amount of testing with mason stain additions and it seems to
respond well to most colors, particularly the yellow.

*How long have you been using this glaze?
 In a college studio setting for about a year.

*Where is it used?
 Anne Arundel Community College

*Where did this recipe come from?
 I have two versions of this glaze.  This is the best and I am not
sure if it came from the Penland Pottery book or not.  I don't know
the source of the other one.

*What do you like most about this glaze?
 The reliability and the feel.

*Is this glaze reliable?
 Yes, very.

*Does this glaze tend to craze/crawl/pinhole/etc.?
 We have had some crawling when it is applied thickly or overlapped
heavily with other glazes. Controlling the thickness is essential.

*How do different firing temperatures/atmospheres affect the glaze?
 It seems to stand up well to temperature variations.  When it is
hotter it will tend to go more translucent.

*How does the glaze behave on different clay bodies?
 The color is pretty powerful.  Over a stoneware body in reduction it
will go a bit darker, and it will be brighter and bluer over a white
body.

*What consistency should the glaze be for pouring/dipping?
 A cream consistency, so that you can see the cutile of your fingers
when a hand is dipped in the glaze.

*How thickly should the glaze be applied to the pot?
 Medium, a full 3 second dip is adequate.

*How does this glaze interact with other glazes?
 It breaks up nicely and goes to a navy blue when used with our clear
glaze.

*What is your kiln type and size?
 Most of our work with it has been in an Alpine 20 natural gas kiln.
We have also used it in a 23" dia. L&L econo kiln.  The colors in
oxidation are a bit lighter, and the surface is not as smooth.

*How do you typically fire?
 The gas schedule is just 7.5 to 8 hours to reach cone 6.  We fire
between cone 6 and 7.  Reduction starts at cone 010, and continues to
cone 6, with the dampers being opened gradually as the firing gets
closer to completion, but we maintain reduction to the end. No soak.
We close the dampers but don't close the burner ports.  We open the
kiln 36 hours later.  It is usually still pretty warm a the top.

*What is your water pH?
 very close to 7

ketchup red, more like the ketchup red from the time we had an
abundance of ripe tomatoes and overcooked a batch of ketchup.
However, it had a frosting of tan and the plate and bowl are great
looking. The glaze tended to flake off when dry and required careful
handling on non-grolleg ^6 porcelain (Standard Ceramics # 213). Has
satin finish.   Bonnie

One thing I will say is the 'Red pink to Purple Mauve' turned out
great. It is more of a deep red-violet. I did not find it purple when
applied thick but happy with it as it is. I'll mess with it and keep
trying. This was fired in elect on dillo white clay. submitted by:

comments: A very nice base comes from Randy's Red with the iron
omitted. You can add up to 10% zircopax or other whitener, I would
suggest 5% for starters. Works good with other colorants also. Cobalt
carbonate will give a purple. Very Stable!  Rose Downs submitted by:

Comments:

Can use a calcium borate frit instead of gerstley borate (try Ferro
frit 3124). (fine SiC) In the book Glazes by Emmanuel Cooper (in the
Complete Potter series), Mr. Cooper states: In electric kilns
reduction be achieved in the glaze by the addition of small amounts
of silicon carbide. A powerful flux such as calcium borate frit or
borax frit is needed to break down the silicon carbide while the
glaze also needs to be sufficiently fluid to allow the gas formed to
be released if a smooth surface is required. I have not personally
tried this. Have fun whomever wants to.... Anne Worner

Comments:

I've spent the last
3 years working on cone 5 iron red glazes, starting with Randy's Red,
and I've found some things that work to make it redder. I started by
taking each ingredient, cutting it down, and gradually adding it back
till I had double the amount in the recipe. I found some adjustments
that work. Then I researched adding other ingredients in various
amounts, and found a couple that seem to help. My new recipe I call
Towy Red, after my dog. He's a Welsh Springer Spaniel, and has spots
this color. He's named after the River Towy in Wales (rhymes with
Howie). Then I tried different irons. I tried black iron, yellow
iron, and 5 different reds, including Spanish Red. I found that the
redder it was before it was fired, the redder it would be after. The
best I have found so far has been an iron from Pfizer that is bright
red-orange raw. I'm almost out, and don't know where to get more. Any
suggestions? The Spanish Red I got from a local supplier, and it's
earthy red-brown. To get the red,
you need a lot of calcium, and almost as much, but not more,
magnesium. All of these iron reds have a very high silica/ alumina
ratio, at least 20 to 1, some as high as 100 to 1. Of course they run
like the Energizer Bunny, but I only use them on tile. submitted by:

Comments:

use OM-4 Ball clay or equal (eg, Bell Dark) use Custer feldspar (or
equal, eg, G-200 f.s.) Recently, a glaze recipe for satin black was
posted here with a request for revision to C6 brown in oxidation.
Here is such a recipe. C6 Base Glaze, oxidation or reduction Add 2-5%
iron oxide red for browns; 1-2% Cobalt carbonate for blues; 2-4%
Copper carbonate for greens. Try other colourants for variation. On
some bodies, the glaze may require a 30-minute soaking. The Seger
formula for the revision above is: CaO 0.51; MgO 0.24; KNaO 0.25;
Al2O3 0.40; SiO2 4.10 which places the glaze in the middle of the 3-7
cone range. The glaze will be glossy Ratio = 10.3 and it should fit
most stoneware bodies, perhaps even some porcelaineous stonewares
since the Expansion coefficient is 6.6x10-6. The original glaze as
cited was relying on the high level of colourant oxides to help bring
it closer to balance but it would be overfired at C9 (if the body
fails to release silica to the glaze). Tom Buck Hamilton ON Canada

I have never ommitted Barium in this ^4-^8 oxidation glaze actually i
have not used the glaze in years. But it is a great oxidation glaze
and I considered using it next year at the school where I teach.
However, the barium scared me. IF barium Carb can not be ommited is
there a safe substitute? submitted by: Charles Gareri e-mail:

Comments:

Here is my black cone 6 ox formula. This glaze is more satin than
matt, however, additions of epk should give you what you want. The
expansion number for this glaze is very low, but I think there is
more chance of crazing than shivering. I don't know why but probably
the high iron content increases the co-e of expansion. To increase
matt 2-4 more parts of epk will probably do. I have tests using this
base that look like old-fashion chalk boards. submitted by: Fraser

Comments:

From George Bowes. Good for stains/oxides. Great for purples and pinks. % of
stain is important. Test. Apply 3 coats if brushing. To brush use CMC gum
solution. Cloudy if fired below cone 5. Very stable glaze, good to paint on top
of w/ stains & colorants. Crystalline surface is not good for food contact.
Variations --
Use 50 frit 50 stain to decorate on top of raw glaze like majolica. To use this,
use half water, half thick CMC gum solution for better brushing.

Comments:

(the club's standard oatmeal was too runny - my variation sits better
and is a good base glaze. Surface waxy where thinnish, to glossy if
thick. Underglaze painting shows through with softened edges. The
titanium makes it reactive when over-dipped with some other glazes,
and you may get areas of aventurine.) Here are a couple of standards
from the Richmond Potters Club, and a few of my own formulation that
have worked well in ^6 oxidation. They aren't revolutionary (my
exciting ones have things like barium in them, or are less
predictable for a classroom situation) but they have been reliable,
and allow for some play. They all calculate out to well within the
INSIGHT limit formulas for maturity at ^6. If anyone tests these and
comes up with problems, new ideas, good variations etc. could they
let me know? I'll look forward to a larger list being posted to
clayart. Veronica Shelford e-mail: [email protected] s-mail: P.O.

Finely Textured Satin matt - Do not apply too thick as it will
bubble. I substituted Rutile for Titanium Dioxide because I didn't
have any and it worked fine. Just don't double dip unless glaze if
very thin. I liked how this worked over texture. They are dependable

Comments:

I got this glaze from Ceramics Monthly and when I tested it -- I
thought it was wonderful, but when I put it on a few larger pieces it
was awful!! I'm not quite ready to give up on it. Can someone look it
over and make suggestions about the portions of chemicals? On the
tests it was a semi-transparent matt. On the larger pieces it ended
up black and crusty and cratery. Yuck! Any help would be appreciated.
Waiting hopefully with my crusty pots. Sue sue hintz

C.M.C. 1 tsp I have been off-line for several days (art fair
a'comin') and upon retrieving my e-mail found several of you
interested in my recipe for a cone 6 clear glaze that worked well
(for me, anyway) over underglazes. (Sorry for the delay) It works
over the Amaco Reward Velvet Underglazes, including reds, purples,
etc. I will post the original recipe and then add my revisions. OK.
The above glaze crazed on my A.R.T. #135 porcelain at cone 6. Being
absolutely non-technical, I stumbled in to the following
substitution: I substituted calcined kaolin (comercial name Glomax,
from A.R.T.) for the EPK. I also substituted Amorphous Silica for the
Flint. I don't use C.M.C. I do add Flocs...it settles out. It is
glossy and very clear. My samples from two/three years ago still look
good, no delayed crazing. I don't use it on anything, because I found
a whole palette of glazes while I was looking for a good clear, and
have lost interest in underglaze decorating. The pursuit was
interesting, though ;-) I found the Pemco Frit 626 through Trinity
supply in Texas. I do not know about substitutes. submitted by:

for green, add 6 gr rutile + 2 gr Cobalt Carbonate + 1 gr bentonite ,
for blue add .5% Cobalt Carbonate AT cone 4-5 these glazes are a
wonderful matt; higher they turn 'glossy'. I especially did not like
the green at this temperature - too hard and glassy looking. These
recipes came from Capilano College in North Vancouver (Canada) where
I took a glaze course. submitted by: Penny Anagnostopoulos e-mail:

Comments:

Due to the lower sintering point of ^6 glazes- you have to start reduction fairly
early- at least by stoneware standards. Try ^010 as a starting point & go from
there. I also used a clay body that had a higher iron content than my present ^10
body- it seemed to make a difference. submitted by: Tom Gray [email protected]

Apply very thinly to get almost salt-glazed look in reduction.- Rick Malmgren.

Simple. It works. Can't be too thick. I've used OM-4, but would try
Sagger xx, as the current notion seems to be that it has fewer
problems. This slip will work on bisque, though needs to be thinner.
The originator, Rob Forbes, applied the stuff with a three inch paint
brush in thick swabs. He fired to cone 5. It is currently being used
at cone 10. Enjoy - HP submitted by: Henry Pope e-mail:

Comments:

I have been using a slip recipe that I got form HANDS IN CLAY for
quite awhile. It works wonderfully..I mix up a 5 gallon pail of it,
then put smaller amounts in jars and add mason stains to different
jars to get the colors i want - I really don't measure, just add
enough by sight until it looks right. One of those small sample
packets (1/4 ounce?) usually does great in a cottage cheese container
filled with the white slip. Then I brush the slip on green pots, let
it dry overnight if it's humid summer in northern Wisconsin, or cover
with plastic overnight if the woodstove is on...the waiting makes the
carving through the slip give a nicer line I feel. Once my drawings
are done, I bisque, then cover with a clear glaze and fire to cone 7
or 8. the nice thing about this slip recipe is that it is good for
cones 6-11, and it's true because I've used it in my electric kiln at
6 and my wood kiln at 12! Joan Slack-DeBrock/River Run Pottery

Comments:

I've applied them to bone dry sculptural work, bisqued them and then
have rubbed stains or oxides into the recesses, sponging off, then
fired again for permanence. They are quite versatile. These recipes
are from Zakin's book on Electric Kiln Ceramics. Some of the clays
used in the recipe are coarse and the slip should not be strined. The
result will be a coarse, sandy-textured surface, not for functional
pieces. They may be applied by dipping, spraying or brushing. They
may be applied to greenware or bisqued ware. They may be used alone
or with stains and glazes. The appearance when fired is soft and
sandy. Candice Roeder

RE: the latest info on Clayart regarding DeGussa Stain (i.e. cadmium)
toxicity - I did not receive any such information when I bought the
stain either. I believed it was safe because it is ENCAPSULATED. I am

Comments:

For 2 years I struggled with this concept & finally gave up. The fuel
savings (?) were not worth the effort. The results don't compare to
^10. I agree with Peter Pinnell- sell another mug to pay for the
difference in firing costs. Add .75 cobalt carb. for blue. This matte
glaze breaks from rust to white (to blue w/ cob.) * I used chemical
grade at the time- now I would probably test spod.LM. OR- replace
spod. w/ soda feldspar & add redart for color Due to the lower
sintering point of ^6 glazes- you have to start reduction fairly
early- at least by stoneware standards. Try ^010 as a starting point
& go from there. I also used a clay body that had a higher iron
content than my present ^10 body- it seemed to make a difference.

Comments:

Here are a couple of C 6 glazes that I use with my speckled
brownstone in ox. I used zircopax. A very fine, strong, white glaze
with a soft sheen. Opaque. I love the white color of this glaze.
Since it turns to cement when it sits, I have started adding
bentonite, which helps. It works well with other glazes that have
color. submitted by: Jan Henkel e-mail: [email protected] source

Apply a fluid glaze over your base glaze - but only on the rim -
maybe 1/2 to 1 down. I'm sending two recipes for such a fluid glaze
for you to try. I have just received these recipes and haven't yet
tested them. Remember they may react differently depending on your
base glaze, firing and all the other variables. An ash glaze will
often have the same effect - I'm testing one now. submitted by: Geri

Comments:

See more info at http://www.johnpost.us/. Must have adequately thick application
and slow cooling for iron crystals to form.
From article by Pete Pinnell in Clay Times. May/Jn
2009, p.21.Less shiny than Tomato Red Pete's #3. Calls for Spanish RIO, but Pete
says it doesn't much matter.
Variations --
8% less red. 12% is a more broken-looking orange. 14% goes to a duller brown.
Variation: +2% lithium carb + 10-12% RIO, bright iron rust spangles.
Variation: add 2% rutile to the red version to get pumpkin orange.

Comments:

originally suggested 7-10% copper carbonate. a deep green translucent
that I like over white glazes, for a mottled, opaque effect. Also
nice layered with cobalt blue glazes. I have found that many cone 10
glazes will at least do something interesting at cone 6. Try it!

blue to be found. GREAT semi mat clear, left underglazes true to

Comments:

We call them Brilliant Matt Purple and Brilliant Matt Turquoise. They are volatile
so be very careful with your kiln shelves. As you can see they both use the same
ingredients, but in different proportions.  He fires to cone 6 (1200/1220 C)You
have to watch your application thickness to get the result you want. We have fired
the BMP from 950 C to almost 1300 C with different results but always pleasantly
surprised. Do not expect consistancy with these glazes. submitted by: Ralph

Comments:

The other day a matt turquoise glaze was posted on Clayart. I am
suggesting that midfire potters not use this Maryland glaze for food
containers. It doesn't have enough silica to keep the copper properly
bound when faced with food acids. Adapting the same Seger formula,
this recipe is more balanced. Only tests will show if these yield an
acceptable colour and surface on your claybody. submitted by: Tom

Comments:

I added .2% Epsom Salts to this to improve raw glaze suspension. This
glaze produced a misty affect, which I believe Eleanora Eden(?) was
after some time ago. It was applied to Miller #15 Cone 6 Porcelain
bisque. I fired to Cone 6 using an Orton Cone 7 centered in kiln
sitter with no Guard Cones. The glaze was much as described by V.C.
The semi-opacity produces a misty appearance over underglaze. The
underglaze I used in the test was Duncan C154, Cobalt Navy Blue.
After painting the UG onto the bisque, I re-fired to Cone 06. The
glaze was applied over this in 1 & 2 coats by dipping, then fired to
Cone 6. The underglaze showed through 1 or 2 coats with a better
contrast under 2 coats. Lettering painted in underglaze onto the
bisque showed through the glaze quite clearly. However, carving into
the porcelain (also stoneware) clay surface was completely or
partially obliterated under this glaze. If you carve designs onto a
pot which will be covered by this glaze, you'll need to take measures
not to let the carved marks be blocked back out. (Remove or prevent
the glaze from covering areas where you want the carving to show.)
Wax resist is harder to work with for this glaze, so I'd consider
scratching or scraping off unwanted glaze. Fired to maturity, the
glaze didn't run back into letters created by scratching into the raw
glaze. In fact, where the scratched-in letters appeared over the dk.
blue UG, they showed up very clearly, retaining a crisp edge. They
stood out better against 2 coats (rather than 1) of glaze. This looks
promising as a handy way to work with lettering or linear design. I
got delayed crazing from this glaze over the Miller #15. None in
evidence yet over Miller #55, which is a buff-white. stoneware, Cone
6-9 (this clay body doesn't perform well in microwave ovens). There
also was some slight cratering of the glaze on Miller #15 where
applied thickly. When 2 light coats of this glaze were poured over 2
light coats of Spinach Green, it was transmuted into an attractive
semi-matt, waxy Lettuce Green (voila- a vitreous tossed salad. Come
to think of it, I had one of those at Red Lobster not too long ago.
There was lots of sand in it.). The base for Spinach Green,
originally a Richard Behrens glaze, has been used by Peter King (see
CM 12/85, p.36). It has a wide Cone range, incl. Spinach Green

Comments:

kiln type: electric Cone 9 and 6, clay: Plainsman M460 and H430,
electric fire, applied to bisque. ALberta slip: At cone 9 Alberta by
itself it makes a rich chocolate brown. It's too refractory to work
at cone 6 by itself, I was told, so I didn't test it.I added 30%
Gerstley borate which was the wrong thing to do, as Alberta is very
glassy to begin with, but I had intended to test at cone 6 as well so
I tested for both 6 and 9. I didn't really like the result at cone 6
with the gerstley, as it was a frosty transparent olive green (at
cone 9 it was a RUNNY transparent olive green. Adding Manganese or
cobalt to the Alberta slip would probably give a really nice black.
What I left out in making this one was Gerstley 10 (Rob uses
Colemanite), but what I ended up with was a stony black with very
tiny brown specks. Tends to crawl if too thick. Rob's recipe was
great too, and that one SHOULD be thick, he says. His recipe also
works on greenware, he said, but I haven't tried it yet. submitted

As a result of seeing, Reading and being fascinated By Carleton Ball book, I fall
in love with the waxy glazes. I had one before but never used it correctly. I tested
 a glaze was posted y John Post in 19997: A decorative glaze: WAXY WHITE^6 TO ^10
 The result:
The glaze looks to me like the glazes (as they look in the book and the net of
Japanese tea bowls) some decorative pinholes not fully mature, but enough to make
it a wonderful glaze please see it in:

texture - sea shell kind of texture with pattern when reflected by
light. with 5% zircopax, white. add colorants like mason stain or
whatever oxide you want to create what color you want. when you fired
this, you can apply it thick. submitted by: yee vian shin aka Frankie

Comments:

I'm not taking responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc.
Something is probably toxic. They are examples of my research and
they work out in formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So
go formulate your own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's
probably bad for the environment too. Email me with questions as to
household performance, as that may be indicative of other problems.
The badly crazed surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non
porous sanitary surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas

For Pat Chesney- I use a gloss white glaze that it supposed to mature
at cone 4 -8. I fire it to 6-7, so I haven't personally tested it at

Comments:

An interesting combination of army green/dark blue. The recipe was
given to me by a friend and is called White Opaque. She said to add
2.5% cobalt for a great shiny dark blue. or LEAVE OUT THE RUTILE FOR
A SHINY DARK BLUE The only thing she forgot to tell me was to leave
out the rutile. I now know that Rutile makes cobalt go green as the
result was a glaze that went a dingy army green on my light clay
(Standard 112), but on the Standard 266 dark brown it was dark blue
in the background with a diffuse green overcast, almost like a tiny
green crystal pattern, very attractive. submitted by: Julia Moore

Comments:

I've applied them to bone dry sculptural work, bisqued them and then
have rubbed stains or oxides into the recesses, sponging off, then
fired again for permanence. They are quite versatile. These recipes
are from Zakin's book on Electric Kiln Ceramics. Some of the clays
used in the recipe are coarse and the slip should not be strined. The
result will be a coarse, sandy-textured surface, not for functional
pieces. They may be applied by dipping, spraying or brushing. They
may be applied to greenware or bisqued ware. They may be used alone
or with stains and glazes. The appearance when fired is soft and
sandy. Candice Roeder

Comments:

This is a studio glaze at u of m. I think it could be improved upon. It
crawls a little when applied very thick,- its name is SUPER WHITE. i was just in
the process of looking for other glazes to test, so let me know if you
have any, thanks submitted by: Ed Brownlee e-mail: [email protected]

comments: hi. I have a recipe for a fake wood ash at cone 6
oxidation. It  does run in those rivulets. I added 3% copper
carbonate but I am sure some other colorants would be worth a try.

Comments:

comments: Seems to be better on
porcelain. Some- times bright yellow, sometimes browner depends on
mineral content of the ash which varies from wood to wood. Darker and
more opaque where thin goes to almost black. Yellow where thicker.
Keep glaze thin or you will be scraping shelves. Becomes transparent
yellowish brown and very fluid when thickly applied. The mid way
thin/thick of application is mottled like a salt fired piece and is
satin matte. But I got great reds, yellows, browns, blacks on pieces
where it's thinner. To make tiny rivers of ash I make the same glaze
substituting Red Art for the Ochre and trail it on with a slip trail
bulb. Caution: use rubber gloves with unwashed ash glazes or face the
possibility of contact dermatitis. It will mildly burn the skin. I
keep Cornhuskers lotion and Hydrocortisone cream around the house
anyway. I layer it with a glossy, glassy glaze that by itself has its
own problems like keeping me up at night to the sound of loudly
cooling and crazing *pings* I use a glaze with wood ash. I don't wash
the ash, but I do screen it. The woodash has to be soft, white,
fluffy. Not from a wood kiln! That kind is sintered and won't get the
best results. You can tell it will feel crispy at first. I'm not
taking responsibility for anyone using these glazes, etc. Something
is probably toxic. They are examples of my research and they work out
in formulation. Which is what they are examples of. So go formulate
your own non-toxic glazes, if that is possible. It's probably bad for
the environment too. Email me with questions as to household
performance, as that may be indicative of other problems. The badly
crazed surfaces are not considered to be a continous-non porous
sanitary surfaces. Eric Hansen, Lawrence, Kansas
