Lisa Orr Glaze Recipes




These are some images of Lisa Orr's pieces I found on the web. The recipes are from an article by Rafael Molina-Rodriguez entitled "A Dialogue with Lisa Orr", Ceramics Monthly May 2000,  page 48 -51. She was featured on the cover.

Lisa Orr Clear Base Glaze 1 (cone 03)
66.00 Frit 3110
  4.00 Silica
  5.00 EPK
  9.00 Gerstley Borate
16.00 Soda Ash

(This base gives better color variations but Base 2 is more stable.)

Color variations are possible with additions such as:
Honey yellow: 11% Spanish Red Iron
Turquoise: 6% copper Carbonate
Soft Blue: 0.50% Cobalt Carbonate
Purple: 5% Manganese Silicate (When using this delete the silica in the base.)
Green: 0.25% Chrome Oxide; 6% Copper carbonate; 11% Red Iron Oxide

Dear, Mr, Britt, what do you refer
to when using the word stable, regarding Lisa's glaze recipes.i.e., Runny? glaze fit?

It doesn't run as much (15% EPK).
