Here is a photo of one of my pots out of the firing.
Lucas Glazecone 10 soda firing
10 Custer Feldspar 25 Silica 25 Whiting 25 Ball Clay 15 Red Iron Oxide
It is on page 155 of my book.
I love this glaze because it is derived from the 25/25/25/25 base and they took out 15g. of the feldspar and substituted 15g. red iron oxide. The glaze has incredible variation because red iron oxide is a refractory in oxidation and a flux in reduction so the surface of the glaze goes from gloss to matt depending on the atmosphere.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at email@example.com for more info.
