Glazes at the studioSt

This is a picture of test tiles made by Kris Brown at the studio. He was kind enough to go through all the buckets and mix up all the glazes and dip our little test pieces. Below is a list going by columns starting at the top left and finishing at the bottom right.

Butter, Lime, Spearamint, Celadon, Emma’s Green
Field mouse brown, 10% iron, Israeli Brown, emma’s brown
Crimson, shino, oatmeal
Majolica, slate blue, floating blue, volcanic ash, Klaudia’s celadon
Ketchup, waterfall, pete’s bronze, licorice, and what looks like clear with rutile on top.

The batches of glazes for the 10% and the filed mouse brown are crawly. These batches are really old and have been sitting around for a year or more since they are use sparingly as accents rather than as a base. I think what happened with the glazes is that some of the soluble parts of the materials, well they finally merged into the water instead of staying in suspension.

We are going to replace a bunch of these glazes with new ones, and I can’t wait to see the combinations!
