Same glaze, different conditions

Today I thought I’d show the versatility of one of my favorite glazes. Glazes respond so differently depending on where they’re applied and how they’re fired. These three pieces show the same glaze on different clay bodies and kiln processes.
Left: dark brown clay, electric kiln
Middle: standard brown clay, gas kiln (reduction firing)
Right: buff clay, electric kiln

This glaze just loves textures, so I love this glaze.


Wow…so you get a big surprise when the firing is done! And nice ones no matter what! I really love the one on the far right…it looks so natural and earthy… beautiful work!

So pretty! I love the way the glaze brings out the different textures

This is such a great exercise! And the electric kiln is dreammmmmyyyyyy!
