Just finished sgrafitto designs on these cups and small vase. Tomorrow I’ll do the bowl and baking dish I still have under wraps at the studio. With all the rain we have had, the biggest challenge is getting stuff to dry enough to fire!
I tried a new glaze…at least new for me…called Nutmeg on one of my little dip trays. I really like the way it breaks over the textures. What do you all think? Now I have to try it on some larger, more vertical pieces to see how much it runs, and then do tests of it win combination with my other glazes. The recipe came from the February 2003 issue of Ceramics Montly: Dolomite 23.3%, Spodumene 23.3%, Frit 3134 6.8%, Kentucky Ball Clay (OM4) 23.3%, Flint 23.3%. Then add Red iron oxide 1.07%, Yellow ochre 3.24 %, tin oxide 4.85% and Bentonite 1.94%. I fire to cone 6 oxidation.
