Cone 6 BoneMarrow Glaze

How's that for a name for a glaze combo, eh?

I don't know about all of you, but it still makes my head spin when I accidentally find out that my common studio glazes interact in a really unexpected ways... I've been living with these glazes for 2 years now, and I test for these things after all. But this glaze combo slipped through... until now.

This is my standard WhiteLiner over my Amber glaze.

I haven't made this combo jump through any hoops yet, but it seems to be acting like a cone 6 OilSpot glaze. Small Amber bubbles are floating through the WhiteLiner and healing over.


Happy Dance!

Oh WOW. That is so so nice. I want that last cup badly. I can't wait to see you throwing "Bone Marrow" into the mix.

"Bone Marrow" on the inside of a pirate jar...just thinking out loud. so many options its going to be fun for you.

This turned out wonderful. I get a similar effect with a white over tenmoku at cone 10. I like to trail the white over the tenmoku for an interesting contrast. Sorry I don't have a pic:(

this is amazing! is it fired reduction or oxidation. i'm new to ceramics and can never really tell.

FetishGhost said...

Technically it would be a considered neutral atmosphere. No reduction and no real oxidation either (I don't use a kiln vent and the peep holes are plugged so there really isn't any fresh air entering the kiln.)

I am 2 years late to the party but wondered if you used black slip under the glazes... it appears that way... doing some glaze testing and those 2 are first on my list by mine firing a cone 6 elec ox with slow cool...

Love your glazes! Are you using a reduction or oxidation kiln? I would love to be able to get an Amber to work like yours in an oxidation kiln.

I can't wait to try this!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Heather Feather said...

Hi there, I really want to make this glaze combination. For the white liner I don't have G200 and may not be able to get any because the mine shut down. Have you tried this glaze with a G200 substitute?
Thanks for the info!

FetishGhost said...

Hey Heather. to be honest, I haven't tried this recipe with a substitute. I'd be curios to see what the results were though.
