Vertical Testing of the Cone 6 Oribe Green

Vertical testing of a cone 6 translucent Oribe Green over a Willies Slip. The slip has been stenciled onto a blue Amco underglaze that was brushed on while leather hard and a black underglaze was used to outline the paper stencils before they were pulled off.



The interior is finished off using a standard white liner that plays well with the Oribe green, letting it waterfall at the lip.


I was surprised at how opaque the surface came out of the kiln and I'm wondering if it's due to the slip used or firing to cone 5 rather than 6.

More testing... always more testing.

I've hyperlinked to all the glaze recipes from my back posts.

V. nice .... altho' opaque, I do like how the underlying patterns show thru.

The final result is not what I would have expected from seeing the unfired work. BUT I really like the subtlety of the fired pots.

It was a surprise, because it wasn't what I originally was expecting, but now after living around it and seeing it out of the corner of my eye, I think I really love it. Now to see if it's as repeatable as it should be.

I prefer semi opaque glazes for simple patterned surfaces. It helps created an object that needs to be puzzled out. I feel that holding a work should have hidden rewards.

Thanks!
