Beautiful work Juli! You should post these in your images.

I have this at a small gallery where I live. The white pots glaze is "Donna's Matte white base", the green pitchers on the top are modified xavier over metallic green. Top shelf, maggie moo on teapot and mugs, and teapot has maggie moo over nutmeg, and some of the pitchers and teapot on the fourth shelf are maggie moo over nutmeg.  Second shelf is xavier over metallic green over nutmeg.  I could not have done this without your help, so thank you so much!!!!

I love the green on the pitchers.  Is that Xavier's warm Jade?  I have seen that elsewhere, but the potter did not have the  recipe, she was working out of a co-op with their glazes.  Are you willing to share?    It looks a lot like one I have called SEAFOAM , but the green is brighter, more grass color in what you have.  Beautiful.

Martha,

Sharing is how I got these recipes!!   To get that grass green, I layer two glazes, I sometimes do one over the other and vice versa.  The xavier, and metallic green.  recipes below.

Thank you.  I will mix and test soon.  I have been looking for a more true green for a while.


 Is the rutile dark or light?  I just recently learned that it can make a difference.

Martha,

Sorry, I have no clue.  I just order rutile.

Is yours the color of a brown paper grocery bag, or darker, with a more mocha, coffee with just a bit of cream   I have both and it does make a diff.

I can ,mix either way, just wondering .

Martha,
