Have been collecting recipes over the last several years...will experiment with them in my retirement! Thank you for your kind words ! Have always been intrigued with water ,both in painting and in forms. Capturing waters movement seems to be my addiction at this point!

You certainly throw beautifully as witnessed by your pieces.

I used to mix my own..... Now I just love experimenting with combinations....working full time at a high school makes you pick and choose time usage. Using tried and true glazes works for me. My focus is more on manipulating forms....love to spend my time in experimenting with wheel throwing techniques instead.

Thank you for sharing!  This also just makes me want to touch it.  I was hoping the glazes were your own though.

Absolutely Nadine….I do spray all my glazes,except the interiors. Great lakes SpeckledBlue, Pearl Blue and Catalina Crackle. Sprayed at various angles to catch the subtle changes in form.

So beautiful!  The variations of the blue are stunning.  Looks like it was sprayed?  What is the glaze and would you please share it?
