Good Morning

   I am useing .7 % of Silican Carbide in my Copper Reds & Oribe glazes. I have good luck in the Oribe and starting to have good luck in my Copper Reds. In the Copper Reds I have pin holes from the Silican Carbide, but I am getting Ox Bloods. It has been a process but I am getting red. I think it will be a learning process for you, I would make a bunch of test with differing percentages of Silican Carbide, and I put a small percentage of Iron Ox. in the glaze with the Tin Ox.

                                                            Good luck...

Hello, I like the looks of your stuff... The Tea pot is a oribe glaze, I reduce it in a electric kiln with an addition of silican carbide in the glaze.

Welcome, Cheng Su Wen.

I am embarrassed to say I don't know how to address you in a proper, but informal manner. In the U.S. we usually address each other very informally by our first name, so I am George. I believe you are our first member from Malaysia.  I hope we can be of help to you with your pottery.
