Profile Information

What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
I got involved in ceramics about seven years ago when I was laid off from a job. I was instantly hooked.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I create vases inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. Most recently, I've been experimenting with cone 6 zinc crystalline glazes. I'm inspired by the work of Adelaide Alsop Robineau.

Thanks Jacquie.  Commercial glazes can be cost prohibitive. I combine red iron oxide with a small amount of black oxide (for a dark brown color) and add it to a Amaco wax resist.  I mix small amounts because it tends to gel; I sometimes add a bit of water and/or brushing medium to help with the flow.  I've yet to get a perfect mix, but for now this works for me.  I have also used regular wax resist with the oxides and that works pretty well too, and is inexpensive.
