Ron Roy has asked me to test some fake ash glazes to see if he can develop a fake ash that does not have pinholes or any bubbles. If any one would like to test these and get back to the group with…Continue
Randy - Lakeside Pottery uses each new glaze for three years at their studio only, after which they publish the recipe for others to us. I've found them helpful.
Lakeside Pottery - Antique White
Marina Reijsmeijer and myself are listed as "owners", more properly "curators", of hundreds of glazes merely because we spent a lot of hours over several weeks correcting spelling errors in glazes uploaded from the Sankey Datatbase and other sources. But Antique White is not currently in the Insight-Live database.
White Bird is in the Insight-Live database is likely the closest match to Antique White.
I've revised it with an extra 10% Ferro Frit 3269 to use with our slow-cooling schedule
Hi Randy. I am trying to order the Special Red from uS Pigment but there is nothing there with that particular name. I asked for it by this name and they put in Fe203-HP. I have tried Spanish RIO, synthetic and regular RIO. When I first started using your recipe I got a beautiful red - now it is muddy brown as others have noted. I read something about Texas talc making the glaze brown... Thanks for your input.
I use the recipe from the Richard Busch article "A Wood Fired Look" that is reproduced online at Ceramic Arts Daily.
Dolomite 23.3 %
Ferro Frit 3134 6.8
Kentucky OM 4 Ball Clay . 23.3
Add: Red Iron Oxide . 1.1 %
Yellow Ocher 3.2 %
Tin Oxide 4.8 %
Bentonite . 2.0 %
I love the way it works for me as a base glaze, and it's OK as a semi-matte liner. I just mixed up an 8000 gram batch, so I will be using it for a while.
What is it about my pots, that makes you say I should be using something different?
