A few pieces from a glaze fire last month.
All Amaco Warm Brown Stoneware. Wheel Thrown. Glaze fired to ^6 in oxidation.
Nothing groundbreaking here. I’m still getting some of the glazes calibrated. I think I have the Light and Dark Brown glazes at about the right application thickness for what I want. Which is a nice semi-matte look and feel.
You can really see the difference in application/glaze thickness in the “mugs” image. The left and center mug both have the same exact glaze! The mug in the middle (with tea bag pouch) was glazed during the first application after mixing the Light Brown glaze. It was too thick and is much more glossy and yellow looking, even green in some spots. It still looks “okay” but I was shooting for the mug on the left. This was glazed recently after the glaze was thinned with more water. There is also Bone White at the top. If you look close, you can tell which of the light brown pieces were glazed a while ago (when the glaze was too thick) and which were glazed recently.
The blue glazes still need a little work. I’d like them to be a little thicker even if they turn glossy. The Navy Blue gets thin in some spots and turns dark brown. Both can look patchy. I have some mugs from a while ago that I like better because the glaze is thicker and more even.
I used Waterfall Brown at the top of a lot of pieces in this load. It created some interesting effects on some pieces but not on others. It might be better if I apply it a little thicker as well.
Thanks for taking a look!
