c & j,

I've completed one bisque load and in the process of loading and throwing for another bisque in the next few days. With that complete, I will be back on a glazing cycle. I expect I'll be firing a glaze kiln in about two weeks...If other more pressing events don't come my way, that is. The likelihood that there will be "reds" in this glaze firing is very good....thanks for asking j.

Michael

Ponderosa Pine Ash
Copper Carb.

The red is from the reduced Copper

Looks like another show piece, no?

If there's a similar "red" in this next firing (if you know what I mean - similar to the one I drooled over previously wink wink - :wink: ) - I call 1st dibs!!! :D

Love the "red umbilicus chawan". Totally cool how you name your chawan. :)

Peace!

C,

Not a lot of new celadons as of late, but the image below is one I like a lot. Lots of crazing. This finish will develop a nice patina overtime.

The following chawan is glazed with a tenmoku (10% iron oxide) and then over glazed with a celadon (2% iron oxide) effectively resulting in an Amber Celadon. This can also be achieved by taking the base celadon glaze and adding an additional 4% red iron oxide. In the image below the two glazes melted together and averaged their iron content to approx. 6% RIO.

Glaze chemistry is really quite fascinating.

Sorry, they all sold this weekend through eBay and our gallery, SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts, here in Pagosa Springs, CO.

We are having a very busy summer.

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate it...there will be many more to come soon.
