Breathe …is there anything more important?

Turquoise

My friend Joel gave me a very nice glaze formula for a greenish blueish glaze. It is a very stable glaze: doesn't run, pit, bubble. I decided I wanted to see what it would look like if it were a bit more blue. Pictured below is the result. I layered with a cobalt blue glaze over the turquoise to give it a bit more texture. Pictured here it is cradled around a couple of squared-off red bowls. They remind me of a simple mandala.

  1. Really lovely, is it cone 6? Would love to have the recipe.

  2. Jan,

    Thanks.

    I don’t remember if I told you that Joel and I are friends from college, way back when. He credits me with taking him to the ceramics studio at UCSB and introducing him to clay. Now he teaches ceramics at Santa Rosa Junior College. Funny how things work out.

    Unfortunately for us, this is a cone 10 reduction glaze, however, my goal is to develop something similar for cone 6.
