It’s still a bit of shock when these glazes work as well as they do. We developed them ourselves with a lot of trial and error over the past few years and I keep expecting them to start misbehaving.
I’ve had a few people ask for glaze recipes over the past few weeks and I’m never sure the best way of answering. These took a lot of research to perfect and I’m a little loath to share them after only just getting them to work. On the other hand all of my pottery knowledge has been gained because other people were willing to share their research over the years. At the moment I’m happy to share my approach and once I’ve had a few years of use out of the glazes I’ll probably publish the precise recipes.
All of the glazes I use stem from one base glaze. It’s a variation on Lucie Rie’s matte white glaze which can be found online. I then add increasing amounts of a stain and some black iron oxide to create the various shades. For the warmer grey we add a tiny amount of rutile and more iron than the other glazes.
I hope that helps and happy exploring.
