Clay: Glaze pain

Ok, you see the lovely crackle-y green towards the bottom of this piece?  That’s green Celadon.  That is the color I was going for.

Not red.  There must have been a contamination in the glaze.  So this piece that goes with my Heart Condition series ended up being the most red of all my hearts.  Interesting.  But not what I expected.

I leave the insides of the boxes rough on purpose.  I think it looks somewhat like muscle tone that way.

These clay vessels also received the same glaze with the same results.  They were supposed to be the pale green with a darker green spotted glaze in some areas.

 

 

 

 

 That is one of the beauties and annoyances of glazing–you can’t control the results!
