Ash Glaze

The same ash glaze as before but with about 15% red clay added to try and warm it up a bit.

and a nice Harvest jug.
with a phrase I made up on the spur of the moment.

Hollis Engley said...

Looks like you've got that ash glaze figured out, Paul. Care to share your recipe?

Ron said...

The ash glaze looks great there Mr Jessop. Well done.

Hi Hollis & Ron,

33% Lead Bisilicate
33% Ash
33% Borax Frit

I added about 15% red clay on top of this to give it some warmth.
I know that technically that changes all the above %'s but it's just easier this way.especially as I could use the original batch I made up.

Hollis Engley said...

Thanks, Paul. I love the look of it.

Peter said...

Thanks Paul for the recipe, like Hollis, I was also interested. Do you wash your wood ash, or is it just sieved? Are you firing to Cone 04 or there about? Nice jug too. P.

Peter I made a point of not washing it so thatit would keep as much natural flux in it as possible. and I fire it at 1095 oc with a 15 minuet soak. I had a guy come in the workshop last week who worked with Phil Rogers and he was impressed with the glaze at 1095oc.
High praise indeed.

Peter said...

Thanks for the extra information Paul, much appreciated. Great that you had the positive comment from the man that worked with Phil Rogers (it is a really nice glaze). I have a couple of Phil's books, and really love his work.
Best Wishes, P.
