Glaze Trials

The glaze color trial sessions have begun. Only four more base recipes to go and then a few special mixes that I’ve been waiting impatiently to try. So about 100 more tests. I’m going to need more test tiles…

Some pie plates or large platters that I hope will make it through to the bisque firing. The humidity in the studio is different than in summer so I’ve had some issues with pieces drying too much or not enough and handles falling off. I’ve made some damp boxes but none big enough for these platters. They are probably 14″ across now and will shrink quite a bit upon firing.
