Emerald – Cone 5/6 ox –Kelly Moen

 

 

Emerald – Cone 5/6

Gerstley Borate – 49
EPK (kaolin) – 19
Flint (silica) – 32
Chrome oxide – 2

Cobalt Oxide – 1

Bentonite 2%
This glaze has to be applied much thicker
than you would expect a glaze to go on.
Almost like a thin yogourt. The mug in the illustration was fired to cone 5.
As you get hotter the green becomes more uniform and “greener” much like the area on the edges of the handle

    Hi Kelly,
    Great colour. What is the clay body of the mug. Is the speckling coming through from the clay or is it from the glaze.
    Thanks
    Gene
