A triaxial blend is an excellent tool for learning about glazes and materials but if you're new to glaze testing, just the words "triaxial blend" might give you pause.
Never fear! John Britt is here to demystify the triaxial blend in today's video post. In this clip, excerpted from Understanding Glazes: How to Test, Tweak, & Perfect Your Glazes, John clearly explains how a triaxial blend is set up and shows a fired example of a triaxial blend with stains, which nails the point home. - Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
