New Glaze Recipe Database Makes it Easy to Organize Your Recipes!

Posted On October 1, 2014 0 Comments

I have to admit, I am somewhat organizationally challenged. It’s not that I don’t love being organized, it’s that sometimes I can’t keep up…yeah, that’s it. I’ll blame it on being busy!

 

This carries over into my studio way more than I would like. Again because of the limited time I get to spend there. I’d much rather make work than spend time organizing! So things aren’t set up in the most efficient way, glaze recipes and notes are scattered amongst various sketchbooks and scraps of paper. You get the picture.

 

So I am extremely excited by our latest development here at CAD – CeramicRecipes.org – not just because it is the beautiful result of lots of hard work by our team, but also because I am sincerely excited to use it! In addition to containing tons of glaze recipes that you can search in a number of intuitive ways, the site also has tools that will help you have organized access to your favorite glaze recipes wherever you are (it looks great on a phone!).

 

In today’s post, I thought I would share a couple of our video tours of CeramicRecipes.org to show how useful it really is. Plus I’m including a glaze recipe I found on the site that looks pretty cool! Enjoy, and I hope you find it helpful in your studio. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

Glaze That Glitters: A Little Experimentation Leads to Some Nice Low Fire Crystal Glazes

Posted On August 12, 2013 4 Comments

When Deanna Ranlett was in school, she wanted to find a glaze that looked like eye shadow. She liked the effects of some high-fire crystalline glazes, but could only fire low in the school studio. Undeterred, she started experimenting with Mark Burleson’s “Love Child” glaze. She tested and retested and came up with some sweet glaze recipes that gave her the eye-shadow look. In today’s post, she shares her recipes and some details on the experimentation that lead to them.

If you’ve seen anything I have made in the last several years, you know that I’m a little bit obsessed with pale-turquoise and pale-green glazes. I can’t get enough of them. So today, I thought I would share some samples of the glazes I obsess over. Linda Bloomfield explains the chemistry behind glazes ranging from the palest yellow-greens to some terrific teals. Plus she shares loads of recipes (for all firing ranges). There are many ways to get greens and blues in ceramics, but if you’re looking for a specific hue, this will help you find the right combination. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
