Gas Fired Shino Experiment

Just time for a quick post today. I just unloaded the kiln, and was pleasantly surprised by this Shino experiment. I’d had zero luck getting fire color in my shinos using a gas kiln, so I packed it in a saggar with charcoal and rice husks. What a difference. The glaze is very simple:
7 Neph Sye
3 Korean Kaolin

  1. Mike,

    I had better luck with 60/40 and 50/50 Korean Kaolin and Neph Sye.

    Go to the bottom of this page to see:

    The red on the surface is from alumina. The purple/brown is from iron underglaze decoration. It is on light mogusa clay, that is high alumina.
