more shino this time...

















this is my only issue with glaze overlapping a bit it's the shino and the dark celedon, they just don't get on!!..there's bubbling or a coarseness everytime....have no clue why it does this....other than that about half a dozen bowls with this issue, the rest of the kiln load is great, some lovely carbon trapping, most of the refire were successful - oh and the 'elusive purple' stood up to it's name...can i say really happy ang..! and i hope there's something here you can enjoy...cheers all..

  3. Really scrumptious work Ang, you'll be really happy. I was interested with the glaze overlapping problem as I have had that too with shinos, but only where the shino was over the other glaze. One glaze test I did once blew two enormous connected bubbles when shino was over a tenmoko.. looked, dare I say it, just like a Dolly Parton bra (bless her)! Anyway, moving along, Teapot on the post before is terrific.

  4. hey peter, well that's helpful in the shino quest i was thinking if the green went over the outside rim a good amount i could just do the shino really close but not touching.. although that may cause the bowls to be cut a little strangely??HA...funny, thanks it's a couple of teapots refired with the green over a dud glaze, can't remember what it was but it looks kinda ashy now..

  5. Lovely pots.

    I recently heard the phrase "Shino doesn't like underpants" and that helps me remember!

  7. Shino will tolerate some glazes on top of it, but very few underneath of it. Hence, no underpants!

    Hmmm..."Commando Shino", short & rhymingly sweet!
