Snowflakes or sand dollars? I see them both! I really wanted to showcase this glaze today because it has become a fast favorite of mine. This is the ivory crystalline glaze. This is the way it should look when the firing goes correctly. When I have been using this glaze lately, I have been getting lots of steel grays without crystals. It is not so attractive in the least! When the ivory crystals form over the steel-gray background, however, it really comes alive. Since my kiln is finally on the mends, (I will fill you in on that later) I am eager to fire up more in this ivory crystalline. One piece in particular I really want to glaze in this, is the Christmas platter. I think that will look really neat!
I love the way this glaze pools in a bowl to achieve those glassy amber tones. So rich! I can’t wait to see how it will look on the Christmas platter! I also love it on this teapot.
Both of these pieces are for sale. You can find them for sale on my etsy page later today.
