Snowflakes and Sand Dollars

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.
