Glazing in Prussian

This weekend turned out to be a rather productive one in the studio.  I am happy to say that I have officially completed my commissions, so I am ready for baby to come!  I unloaded the kiln this weekend and was able to cut off all pedestals and grind down the bottoms of each pot for a smooth and finished look.  (Only had two pieces break, so that was pretty good!)  I will be posting about what fired in the kiln throughout the week, but I wanted to share with you a bowl that came out.  As I continue to experiment with new colorants in my glaze recipes, I am always excited when they turn out successfully.  This bowl was glazed in prussian crystalline.  The exciting element used in this glaze is Nickel.  Nickel is what helps give you turquoise crystals against a warm amber background.  I really love the contrasting colors in this glaze and the way the amber tones turn a deep caramel color as it pools in the bottom of the bowl.  I have used this glaze several times before in this past year, but it is not one that I have been glazing with consistently.  Sometimes it doesn’t always come out the way I want it to.  I still have some fine-tuning to do with this one, but for now, here is the bowl in prussian crystalline.  You can find it available on my Etsy shop – click here.
