mystery glaze...

(teapot by Gary Rith)
At the Cornell studios there is a huge rinse bucket. You mix your glaze up, clean your mixer and brushes in the rinse bucket, and there is a huge quantity of muck at the bottom--the leftovers of ten different glazes. Somebody stirred up and sieved that muck and this glaze is the result, and everybody is racing to use it, 'cause it looks so SHARP. makes me want to mix all 15 of my glazes together at home and see what happens!
Big day today. Gotta get more java and dig these guys:

Wow that muck glaze is awsome!!! Glazes amaze me, they always turn out so differently than expected, well for me they do, haha I still have a lot to learn about them.

That is a wonderful glaze, Gary. I do like the teapot.

That mucky glaze looks like a glaze that Ben has out at the Tuscarora Pottery school in Nevada. I can't remember the name of it, but it fires to cone 10. It's either Abelone (sp?) or Oribe... I think it's the first one. :)

Sort of the Heinz 57 Glaze! It's lovely, almost jewel like.
