Successful experiments with dolomite glazes!

I'm really growing to love the tactile, satin-smooth surfaces that dolomite glazes produce. When used over other glaze recipes and textures, they can also create interesting rivulets, pinholes and craters. Here are a few pieces from the last couple of electric firings, which on the whole were very successful:

Large vase, height 9 inches
Vase, close up
Hand-pinched dish
Hand-pinched dish interior
Hand-pinched, oval dish, approx. 5 inches long
Bowl, height approx. 3.5 inches
Bowl, height approx. 3.5 inches
One-pint tankard
Bowl, approx 7 inches wide
Bottle vase, height approx. 6 inches
Small coffee cup
Hand-built vase, height approx 7 inches
Carved sake cup
Vase, height approx. 8.5 inches

I'll be bringing these and many other pieces to the Olive and Stitch, artisan fair at the Civic Centre, Alsager, Cheshire this Saturday, 19th of November and the 17th of December:

If you happen to live locally or are passing through the area, why not drop by and say hello?

Thanks for reading!


Never give up the best is yet to come
