Glaze Tests: Round II

I’m doing another round of testing, except this time on a new clay body. The translucent porcelain I’ve used before was a really nice clay, a little short, but most of my glaze tests crazed. I found out how to doctor a glaze to prevent crazing but I’d like to try another clay body, which is called vitreous porcelain. I’m using some new glazes and some old ones. It will be interesting to see how they turn out on this new clay body. Stay tuned.

    In hind site, the translucent clay is beautiful on it’s own, but it definitely has issues when used with a glaze. Thanks for trying it with me!
