Javelina Jar

New from the kiln is this small javelina jar. I have been working on developing new glazes for my gas kiln and this turquoise is a winner. I added a little cobalt carbonate to a glaze containing green chrome oxide and this is the result. The great thing about this glaze is that it likes to be fired HOT!  The bottom of my kiln fires a little hotter than the rest of the kiln and I did not have any glazes that really took advantage of that extra heat. But this glaze loves to go to cone 11 or 12 so now I know what color pots are going on that bottom shelf.

  1. John, I have had a couple stoneware mugs with JPost under them for probably 15 or 20 years. They are my favorite go-to mugs. Not sure if these are yours though. I probably got them from an art show in the Midwest. I'd love to get a couple more with your new glazes... If they are yours and you are interested. Hope you're enjoying retirement! I've always wanted to go to Sedona.
