Shale + Ash

@son_of_a_bisque gives a perfect example of how to develop a glaze from local materials. In this case we have shale, and wood ash. After this initial line blend test, I might run another line blend to zoom in on whichever glaze suited me best. (Personally think something like 60 Shale:40 Ash would probably be killer!)

My name is Matt and I'm a potter living in Southeast Alaska. I've been an artist/teacher/potter for the past decade, and I got my start in ceramics in high school some 18 years ago. These days I make my living selling wheel thrown pottery that sits at the intersection of ceramics/science/mineralogy/and geology.
