This teabowl has beautiful copper red flashings all around the outside of the bowl. The inside was glazed with a Clear Crackle Glaze. The outside was first glazed with the Clear Crackle and then glazed again with a Turquoise Crackle.
I think the clear glaze I use is Called Soldner's Clear Crackle. 80% Gerstley Borate, 20% Neph. Sy.
For the Turquoise Crackle glaze I just added 10% Zircopax and 2% Copper Carbonate to the Soldner's Clear.
Took my first clay classes at Bemidji State University in 1989. In 2002, after a long break, I started more pottery classes at Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI.
I do not have one area of interest, but that isn't to say I am unfocused. I enjoy making everything from coffee mugs to trompe l' oeil. I work with highfire stoneware, and low fire earthenware. I'm just clay crazy.
