Recreating Ancient Glazes using Glazy’s “Target & Solve” feature with analyses from Nigel Wood’s “Chinese Glazes”.
In an earlier post I showed how you can quickly make a recipe from an analysis of an ancient glaze. Here are four examples of recipes I tested using this technique.
1. #121102 Koryo celadon glaze 3. This came out BEAUTIFUL on stoneware and would probably look great on a “dirty” porcelain as well.
2. #121119 Hangzhou Guan 1. OK result. I used Glomax to replace some of the Grolleg, but that also added titania. I think if I’d used calcined Grolleg (or some other low-titania kaolin) the color would have been nicer.
3. #121106 Yingqing Glaze. Another great result. I really like the look of this on both porcelain and stoneware. On porcelain it definitely has the feel of Yingqing.
4. #121122 Ru ware glaze 2. Ru ware is typically made of stoneware, and I almost like the look of my stoneware test. This has potential, but more testing is needed!
Again, please see my earlier post, “Re-create a Song Dynasty glaze in one minute”, to see how these recipes were created.
