Red Lodge Glazes

The amazing @redlodgeclaycenter has generously allowed me to share their studio glazes on Glazy. https://glazy.org/u/rlcc/recipes Studio glazes often reflect the history of a studio.  They are brought in by a succession of studio technicians from their schools or places of previous employment, and the recipes go through a process of “natural selection”. Those that are unreliable are gradually… Continue reading Red Lodge Glazes

More Tests

More tests for #theglazyproject  It’s a gamble! The Glazy Project is an effort to document hundreds of old recipes in Glazy that have no record of being tested. The old recipes in Glazy were, at some point in time, used by a potter and carefully recorded to share with others.  We should give these recipes the benefit of the… Continue reading More Tests

In particular, ceramics recipes are handed down from one generation of ceramicists to another, much… Continue reading Glazy
