Deep Blue Sea

Dynamic and Stormy

This glaze reminds me of the sea when you’re out of sight of land, Van Gogh’s starry night or the Milky Way on a very clear night.  This glaze comes alive in the heat of the kiln.  Believe it or not, when applied it’s a sort of rusty red colour!  But with temperatures of 1200 deg C the glaze melts and flows and develops wonderful layers of colour!  In places where it is applied thinly or runs away it turns a rich transparent brown.  Where a bit thicker, it goes deep vibrant blue or even black.  And where it is thickest or at the edge of drips, it develops clouds of white.  There really is an incredible depth to this glaze that shows off the flowy nature of the glaze.
