About GLAZES

NUKA:
An ash glaze that is high in silica. It produces colors from matte white to a glossy bluish purple.

COPPER RED: 
It produces colors from bright red to burgundy by using minuscule amounts of copper. It is one of the more tricky glazes in high fired ceramics.

ORIBE: 
It produces a greenish blue to a pinkish blush color. A unique glaze that contains ~ 5% copper.

TEA DUST TEMMOKU
An iron saturated glaze that produces a brown to black glaze with tiny green specks. It can also produce an olive green if thickly applied.

ASH GLAZE:
 A simple glaze made of only wood ash and clay. This glaze is one of the oldest glazes known. It is this glaze that gives my pottery its drippy/fluid effect.

Other glazes are used; however, these are the glazes that are used the most. The glazes are greatly affected by the kiln atmosphere and where they are positioned during the firing.
