This week we critiqued the rest of the classes Apologia pieces. Mine did not get critiqued because we had a tennis match and class was canceled one day. I need to buy Velcro so it can hang on the wall to be looked at and graded. I got a chance to work in the studio a bit and get my glaze calc. finished and ready to be fired. I still need to redo my line blend before the last firing day. I will probably be doing that next week during class or for my outside class hours. I messed up my line blend last time and did the total batch numbers instead of the numbers for just one batch.
For my line blend, I plan to get a glossy glaze that is a neutral color. I want to do a lot more neutral color glazes for some of my own pieces including the fantasy function piece. I picked out a white glaze (Cedar Hill) and I plan to use chrome oxide as my colorant for the base glaze. The glaze will be fired under a cone 6 kiln. It is semi-glossy and the transparency is opaque. The materials needed to make the glaze are Ravenscrag Slip, Frit 3134, and Zicropax.
