The first friday of every month this year, I will be posting a low fire glaze/slip recipe, commercial glaze review, or other low fire related technique/product. Some of the recipes will be my favorite standbys; some from other potters/ceramicists. I've got an exiting line up of select Guest Artists willing to share their secrets so stay tuned in the months ahead!
Hope you enjoy this new little feature. And without further delay, here's the first recipe...
(My Favorite) Crawl Glaze
This is by far my favorite Crawl Glaze. It is very reliable, but the trick is that is has to be applied THICK! And by thick, I mean super, super, think. Think cake icing application, not typical pot glazing. The thicker the application, the more it will crawl.
