Three vases with copper glazes

Picture of three porcelain vases decorated with green glazes

In the spring 2021, I threw these three porcelain vases and decorated them.

The first vase was thrown with paperclip porcelain and decorated using two glazes that I prepared using copper oxide. The bottom glaze is a recipe from Emmanuel Copper and the top one a mate glaze from Linda Bloomfield with an added copper oxide. They were applied using an atomiser and fired to 1,210 degree Celsius. I really like the darker glaze which is edging towards a metallic finish. You can find the glaze recipes on my page.

The two other vases were decorated using Mayco Peacock Matte and White Crackle raku glazes. They were fired at the raku workshop I reported in a previous post. I was really pleased with the richness of effects of the reduction on the copper in the peacock glaze.
