Oh heavens! Where to begin… Six bags ( note that logo!) each one filled with 10 – 12 pint jars. Each jar an undiscovered palette of glaze! My friend Marsha, of Marsha Neal Studios was doing a little summer cleaning, and moving her glaze studio… ( read about it here) She generously gave me glazes – colors she tested and didnt need, colors she was phasing out… WOW! These are ^6 glazes, so there is a different depth and subtle variety to the color – as compared to lower temp glazes. I am headed to the studio this morning to start cutting out sample tiles for color tests! Woo Hoo!
Yes – I will post pix here, but it will be a week or so… Drying, firing, glazing, categorizing, firing… Keep you posted.

    I’m so thrilled that you were able to take those glazes and that you are going to use them! Watch out for those red/orange and some purple ones with the putrid glaze stench…

    Can’t wait to see the tests on your clay body!
