test 16

Yellow Salt
Cone 6 Oxidation

Nep Sye 73.6
Ball Clay 2.8
Dolomite 23.6
Zircopax 17.9
Yellow Iron 2.0
Bentonite 4.0

This is a pale yellow glaze. Needs to flux out a bit more. It is dry, but has great potential.

This glaze is one of 18 tests. Students of the fall 2009 semester tested in 100 g. batches, recalculated to assure glaze stability, then further tested 500 g. batches, and finally compiled a list of 18 glazes to go through a uniformed batch test. All batches of this 18 recipe set were mixed through a process of precise measurements, 60 and 80 mesh screening, were dipped on cone 04 bisque for 3 seconds, and were finally fired to a witnessed cone 6 oxidation in an electric kiln. (Firing schedules are to follow shortly).

  1. All of the recipe and the working for the Yellow Salt is awesome and looking useful to see,and also this is about the sea salt has little parts and pieces of other minerals besides sodium chloride,and also this factor consist of the atoms with 6 protons in their nuclei are of the chemical element carbon,so a great event this is and a great combination can be found in that.
