Low Fire Friday - A great glaze for figure sculpture

Meagan Chaney Gumpert - Friday, June 07, 2013

When I found and tested this glaze a few years ago, it was called "Bubble." Well, this glaze never did bubble for me, but instead created this amazing, old-wrinkled-skin look.  If you're a figurative sculptor and need a textured glaze, this is the one for you!

Bubble Glaze - Cone 04

Frit 3124.................30





Rutile                    15

And like most of my texture glazes, it needs to be applied, super, SUPER thick!

Hello! I'm a new ceramic major at MICA in Baltimore, and this glaze is exactly what I've been looking for! I'm just wondering whether this tile was fired in oxidation or reduction?

Thanks so much for posting all these findings, I am so exited to test them out. I'm just starting to build up my glaze repertoire, and as a largely figurative sculpture it can be very tricky.

Thanks again!--Bronwyn
