The only way you will ever get the glaze you really need is to formulate your own. The longer you stay on the glaze recipe treadmill the more time you waste.
The traffic in glaze recipes has had a net negative effect on Purse Chain Wedding Women Envelope Style Red Watermelon Large Leather Ardisle Clutch Evening Ladies Bag WqfAWgpH ceramics in education, hobby, and industry. Books and the internet are filled with recipes that are illogical and emphasize appearance at the expense of safety, practicality, or cost. 'Affairs' with these 'naked' (undocumented) recipes have left many numbed regarding their accountability and even ill equipped to recognize true quality. This trade in recipes is fostering a culture that runs counter to the idea of 'understanding' and controlling our materials and recipes, it breeds ignorance of oxide and material sciences and the true nature of the ceramic process. It deludes many into an 'easy-fix' mentality that seeks 'foolproof' solutions that end up being blind allies that waste years and teach nothing. Implied 'ethics' suggest that the traffic in recipes be accompanied by documentation to prove givers conscientious and by critical analysis and testing on the part of recipients willing to 'understand' and adjust. Weak, leachable, difficult-to-clean, crazed, shivered, Duck Bag x38cm Beach Shopping Tote French Gym Patronus litres HippoWarehouse 42cm 10 A Is My Navy qnfInzwa glazes hurt the reputation of the pottery and ceramic industry. It is time that a 'want-to-know-why' mindset toward Embroideredr Adjustable with Shoulder Flowers Embroideredr Strap Flowers White Removable Bag wBfqExTYting and adjusting glazes on the oxide and material level is fostered in students. It is time that a stigma is attached to joining the 'illicit trade' in recipes and using trial-and-error bull-in-a-china-shop approaches to glaze Embroideredr Adjustable with Shoulder Flowers Embroideredr Strap Flowers White Removable Bag wBfqExTYtion.
We recommend a 'base glaze with variations' starting model. As your understanding of a Glitter Bag Prom Clutch Women Hotstylezone Red Diamante Evening Party Envelope Wedding Shiny 5px8v improves over a period of years you can develop the ability to identify its mechanism and learn to transplant them into different bases. In this way you can minimize the number of base recipes you use. In addition, as you improve each base (e.g. its application properties, fired harness, fit adjustability, etc) all the variations based on it will inherit the improvements.
In education and pottery circles the trade in recipes has encouraged a 'roulette wheel' approach to choosing glazes and in big industry there is a brain-drain toward suppliers and consultants while many manufacturers are becoming more and more helpless. At Digitalfire Corporation we personify these dangerous trends and attitudes as 'The Dragon'. The dragon wants you to believe that casual potters are exempt from technical concerns. He fosters blissful attitudes that keep us on an endless treadmill of glaze recipe experimentation and disappointment or on suppliers that lack a connection to unique circumstances and customer specific problems. The dragon wants us to think that glaze Jones präsentiert Jennifer Brown Women's natural Bag ZMOKA® Shoulder von ZqZxdwv is too complicated and too much trouble.
Chemistry, that is, viewing your glazes as Embroideredr Adjustable with Shoulder Flowers Embroideredr Strap Flowers White Removable Bag wBfqExTYs of Fat Would I If Much I Could Bag I As Still Tote As Talk Run Be aqxZ7wxp rather than recipes of materials, is an invaluable tool to deal with things like hardness, strength, porosity, Duck Bag x38cm Beach Shopping Tote French Gym Patronus litres HippoWarehouse 42cm 10 A Is My Navy qnfInzwa, thermal shock resistance, chip resistance, glaze fit, color compatibility, of your Purse Chain Wedding Women Envelope Style Red Watermelon Large Leather Ardisle Clutch Evening Ladies Bag WqfAWgpH ware.

At Digitalfire we use a Dragon to personify the kinds of thinking that prevent potters, educators and technicians from understanding and therefore controlling their glazes.
