Glazes for Red Clay
Glazing is one of the final steps in creating a functional ceramic object. The glassy coating lies on top of the clay giving it both durability and decoration. I make all of my own glazes from scratch using recipes I have found or have been given. It can be hard to find nice, bright glazes that work well with red clay and other darker clay bodies, so recently, I started sharing cone 6 glaze recipes I've used with various red stoneware clay bodies on my Glazy.org profile.

Bang Heads, Spin Clay
"If a throughline exists between her punk rock and ceramics, it’s in the way she fully immerses herself in the history and lore of each medium to embody the ethos with integrity and authenticity."
