Satin Celadon Glaze Recipe, ∆10 Reduction

  • Custer    27.60
  • Wollastonite   32.40
  • EPK   31.00
  • Silica   10.77


  • RIO   1.00
  • Talc   3.00
  • Bone Ash   2.00

Notes: This a ∆10 Reduction glaze that will fire to a celadon green with a satiny finish. Good over stoneware and particularly porcelain. Turns to a nice tenmoku over RIO and a nice visual mossy texture over Alberta Slip, similar to the dark area in the image above.

    Michael, I was thinking of doing some iron slip decoration on some pots before the bisque and then using this glaze. From what I understand from your description, I should expect those areas to have the temmoku effect and the rest of the pot will be the celadon. Is this correct?

    Also, what kind of clay was used on this piece? I’m assuming a stoneware, but light or dark?

    Yeah, you should get a tenmoku effect with the RIO slip as long as the iron content is high enough in the slip. I generally use straight RIO and water at the time of glazing.

    The clay body is a buff colored stoneware.

    Thanks for following.
