Cone 6 oxidation (larger image): Green Tea is a variegated sage green glaze that breaks over texture and can produce a glossy blue finish.
Cone 10 reduction (smaller image): Color changes to a variegated pink/blue/green.
TIP: If the glaze comes out with more of a matte finish then re-fire to produce more variation in the glazed surface. Thinner application of this glaze will produce less crystals. Thicker application will produce more crystals. This glaze has a gloss finish. This glaze combos well with other Mayco glazes. If you like combos with Capri blue and oyster, try green tea because they are in the same family of glaze.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Many glazes will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deeper the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
Chips shown are fired flat on a white clay body fired to cone 6 oxidation and cone 10 reduction. The choice of clay body, the thickness of glaze application, the firing process, and temperature will affect the fired results.
