I made this bowl from Porcelain. The inside has writing in Japanese. I forget what. I made the glaze too. It's a clear high fire recipe with added black copper oxide, tin oxide, and rutile. You may have heard of the first two, and they give you the lovely shade of green. The rutile is a mineral containing titanium and iron among other things, and that's what makes the little blue specks. Then the brown under the glaze is red iron oxide.

@naturelovingfarmer Lovely, Ryan - Cone 6? If so, do you have the recipe for this glaze? And would you be willing to share? It would be nice to do a test glaze on the porcelain I use. It looks like it's pretty stable with no major drips near the base. Very very pretty bowl and I like the splashes of iron oxide underneath.

This is beautiful. I loved my pottery classes at school & still have the bits I made. However, I never got to use a wheel, or do the glazing/firing (which I found too complicated as it involves chemistry!)

Ditto. A beautiful piece of art. Cheers Yolanda
