These three tea bowls have glazes made from two different Albany Slip substitutes with a Chun glaze dipped over them. I call the glaze "Plum" but these turned out dark brown to amber. One glaze is made with Laguna's Albany sub, one glaze is made with a recipe for Albany sub that I found, another is a 50/50 mix of the two.
I have another Albany sub that I've used for this glaze that really does yield a dark plum. I was hoping the Laguna would give me the same results because the stuff is a pain to mix.
Another attempt at organization- attaching the recipe to the lid of the glaze bucket. Somehow, a notebook doesn't do the job for me. Over the past couple of years, when a glaze needs replenished, I put the recipe in a sandwich bag and tape it to the lid. I also include the date, and any changes made to the mixture. Works for me.
The top picture shows a few of the tea bowl glaze tests. Some went to Empty Bowls, a few went to Riverside Artists Gallery and a few more to River City Farmer's Market in Marietta, Ohio.
