Raw Materials

In order to see what each raw material looks like when glazed and fired in reduction and oxidation, we were set the task of testing a selection each.

I was lucky enough to have oxides which were mostly already mixed and ready to go.

There was a 'dangerous' one - Vanadium Pentoxide, which we had to scrounge off Wendy. Rubber gloves, masks and full extraction was needed - felt like Lara Croft...if only!

I was particularly impressed with the neatness of my test tiles! Very unlike me but I intend to carry on this way!

Im looking forward to seeing the array of all 57 tiles ( actually 114 as one each for R and O)
