Various Colours


Really pleased with the fired porcelain tiles. The higher temperature has thrown up some amazing variants in colour and tone.

The left 3rd has been fired to Stoneware Oxidation (1260 - 1270 degrees)

The right 3rd to Stoneware Reduction ( 1280 degrees)

and the bottom 3rd to Earthenware (1060 - 70 degrees)

Below are the 10 Oxide tiles.

1. 5% Yellow Ochre 2. 10% Yellow Ochre

3. 3% Chromium Oxide 4. 5% Chromium Oxide

5. 5% Black Iron Oxide

6. 2% Red Iron Oxide 7. 5% Red Iron Oxide

8. 3% Rutile 9. 6% Rutile

10. 5% Manganese

I like the stronger colours most. The rutile additions (tiles 8 and 9) are my favourite as they are solid shades. The blues and orangey yellows are very similar to the rocks and pebbles found on Spittal Beach.

I missed out on adding a transparent glaze, therefore I shall heat the tiles up so that they are warm enough to hopefully absorb the glaze.
