I’ve had a lot of people contact me about the red glaze on the garlic pot in yesterday’s posting. This glaze is one of our class glazes developed by Bill van Gilder called ‘van Gilder Crocus Red.’ You can see it on his website along with a lot of his other cone 6 glazes.
I’ll also post the recipe below along with a photo of a little ewer done in the same glaze. The handle on the ewer and the top of the garlic jar are overdipped in clear which creates some really interesting movement and gold crystals if I’m lucky.
