First test tiles in reduction!

Let's start with the shinos:

Cherry blossom shino (John Britt)

Soda ash 10%
Nepheline Syenite 40%
Spodumene 40%
EPK 10%

Comments: No color but you can see the wax resist really well. Still fairly attractive glaze. I may try this on an iron bearing clay to see if there is some color.

Malcolm Davis shino

Soda ash 16%
F4 feldspar 9%
Nepheline Syenite 39%
Redart (I used alberta slip) 6%
EPK 17%
OM4 13%

Comments: The photo was taken with my phone and doesn't do justice to this beauty. The wax resist strip is a fantastic iron red. Really stunning glaze.

House shino

No recipe. This is the house shino for the studio. No clue what the recipe is.

Comments: Nice peach color. Wonderful texture. I will be using this glaze.
