Specialty Glaze of the Month - May 2013
Specialty Glaze of the Month - May 2013

I have to admit, when I chose Laguna’s R13 Copper for May’s Raku glaze of the month, I really wasn’t looking forward to it….a whole pile of copper penny pots…exciting. It’s not that I have anything against a good copper penny. It’s really nice. I particularly like to use a good flashing glaze as an accent on a piece. But when I do my glaze of the month tests, I try to show the featured glaze as the main focus of each piece, and as I mentioned, that makes for a lot of shiny metal surfaces. So I can’t tell you how pleasantly surprised I was by the results. I was blown away by the deep blue-greens blending into yellows, and subtle golden metallics that edge toward magenta & purple when reduced in Excelsior. With leaves as the reduction material, dark greens edging toward silvery-metallic was predominant, while the sawdust provided more of the results I expected – flashy copper metallic with the deep purple and blue iridescent tones. Laguna’s R-13 Copper has earned itself a spot in my regular repertoire of Raku glazes, and it can be part of yours as well, with our special glaze of the month price.
