Yunomi w/nuka glaze.

This yunomi cup has the same nuka glaze inside and out. Though its appearance is varied through thickness.
Inside the nuka glaze is an unctuous white through thick application. It was also sieved through a fine mesh.
On the outside it's applied thinly and sieved through a coarse mesh. The bottom half applied over an ash undercoat.

Nothing better than home made bread.
I started making my own bread early this year after the supermarket stopped stocking my favourite light rye bread. Though I'm almost glad now, nothing better than bread straight from the oven; actually I try and wait 10 mins. at least, as it's hard to cut when it's still steaming. The only downside to home made bread is the time and effort to make it, but that's quickly forgotten with the addition of butter and jam.

Some books selected that I've had listed on this blog for years (time flies too quickly).
I'd like to draw your attention to some of them again.




I hope you enjoy them as much as I have/do.

Nuka glaze tests.

Ash is 33% of a Nuka glaze,. And as you can see in the above image. Preparation plays a big part.

Recipe for Nuka glaze, cone 10 Oxidation

Wood ash_33
Potash Feldspar_33
Water_1.5 times the weight of dry ingredients.

add 3% bentonite to help keep the glaze in suspension.
The downside of bentonite though is, it takes a lot of effort to sieve the first time.
