glaze testing 
14th-Oct-2006 12:49 pm
spent the morning laying out 70 test glazes using 'Ian Currie's grid method' - it's based on volumetric blending. fascinating stuff. will make test tiles to put the glaze on this monday.

Kinda neat. Kinda OCD looking as well :)

I found my copy of the Museum of London "English Medieval Tiles" and am all intrigued in trying to make some now. Lacking kiln. This may be a key issue.

how good is being ocd!

you could always dig a pit, pu tyour tiles at the base, build a big fire and take the fired tile sout. provided you got a low firing clay, you'd be right!

scan images in for me, i'd love to look

Heh, the house organisation happening right now is a complete reflection of ocd-ness on the parts of me and my husband.

You know, that's not a bad idea. I might have to think about this more!

Not a prob, i'll bring it to work tomorrow.
