dac glazes. crystalline. colour.

This is a big one. no apologies.


  Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, there lived a nice young fellow. he enjoyed long walks in the open, cake, boobs and sleep (probably in that order, well.. maybe not)

One day, whilst walking in the wide outdoors, he had a ground breaking idea, "Why not," he mused, thinking this through fully, "why not do this 'properly'. the way they told us it is to be done. a way that will change all of mankind, everywhere. forever."

and so it began.
 Months of exhaustive research, sweat, tears, meals, walks, and a distinct lack of boobs, finally began to culminate.
there one fine kiln opening, was a riot of colour. a menageries of textural goodness. a host of interesting and strangely similar but still unique forms.
this was the rise of versatile crystalline firing. 
  His pan ultimate battle finally emerged. after 100 vary-ing-ly unsuccessful efforts there began to emerge a glaze that could reveal the hidden mysteries of the universe.
could this be true? secret rumours of The Hidden glaze abound amongst any ceramic circle. could this be It?

The skies wept torrents, the heavens unleashing upon the very earth, when it was discovered this wasn't The One True Glaze, simply One That Worked.  
 disheartened, but unremittant, our stalwart hero took himself to the tallest darkest part of the castle, and sealed himself in. spells of binding held the door at the base of the tower, and ghoulish apparitions patrolled the stairs.
weeks went by and only candlelit shadowy images could bee seen through in the windows far above the ground.

finally however, emerged another triumph. The One That Worked now came with Colour. blues beep as an ocean, or as bright as the hottest summer day. greens found in a rainforest. browns that would be lead forth by the next messiah. opals, that looked, very opal-y.
  it was a clear success and now acclaimed hero, walked proudly, freely, and openly amongst an awed populace.
 It is to note that as our hero now walks there is a playful glint in is eye. look closely and you might just get a glimpse of the curious wonders he is further thinking of.

what is yet to come...

Look what you've done! Excellent!

Oh, and where are the boob photos?
24th-Oct-2006 01:05 pm (UTC)
how good are boobs! and there's NO fotos, because (as i explained) there was a distinct lack of them.

Don't believe him... He's evil...

You forgot Pina Coladas and 'getting caught in the rain'...

Oh, those are so lovely! Congratulations! Nice crystallisation, fractally goodness!

"blues beep as an ocean" is my new favorite phrase. Setting: The crashing sea, foaming madly like a rabid jellyfish, rising up before the great moon with the rarely heard BEEP of midnight.

There is a Korean restaurant here in town called "Yee Hwa." It amuses me to no end.

I imagine you are going to be very happy for awhile.
24th-Oct-2006 01:01 pm (UTC)
nope ...
24th-Oct-2006 01:14 pm (UTC)

Well you should be. AS I mentioned along time ago crystal glazing is tricksy and you have managed to learn some new trickseseses.

Hooray for pretty stuff that works!
24th-Oct-2006 01:02 pm (UTC)
sorta works. the crystals could be formed bettera.

Who really knows what is yet to come. Those tiles are brilliant though.

Did you get my emails?
24th-Oct-2006 01:03 pm (UTC)
are they on stuff and stuff, with no explaination, that looked suspiciously like spam, and ended up in my spam delete folder, which i do occassionally check anyhoo?
if so, then yeah, but i haven't opened them in fear.
24th-Oct-2006 09:16 pm (UTC)
Ahem. Possibly.

Sorry, they're scans from the book on tiles that I did at work, which has been shockingly busy lately. They're balck and white, and not great quality, and as soon as it gets less busy, i'll pop into marketing, and do some colour ones.
24th-Oct-2006 10:04 pm (UTC)
cool! i'll look at them now, only somewhat fearfully ;)

You're going to need a crystal icon, like one of these.

I think I like the last one best.

maybe oneday, when the testing is complete...

thanks anyhow :)

"and you might just get a glimpse of the curious wonders he is further thinking of."

"what is yet to come..."

Hmm I would guess....
25th-Oct-2006 05:14 am (UTC)
you know, i honestly hadn't got THAT far. BUT now you've mentioned it...
25th-Oct-2006 08:31 am (UTC)
Do ya recon  touch_the_earth would lend me some?
26th-Oct-2006 01:46 am (UTC)
I think you boobies would be less oranic and more spacey....the crystalline glaze would be cool...imagine bright blue or green space boobies!!!! You could agment them withmetalbits...like jewelry. Then suspend them from the celing ith invisable with so they just float and hover..
